Read entire tread on "New MSN Algo Having Problems...
Might answer your questions...
MSN has run a new Algo to combat Spam sites.
Lowered Description & Body KW density to rock bottom...
Hope this helps. Fish Texas

personally, I'm not gonna worry about it, it's their loss

Actually, I love msn, just a little frustrated. It seems msn occasionally likes to move stuff around and then after a week or so stuff will come back up. I'd be careful making any serious changes based on this algo tweak/change because if you have sites that have good rank in other se's you could hurt their rank there.

I don't believe they will come back this time...unless KW density changes are made.

might be true, just be careful I guess

Fish is on the money - drop your keyword density right down for onpage factors, reduce content levels and outbound links per page and trust me you will rank for eveything in msn - Oh and if your domain name contains the keyword you cant fail to rank!
You wont come back in msn unless you take this action, but frankly i would leave things alone - The msn algo doesnt work, the serps are a mess as a result and it cant be long before they dump it or change it entirely anyway.

that's my thinking .... I still see some sites with insane keyword density ranking very well on keywords so
I did make a very minor adjustment, make me feel better
please love us again msn, we're sorry :)

Good posts guys....thanks. Im not gonna mess with my keyword density, links etc with things going so well in google after spending a long time reaching the top ten for my 3 most important 2 to 3 word keyword phrases.
It seems MSN have a major problem with their algo.
My URL does contain my most important keyword and that's not helping my rankings. My business and website name also contains my most important keyword phrase so i have little choice in having rather high KW density + it's working on Google!
Hope MSN decide to sharpen their act up coz ATM their results in my industry which are usually very stable are all over the place.
