I'm glad the results look good in your market. The MSN results in my market are worse than I've ever seen on any of the big three SEs. The top 3 results go:
1. total spam blogspot site
2. Huge affiliate site
3. Authority site for related terms, but not in my market
Other listings include single pages about the search terms on sites that are otherwise unrelated, a wholesale site that offers nothing but product lists and doesn't even sell to the public, a one page site that only says, click this link to our other site that is actually open among others. All those on the first two pages, the results get worse after that.

surftrack: always feel free to submit reports on spam you see. If you'd like, send me a sticky with the example you're seeing. Could be we have a bug.

I'm seeing poor results in my sector. My main site is 10 years old, hundreds of thousands of pages. My top competitors are 10, 7 and 5 years old. All of us have good content and tons of pages. There's a lot of mutual respect between us (we communicate regularly, attend the same events/shows and sit down for meals/chats when we get the chance). All if us have always been in the top 4 positions in the SERPS. MSN is now listing a new, unknown site with no history and pretty much zero content in the top position for a major keyword, followed by 5 scraper sites, and then other listings which are barely related to the keyword. The 4 of us are below all that.

I have noticed MSN results getting much better. Heck, even a few times better than Google! Not bad! Still have some problems to work on, but they are doing a much better job, IMHO, than Yahoo! for sure; Yahoo! is getting worse...

yup indeed and their msn adcenter is quite nice to work with, looking good.

I agree that the results are improving - but still far from "good". It continues to suffer from the same failures I noted many many months ago.
