2:Microsoft's New Internet Search Software Is Officially Launched 2:Live.com is now live Praxus
It seems like Live.com does not send referrer info when someone clicks on a search result. I track my sites with statcounter, and since yesterday am no longer seeing the referrer from visitors I know are coming from live.com.
This is a real problem since I like seeing what keywords people are searching for when my sites come up.
Yes - this has been noticed over the last few days in a few places.
First by SurfTrack

Then it made it to the home page discussion

Well here we are on Monday and I am still not seeing butkis for referrers..... the other post is getting kinda lost on other stuff.... I figure I'd BUMP this one
Anyone getting referrers logged yet?
still getting didley squat unfortunately twebdonny
I use sitemeter and am getting no referrer info except for those that may show up under search preview panes.
Bloody drag... I have folks far and why freaking because they think they have lost all MSN traffic. Maybe they have? I sure wouldn't know.
It is strange though that a FEW found they're way through? Looking at a data set over 5 clients, there is ONE site that had ONE search referrer today from MSN.
Try though I might, reproducing that search term and clicking through (on IE and FF ) I cannot get it to pass/record it?
msndude said it 'wasn't by design'and 'We're looking into it.' ... no word as of yet.
i've noticed the same thing on occasion gypsy, the only thing I can think of is that it's possibly some sort of old cached results that are left over from before the switch (where the link isn't hashed) thegypsy
Yeah it is curious I had heard around;
1. Was from 'open in new window'
1. FF open in new TAB
Tried these and still nada passing.
I guess it's wait and see... the SEO world's favorite family game!
