Can anyone shed some light on why when I search MSN.com I get completely (well almost completely) different results from that of live.com? Same keywords, different serps. Hasn't MSN.com search migrated to Live.com's serps yet?

Yeah, we come up in the top 10 in live and page 4 in msn. I've tried it on several other machines now and on one of them it didn't happen so I don't know if it's somehow machine based? Cookies were cleared in all cases, so I don't get it....

"Live.com likes to go local " that means in other words that to rank in MSN or live.com worldwide you must host the same page in every land you are interested ,like ,.com in the US ,.co.uk in the UK ,.de in Germany and so on......

Toothache - Something like that.
I hate it too and think that although with certain limited searches it may make sense I don't think the general public need their SERPS censoring by MSN. Especially when there is a clear option for selecting just where you want your results to come from in the main interface...
Anyway thats the way it is for now, like it or loath it.
