What's the deal with MSN search? In the past years, many of my sites have grown in size and content considerably and google usually match the growth with an regular increase of traffic, easily visible on a graph with a slow and steady uptrend. Yahoo is more or less the same, but a lot less visitors and it takes a lot more time for the uptrend to start. It ends up catching on in the end, though.
However, with MSN, I get almost the same minuscule amount of traffic since day 1, when I presently have 50 times the content. It just doesn't match the growth of a web site. Traffic is so low, it's really an negligible player... in my case.
I would gladly welcome some diversification of traffic though, but outside of google and yahoo, a few good referring web sites and the odd social bookmarking surge, that's about it.
I've started to read a bit on this forum, and I do use the non-www to www 301 redirect. This could be it. Or is it typical for others to have this very low traffic from MSN (live or search or whatever they call themselves these days)? It feels like no one is searching anything more complex than a few big and popular keywords with them.
