Relevance, Relevance, Relevance!
In building 88 on Microsoft’s main campus in Redmond, WA there is a small, but growing group of us that think about relevance constantly. We eat, live and breathe ideas and technology that makes our relevance better. Having worked on this release for a little over 9 months we could not be more excited about the relevance of our new engine. From our metrics, and more importantly our usage as customers, our new engine is so far superior to our old one.

Hummmmm, I wonder if they're THINKING about the crawling & indexing of pages too?

actually, I think the engine is much improved search wise

Sadly, indexing of new content seems very slow,

However, a step in the right direction

I've no doubt they've worked very hard on this, but it is WAY too premature for them to start pronouncing their own kudos -- too much remains broken. They've managed to push the vehicle out of the garage -- now it's time to tune it up so it runs properly. At this moment as it sits in the driveway, it's not yet ready for the cybersuperhighway. We can only hope that it won't take another 9 months to actually start indexing full sites again.

Yea, they are definitely getting better for sure. I would say in order of relevance...Google, MSN, Yahoo. Ask is just dead so I don't ever even look at them anymore. I've got to hand it to MSN, it does look like they are working hard. I hope they keep it up!
