At Live Search, one of the most common questions we receive from our peers at microsoft.com and msn.com is how to optimize their sites for search. But microsoft.com is unlike most other sites on the Internet. It is huge, containing millions of URLs, and is growing all the time. However, large content sites like microsoft.com and msn.com are not the only sites that can have an infinite number of URLs. There are also large ecommerce sites and government agency sites that produce very large numbers of URLs.
As with any site, our original recommendations on how to rank in Live Search are still important. But we’ve given it some thought and wanted to provide some recommendations oriented toward very large sites. Over the next several posts, we will be discussing topics that may help your site, especially if it is very large.
