Does everyone else see the same?
I still do not see OVER results but still only see Looksmart links in directory results.
The sponsored links appear to be MSN's
The changes come only days before chief rival Yahoo is expected to outline plans for an updated search service at its annual conference with financial analysts. Part of the announcement may cover Yahoo's designs for its proposed acquisition of Inktomi...
I wonder what Y! will announce?
I think it should.
MSN has always tweaked the LS results. You can be #1 in an LS search, and then be #8 in a MSN search.
Soon MSN may dump INK since Yahoo bought them.
MSN also represents 25-30% of web searches.
There's enough unique and wierd things about MSN that it would be helpful to have its own forum.
However a lot has changed in the past couple of years, with a lot more sharing if databases. Y! at present is highly influenced by Google as we know together with some influence from their own directory. But now they truly do have their own non-directory database with the acquisition of inktomi. Before Y! forum discussion was mainly about PayForReview issues. Its a bit more complicated now, and maybe it is a time to consider having a diff MSN forum. I'm not convinced personally but its worth a consideration.
