I have 8 PFI urls in PT, I am targeting a set of kw with good results in inktomi, however when I search with Msn for some kw I get similar serps than Puresearch, for some others I am out of Msn but in Puresearch. Looksmart is not an issue here because there are not web dir serps. What's the matter with PT?

Not necessarily true. Looksmart have trusted feed status with Inktomi just like Positiontech, but they have been having some troubles getting it to work right, and a less reliable rumour has it MSN tells the difference and descriminates anyway.

I am of the opinion that MSN is not purposely descriminating, but does tweak Inktomi results, however Looksmart's trusted feeds are not maximising the fields open to them.
