Considering this happened right after MyDoom was released, I'm guessing MyDoom is responsible for this.
A little surprised they brought the LOOK listings back so soon.
I'm very well aware of that, and have also noticed over the past several weeks there's been a pattern to when Look listings are listed and when they're not. ( which currently the pattern seems to have been broken).
My apologies if there was any confusion from my previous post.
FYI, I've *only* seen INK results all day today on M$N, same as yesterday. No LS at all. At least 10 different checks throughout the day.
Not the first time that different people see different SERP's concurrently on M$N lately. But my INK traffic is down today, so that must be why.
Could be a regional feed thing then?
Possibly. I've checked the listings from 4 different locations via shell (LA, Houston, Richmond VA, and Philadelphia) and they all show MSN with Overture and LookSmart listings.
I'd agree that what you're seeing doesn't make sense as a test of any kind.
Unless they've decided to ONLY have listings that they'll get paid for, I don't think this was intentional.
Speaking of which, I still INK results today, no matter where I look. Any updates from other corners of the globe? Still too early in the day to tell by looking at M$N traffic.
