March 12 DM News Article [dmnews.com]

LookSmart has signed a deal with Microsoft for MSN to display LookSmart search results at times. The recent agreement, which LookSmart announced yesterday, leaves it up to MSN to decide when to use the listings.

Still some MSN traffic to be had via LookSmart, maybe for some time to come.

I think this is in direct response to what Yahoo just did with their search engine.
In other words... msn was just as suprised as everybody else and this is their response. My guess is that they aren't happy with the results that INK?YAHOO is showing and they figure, if they are going to show crappy results, tehy might as well make some money off of the crappy results.

I think MSN is back to Inktomi now. It was Looksmart a couple of days ago.
