Any idea on how we can sign up for MSN PPC not via Overture?

This really gets me nervous.............
This beta is their actual results for spidering?
or based on Inktomi?
I am banned by Inktomi, good knows why, and searhing for my company name I am no where in msn beta.

seems to be Inktomi, the result is very similar.

Looks like small old database and quite old like old INK 6 months
few searches i did

google 100% i.e. 8000 results
Yahoo 75% i.e. 6000 results
Beta MSN 30% i.e. 2400 results

this was with 15 searches on variouse catagories

so this is just test of algos rather than actual data

Forgot to tell you to use IE browser for MSN Search Beta. The other one will use a different database. With Mozilla you get 418 results on Linux and with IE you get more than a million ;-)
