I was checking my backlinks on alltheweb.com and guess what i saw?.

In my backlinks were search engine result pages from MSN search.!

Think about it, why would MSN let alltheweb crawl its result pages?. This is possible only if Alltheweb has some sort of a backdoor entry into the MSN database....hmmm..something will happen soon i guess..?

MSN will take on the Google monopoly?

msn.com uses Inktomi, with Looksmart listings first. msn.com so far is the one major search portal that hasn't gone Google.
