Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
What is the general score on the way MSN brings back its results.
Plus when I submit via the add url function what does this add my site to????
Adam (a touch confused) Moran :(
ntl uses only Inktomi
keyword #1 brings up the pages 18 through to 26
on Freeserve the same word - pages at 19-27 and on both MSNs at 21-29
other keywords/phrases have the same slight differences.
They are also listed on LookSmart.
Incidentally, keyword #1 was at positions 3-5 until 2 weeks ago and another phrase was on Freeserve at 7 & 8 but 14-15 in MSN. This one has now dropped out of existence (or at least as far as I can be bothered to search.) This last one is not listed on LookSmart either.
When you submit to MSN itself, it supposedly goes into MSN's directory. MSN.co.uk list 'Web Directory Sites' first, followed by 'Web Directory sites US' and then 'Web pages'
"In the Category box, click the category in which your site should be displayed in the MSN Search Web Directory."
"Submitted URLs are subject to editorial review, and submitting a URL does not guarantee acceptance by MSN Search."
Perhaps it just means the the editors don't get round to reviewing very often so the results are pure LookSmart?
