The one word terms seem to be returning looksmart results, any search of 2 or more terms returns "web sites". If anyone wants any specifics they can sticky me.
Have you contacted Looksmart?
I know they do take some time to reply sometimes.
We have not had any reply from them as yet.
Seems to me most people join Looksmart for better ranking
on MSN, so if they have dropped Looksmart results, they are
going to suffer badly.
Hopefully it is just a short term glitch.
Since LS is getting the bulk of their revenue from MSN, and Overture listings generally have a higher CPC, the question is - why hasn't MSN made the 'right' move already / and dropped them?
I keep expecting it to happen...perhaps this is the beginning?
I am also in the east US and see the changes, try 2 or more word search terms, the generic 1 word terms still seem to be going to LS
using kw1 kw2 kw3, the NFP site was the sole return
under web directory (seems to be a right fair combo, as it should since 1+2+3 is the name of the NFP)
using kw4 kw5 kw6, no web directory appears but the
site shows up under web sites as #1, so I'm not gonna grumble
Not sure but I think the title of your listing is now somehow used in the search.
Site used to be
XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX-keyword1,keyword2 and keyword3
That is the only relevant change I can see that L$ made to my listing.

Hopefully it was indeed the latter: the demise of L$ would really make my day/week.
