Msn has leaked to several Trade Magazines that their New Search Engine will:

--> Have internal (hard drive) searching capabilities as well as search the Web during queries...

--> Have Geo-targeting SERPs...

It seems that RELEVANCY will be harder to master than Google
but new search engines may offer "esoteric" features to make themselves stand out!

If they can get a good crawl / index update pattern - that everyone know's about that will help in a big way - probably one of the most important factors to google's growth - however now that G has thrown its robots/algo into a fuzzy mode - this may allow a new SE such as MSN to walk right in pickup G's idea and utilise it to great effect

Regarding the Engine going online for next spring - it's wait and see - though a long time coming - as they are presently delivery SERPs on MSN that are owned by Yahoo.

it was very obvious to all SEOs that MSN would DROP Looksmart - especially when they added the "sponsored links"

It seemed very Micosoft-like to either By Them or Go-all-the-way

Will Looksmart survive after MID-January?

Will it modify itself even more
