I never use MSN.co because of ther bad results, but these days I must have a eye on what they are doing, but today when I made a few seaches, almost evey result was good and I never liked the results on MSN.com

this is not about the preview site.

The results I am seeing still look to be Yahoo/ink (namely as before) but I think if you have not used MSN for a while, what you are seeing is the fact that these results are much better than they used to be. It is not the "big switch" though from where I am standing.

Well I never use msn.com, because of the bad results, but maybe 4-5 times a year I try see what has happen and today the results pretty ok.

I don't know whether your opinion derives from your good position or just from an objective observation, but I have to disagree.
When the first 40 results includes Tripod, Geocities and Angelfire (!) sites, then it's everything but pretty good. BTW it was a travel related search. YST results are awful..

They seem to be showing "New MSN Search", whatever that is...

Could it be that you are in an industry which heavily utilized PFI and now you are not seeing those results blended in with the organic results?

I just made a few searches for some products, free services, my own stuff thats all and the results where better then I have ever seen on MSN.com, because I never use that engine because used to be complete crap. There results arenot the same as on Yahoo.com.
