"New" Old MSN search not listing dynamic pages

Is this 'cause they dropped paid inclusion?

I am not talking here about the techpreview version.

I want to know how to get dynamic catalog pages into MSN search.

I can no longer do it through Postion Tech?

What's the latest?

I have a customer who wants his catalog in MSN!

With MSN not utlising any form of PFI currently, so incoming links to those pagres or perhaps static links to those pages.

This is where PFI (in particular Trusted Feed) was very strong - it does provide deep content to the SEs if done correctly.

Google and Inktomi/Yahoo are all over these pages. Well indexed in those engines since new catalog went live in March. This is a well established PR6 site that ranks well with lots of links. All they did was update the catalog. Again, Google and Inktomi/Yahoo have no problems with these new dynamic pages.

But nothing in MSN except the catalog home page. The same is true in ASK. What are we doing wrong?

I thought we should consider PFI but I don't see anything available.

Any advice on how to get these pages into MSN and ASK?

Well, perhaps I have answered my own question here.

Went over to new TechPreview site for MSN today and there are all the pages for the new catalog.

MSN is going to launch their new search soon. They wisely are NOT going to do PFI. Overture Site Match is dead. May it RIP.

I may not like all about the techpreview search (waaay to many repeats from the same site for a search) but my clients catalog is now in MSN.

WHEN is TechPreview going to show how many results in a search? Right now, only shows 1-15, then 16-30. Frustrating... but I'm sure (?) it will be fixed.

Actually MSN have choosen their words very carefully by not ruling out PFI in the future.

Read some of the articles again.
