Suprise! This just showed up in my logs today...

http*//search.msn.com/preview.aspx?ps=ba%3d76.0..4.23.%26&q=bed+in+a+bag

Kinda weird... they have caching seems to me...

Any thoughts?

About Search Preview images
With Search Preview, small images of Web sites are displayed in your search results, which are useful in deciding if you want to visit a site. Search Preview images are a feature of the Search Explorer Bar in Microsoft Internet Explorer. Small preview images are displayed for the first six search results on each results page. To use Search Preview, you must have MSN Search set as the default search provider for the Search Explorer Bar.

Been around for well over a year and will show a preview of sites both in the natural results and sponsored listings.

It's been around for at least a year....maybe two, possibly more.....forgot the exact date now ;)

It accounts for about 25% of my MSN referrals (MSN is about 23% of all SE referrals) and is therefore widely used with the MSN user base (Approx 5.7% of all SE referrals).
