I guess we all still want to believe in Santa but unfortunately I spoke with a MSN advertising rep today and although not specific he did say not to expect much until end of 1st Q 05. Like many here we have great coverage in beta and would like nothing more than having an early Xmas but don't count on it.

beta.search.msn.com is just redirecting for me to normal msn/yahoo search. Nothing interesting.

For me here in the UK msn.com and the beta SERPS are identical.

msn.co.uk isn't returning any results, it just goes straight back to the search home page. Update in progress?

If this is it, I am one excited bunny.

I'm seeing identical results from [search.msn.com...] and [beta.search.msn.com...] here in Spain.

[search.msn.co.uk...] still showing the old (crappy) results.

I was on [msn.com...] and it was showing the same layout search box as Beta and the same results as beta.

I went onto [msn.co.uk...] and it was showing the old search layout and old results.

Maybe they are testing it large?

Old results. Atlanta and New Jersey @ 10:30 am EST & Romanian 11 am EST.

Assume they are live testing to limited locations. As much as I wish otherwise.

I've been seeing the beta results on msn.com all day here in the UK.

But interetingly, in the right hand corner (and this is on msn.com) under the MSN logo it says "Search (beta)".

So, is this the real go live.

Hmmm, feels like the Google Dance of days past.

I guess you could say we're waiting for the invitation to the MSN Dance.

I'm as giddy as a school girl before the prom.
