Itís not going to ruin business, we never depended on MSN traffic any way. Itís just strange to see this site dropped completely after ranking so well.
Has this happened to anybody else?
My first guess is that they are implementing some form of pagerank, or turned up the knob on that more. That guess could be and probably is wrong, but it's my first impression.
What's odd is that they had my site number one for a keyword phrase, after the change, another page on the site, that only mentions that keyword phrase a single time, in a link to the main keyword phrase page, is now number 7, and the old page is lower, in the 20's I think. The old page is the one that's actually about the keyword phrase. Go figure.
With this beta stuff you can only get so worried. Although my keywords had held pretty solid through the last month, the latest thing is definitely a change in how pages are being treated.
