From a consumer point of view google / yahoo are STILL probably the most relevant search result provider. MSN will take time in catching up.

Taking up some weird search keyword phrase [but realistic one]

MSN: *
<snip>

Google: ***
<snip>

Yahoo: *****
<snip>

Strangely yahoo has the perfect number one result!

I have been criticized for complaining about MSN beta.

So I would like to hear why the MSN beta results for:

buy oranges in korea

are so superior to Yahoo and Google. You would think from some of the posts here that MSN beta is the holy grail of SEs.

I assert that the MSN results for buy oranges in korea are exactly the kind of useless results that I have been describing.

This SE should be failed back to alpha. It is embarassing to Microsoft that this junk is in beta, let alone being tested live as MSN search.

MlHampton, I know roycerus is saying Yahoo has the best results.

I am asking those who have posted here on this thread saying that MSN results are excellent to explain how they believe that the MSN results for buy oranges in korea are superior to Yahoo and Google results.

I am awaiting their earnest replies with great anticipation.

Thanks MSN beta for proving the point. Glad you do not bother with pesky diversions such as exact phrase matches, META tags, page titles, and heading text. You make sure none of that junk makes your SERPs. You want to see the individual keywords peppered at random in body text and will reward sites accordingly. As proof of your reward system, we present your #1 result for
