MSN has spidered all my pages but is yet to join the links

I'm expecting wild SERP changes over the next few weeks

After spending some time looking at the beta MSN SERPs I've decided that while MSN have found most of my sites/pages they have not been able to join all the links yet (internet/external).

I can see many pages which have cached links that have not been processed.

This leads me to believe that the current SERPs are bias towards sites which have inbound links from sites that are not only cached but have processed outbound links as well.

I've found these 'cached & processed sites' to be either lucky or historically powerful sites.

Does anyone else have sites which they believe have been fully indexed but not had all their outbound/inbound links credited yet?

They fully again spidered my site this morning after making the Beta their standard search. But as now they did not update their cached sites too. So it looks as they will take them some time to process the data. This may be too thrue for links.

How much do you think is MSN now taking count of links? Yahoo seems not to take much attention on links...

Links still rule the SEO game as far as I'm concerned.
I find it entirely inconceivable that MSN would rely heavily on ‘on-page’ factors.

My guess is MSN “considered” on-page factors when they decided how to rank pages which is probably way more than Google have done in a while.
