My website was visited two weeks ago. However, it got stuck in my tarpit because it didn't respect my robots meta tag. *Sigh* Oh well, I emailed MSN to let them know that their bot is still a little buggy. (Un)fortunatly, the bot hasen't returned since.
Rumors say that its planning to release in 2005 - with Longhorn. Rumor's also say that MSN will integrate the search with Longhorn, Other Windows OS's, Internet Explorer and possibly other M$ products to get it promoted and to spread the word to the whole world.
Results look like the current MSN search to me.
they are. Infact, they are 100% Ink results.
Could MS possibly be trying to confuse us? Oh wait, they are.
"100% Ink results." I tend to agree. Did a search my one good sire is not on and everything else is. The same site is not on Y!, but I know MSN Bot has been crawling it like a nut. Can't wait till it launches. So far Ink has kept me out of #2 and #3 search sites.
Now that inktomi is being replaced by site search (overture) does this mean that the only way to pay into inktomi/msn is via site search? I've been using inktomi via positiontech for sometime and love the service, however I'm concerned now about my recent submits will they stay in inktomi for 1 year as I paid? or will they be replaced by sitesearch as more people start buying in?
