I happened to see this morning that I am now on page one for a 230 million competing word. Last week I was on page 4 for this word. I have only noticed an increase in traffic for this particular word. Is anyone else seeing a change in the MSN SERPs?

Changes across the board, all good, for me at least :-)

In the kw's I monitor, the results are all around 'better' than the last major movement, which I have noted as ~04/06/2005

There do seem to be some changes.

I noticed yesterday that I finally made it into the top 10 for my main money word. About time! :)

A bit of improvement maybe but the piles of subdomain garbage remain as high as ever.

seeing exactly the same but surely the results numbers are incorrect. it doesnt make sense. if google indexes 8billion pages then msn must be indexing 750billion pages or so.

I've noticed that the number of pages returned as results is way out on some searches:

2.1 Million Google pages for a single keyword I rank #2 on MSN, MSN say 335 Million!

And many others, this is MSN.co.uk

The results that I initially saw on the 20th have reverted back to prior results. At least this is true for the keywords I was watching. I aslo agree with the statements about the number of pages containing the keyphrase. I was looking at a five word combination the other day and when I looked in MSN, they reported 450 million pages had that phrase on it. No way. Google returns like 12 million.

I'm #1 for 355 million results... before the change, I was #7-8 out of 800k. Quite the shift.

I'm seeing the mega increases in results, but no changes in indexed pages on domains, so it seems to be some weird bug.

MSN is getting A LOT better than Google lately.

Google has added way too many rules and is starting to kill itself.

I'm not sure what is going on... I was #7 for a 445 million word, then #31 today I am #7 again.

Does anyone else see this flip flopping with MSN lately?

They're still returning a kazillion results for queries that return 200K on g.

I think we are seeing better results here the last 2 weeks time then for a long time, still no full indexed non dynamic sites, but the serps has become better and MSN is the engine that handles the scraper problem best.

The #1 site for my niche in MSN serps is by far the worst scraper in that niche.
Many outgoing links (good ones BTW) but almost all are bogus 302 redirects.

I have the usual complaints about other sites/pages listed,
way too much junk in high positions.

I don't watch MSN serps much any more; I looked in for this message. -Larry

Something doesn't add up... where did they get all of this data?

search phrase: widgets
msn = 241,161,305
google = 3,050,000
yahoo = 2,430,000
ask = 676,300

This update looks like it has a bug. The result counts are enormous compared to the rest of the se community.

Okay, so the numbers are inflated....but you'll look REALLY impressive to potential clients if you rank well!

As for the results, they're coming along pretty well. I see much less junk at the top when searching than I do on 'G'.

I also see better results here the last 3-4 weeks, but still there site counts suck, they are just numbers, not a real count, also when you make a site:yourdomain.com search and go a few pages forward the page counts reduces.

The results definitely took a turn for the better this past week, although the huge amount of subdomain spam is obvious and the weirdo inflated numbers make you wonbder what is up with that.

I see a little change againe the last 5 days until now for the better once again, its as if they finaly count the internal sites into the serps, NOT listed but they count a little more then before.

Still the bad site is normal HTML does not get fully listed only php,asp other dynamic pages and there site count is still not right, but what the he.. in the beginning only the serps counts.

Might look even more impressive by pointing out that MSN has an obvious bug that does not appear to be ironed out.
