When I search for www.myurl.com is msn all I get is my homepage listed with the URL as the title.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Can anyone shed some light on this?

I haven't seen it on MSN. Has your site been crawled by MSN's robot? Are there many links pointing to your site?

This is going on more than one site. One is relatively new but the other site is older with many links pointing to it.

I think it creates an entry for a URL even when it gets a 301 or 302 response pointing to the default page, and since the 301/302 response doesn't contain any HTML and hence no title or text, all it can use is the URL.
It is happening with my domain as well. So [mydomain.com...] will show as www.mydomain.com, whereas [mydomain.com...] will have the title from the page.
