I have noticed that my site dropped dramatically in the last week or 2. At 1 point I had about 2900 pages listed. Today I have about 275.

I don't know what's happening, but I don't like it.

My observation is that if your home page is not the first one when you do "site:your_url" you are in trouble. MSN just like google may not like dup pages i.e. www.yoursite.com and www.yoursite.com/index.htm See if you can find any.

Same here. Homepage gone but the rest of site is indexed well.

I suggest all of you affected write to MSN from the contact form on their site. I wrote to them explaining my situation and received a personal reply that their engineers are checking it out.

I hope its not a new form of hijack!
