Looks that way, a few positions that were held for a while suddenly dropped to page 2, being replaced by keyword stuffed page.

nope, still see lots of junk in the UK, thought for a slight moment of hope then that msn were waking up to how bad the results are and were rolling them back to how they were prior to the bodge up.

No such luck!

Only people that rate the current MSN results are the staff if you ask me!.

Yup major shakeup. Apparently MSN thought that two-word.subdomains.com needed to be joined by three-key-words.subdomains.com in the results.

Pathetic. It's amazing they haven't lost even more of their market share than they have... or at least they can thank their competitors for that.

I can't seem to get more than 250 pages to display for any domain. Anybody seeing more?

There certainly has been an update.
Strange that so few people are interested. 2 days and only one page of comments. MSN has significant market share. I lost a lot of trafic through this update and looking at what is in front of me, I'm annoyed. The worst thing for me is that MSN users are very click happy, they click on every thing, including ads.
Dont know why MSN doesnt generate more interest.

msn hugely important to me.

*= SERPS do show relevant sites at the top in my sectors.

No change to my sites at all.
All still number one for all their important terms.
The best serps of all the major SE's in fact.
Still no traffic though!

Sadly in my area people only use Google, a real shame because their stranglehold needs breaking

>>minor shakeup

i only watch a couple of serps and i'm very familiar with them,
in the top 20 results the sites/pages stayed largely the same just shuffled around a bit.

... but a shift of even a couple of places can have a difference in traffic!

but i've noticed these minor tweaks several times in the last month.

Our main keywords have held their positioning but saw a huge drop in two and three keywords for sub pages.

MSN needs to overhaul.
