I have been recieveing good MSN traffic for some years now. I have also had much traffic from other major search engines which I will not mention the name of as that would just be rude in an MSN forum.

Now recetly having lost 100% of other traffic for no good reason, 9000 back links and all unique content NOTHING copied (in fact I hate spammers more than most because its is me they are copying in many cases).

Now since that happened I have been looking at percentages of traffic and what they are doing in my server logs.

% increase in sales per visit
% increase in page requests per visit
% increase in visits over 20 mins time spent on the site

Does any one else have any information that supports my claim that MSN referals buy more or it is just MSN customers love my site more than others did?

I'm constantly amazed at how few sales I make on MSN. I can be at the top for every search term for months and get a handful of bookings. Completely the opposite experience.

Opposite for me as well. Wake me up when it's even close.

Google has always been last for page views and time on-site for me; I think it's simply because Google visitors are more intelligent, efficient and impatient. They "GIT-R-DONE" and move on.

MSN has been converting well both paid and natural for us since the relaunch. Not sure why, but I know it to be so.
