MSN is making great strides in the quality of its SERP's and it appears to me that they are indeed listening to what webmasters are telling them!
Thank you for MSN Microsoft!
they jumped back up there this morning
Everything back to normal here this morning also..
Just driving me nuts ..first Y and then MSN
And you cant talk to anyone.. Cant find a support address for MSN and then everyone here crawls into a corner whenever you ask simple question..
No one has ever had to contact MSN from here?
Which I'd still could use .. whatever happened to MSNdude.?
Ok I've vented and feel better ;)
This was the only time I had to contact MSN, but they were great help.
The email address I used was firstname.lastname@example.org
How can search engine can be so blind even with lots of reports to this.
That example you give is quite similar to what's happening in the searches 1 of my sites used to be on top 5, and now there's pages and pages full of blogs with different templates but exact same content, and they even have a list of keywords on H1 right there at the footer of the blog... so, isn't that spam?
Now my site is back in, all pages listed, and rankings where they were. I did not do anything different to my site. Weirdly enough, MSN is listing something like 2500+ pages for my site, when it is really less than 20% of that and is static html. I am assuming this means much more shifting is in the future. I don't expect my site to even stay in MSN, to be honest, the way things have gone. If it does, great. If not, there is nothing I can do about it.
This experience with MSN since summer taught me that the whole SE thing is totally capricious and nonsensical. I hate the way my business is at the mercy of this senselessness. I decided that it was best to diversify how I get the word out about my site, to pay to get included in focused listings targeted to particular grouops, to buy AdWords for content, to buy ads in magazines, to have a newsletter, to do mail catalogs, to write a book focused on my audience, the whole nine yards. It is hard enough to be in business and try to anticipate market changes and such without having to be at the mercy of SEs that do things in such an occult way.
