I knew it thats going to happen. The layout is same now, but search algorithms are reversed.

Yep, you're right....things are back to the pre-debacle style rankings.

not a complete reversal. there have been some changes and most descriptions taken from DMOZ. The results are MUCH better than the circus that past two days.

Correct, this isn't a rollback. While there is improvement, it is still a mess. When will Microsoft figure out they can't do search and just throw in the towel? No one uses MSN anyway.

Bite your tongue! I have a site that gets 90% of its traffic from MSN and it earns me a nice income every month. This recent screw-up has cost me big. Went from page 1 to page 6. Hope it returns soon.

The point is, if you had the same rankings in Google or Yahoo! your income would be substantially higher than what it is now. The CTR in organic listings is dismal to say the least. I am thrilled to hear you are monetizing your site with MSN traffic - it is just if their organic listings were better, your CTR would be three times what it is now.

Not for lack of trying, friend. Everyone would love to have top Yahoo and Google rankings to go along with MSN, but it eludes me. So I hope for a return of the MSN ranking I've enjoyed for over a year. Hope springs eternal.
