Any speculations about the new MSN search? When it's going live, etc..?

All I know is that the MSNbots have been bombing my sites like crazy recently. It reads 3 pages a second.

My bet is by the end of Summer, the first version will be live.

my bet alpha testing will start almost immediately, beta tests very soon, within a few weeks, otherwise there would be no point in this extremely agressive spidering, msnbot has been chugging along a few pages here and there for months, now it's started for real, why would you create an index of pages if you aren't going to use them?, my guess is middle of summer, maybe earlier, it's not like google has set the bar very high re relevant quality results so it won't have to be perfect on first gold release, just ok.

It's been spidering like crazy, but nothing is in the MSN index (other than my main page) - is that normal?

Sasha, currently MSN is using the Yahoo Index, with a shuffling of the Serps. The New MSN Search has not yet been put out.
