Why less of my pages are listed on msn search?

50.000 pages listed on google , 17.000 on yahoo and only 1400 on msn search.

I'm I doing something wrong?

thanks in advance for your help

Its not you, its MSN. I am in the same boat. 40,000 + pages indexed in Google, 200 pages indexed in MSN. I am not too concerned, and the word is they will be tweaking things this summer so hopefully they will get things right.

One of the sites we work on is going down in pages listed in MSN.

It never had that many about 2100 listed at one point but more recently it fell from 1200 to about 800 and during the last week went to about 500 odd.

Is this some sort of msn penulty? do you think? if so what action should be taken - sites fine in Yahoo and google

We're in the same boat: 64,000 pages indexed on Google, 108,000 on Yahoo, and only 1,400 on MSN.

It doesn't appear to be a crawling issue -- MSNBot has crawled 8,000 URLs in the last 36 hours -- but only our top-level pages and those with inbound links from other sites seem to be showing up in the MSN SERPs.

We've never had many MSN links. 20k+ google, 40k+ yahoo, 208 MSN

We've never gained or lost any in the last 2-3 years and get very very little traffic from MSN.

Am I offering the wrong brand of spider food?
