I am presently working on a site which has 12600 pages indexed in Google and 9400 pages indexed in Yahoo. But when it comes to MSN search engine there are only 15 pages indexed for this site.
What may be the possible reasons for this exclusion by MSN? What measures can be taken for increasing the number of pages indexed by MSN? Also the backlink count in MSN is pretty high(6594 links).
I would check to see how many pages google has indexed but does not show due to similar results.
You know, where google says, "In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries very similar to the 1 already displayed.
If you like, you can repeat the search with the omitted results included."
This is usually due to similar content, title, description etc.
If you send me a sticky email I will take a look.
Google's problem is indexing too many, msn just too less.
Are they just different flavors of forms so that a person who searches for "large yellow widget with pink polka-dots" is guaranteed to find something? Or is there some other explanation -- other than "it's just spam."
MSNDude: It's great to see how active you are here and I appreciate it when you help. Since there are a few people here who are having the same problem, do you have an explaination? Or better yet, do you have any advice for us getting the rest of the pages indexed again?
Are the MSN results now from Live.com's index? Could that be it? If so, then what should we do?
It's just weird that MSN would only have a few of the pages indexed for any site. Usually it's all or nothing.
Any advice would help.
