Hi everyone,
i really need your help.
Something happened to one of the sites i do SEO for on msn.com.
since mid october the site has dropped down significantly in major keywords and i saw that less pages were indexed. today i noticed that the URL of the site is not indexed any longer!
Nothing "bad" was done, and on google.com and yahoo.com everything is improving.
other sites i do seo remained the same with msn.com.
i suspect this has something to do with the fact that the webmaster has moved the site from one hosting to another and now we have our own dedicated server. could this effect in anyway msn's results?
could there be something in the server that is defined wrong and that prevents the msnbot from crawling?
i am VERY confused and devistated- can any1 help me out with this one?

Here's what turns up for homepage redirected non-www to www for as far back as I can remember. The first several pages returned are like this, with the homepage way on the 2nd page:

This is a version of http://www.example.com/subdirectory/pagename.html as it looked when our crawler examined the site on 12/17/2006. The page you see below is the version in our index that was used to rank this page in the results to your recent query. This is not necessarily the most recent version of the page - to see the most recent version of this page, visit the page on the web.

Moved Permanently
The document has moved here.


This site used to do fine just as it is, but started having problems when it was moved because another site of mine on that server got hacked.

So here's yet another with a problem with the combo of an IP change and 301's.

i also added a redirect to my .htaccess and my site suddenly disappeared.

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} .
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ [%{HTTP_HOST}...] [R,L]

My site has been banned from MSN as well. I have no redirects at all. I have one site. I don't do any reciprocal linking, but I have purchased some links and added myself to some directories. I am lost and confused on how rememdy this?

Someone posted that they contacted MSN and received word back from them? Is this true and if so, does anyone know how/where to do this?

"So here's yet another with a problem with the combo of an IP change and 301's."

While that may improve the chances of MSN screwing up, this same message appears for domains that have been on the same IP for years.

IMO, the 301 is the key. MSN just doesn't handle them well.

I had to do a 301 redirect on my site 2 months ago to change its structure due to google duplicate content problems.
Seems to have fixed my google problem, but my site disappered from MSN almost immediatley.

There is your problem.
You need relavant reciprocal links, but not purchased or from link farms.
