I have got the code right and have done this hundreads of times before and so I can say the submission page is broken!
Please fix it MSN along with the crawling problems highlighted in my other thread
"Please enter a valid URL with the format: http://www.example.com/"
So it was broken before I became a member and was broken afterwards as well. Perhaps it is working only intermittently?
MSN a multibillion $ organisation who when they have a beta for a search engine want us the webmasters to give them feedback and help them set it up (so they can make more money).
Howvever, then they dont give us a response when we pose simple questions here like why is your submission page not working?
Come on MSNDude its just good manners and doesnt reveal any secret intellectual property or algorithmn information.
and they want to rival Google
Maybe its a crude way to stop spam? but it already requires a human to retype the code and I only want to submit a handful at a time so I do believe its broken.
I also repeat that for new sites only home pages seem to get crawled and indexed. Whereas my older sites appear to get completely spidered regularly ok.
Its amazing we can find out what Presidents allegedly got up to in private the Oval office but the search engines still remain mysteries!
If they have been banned and you try to do a "re-inclusion" then I think you are getting stopped by the gate now! they are telling you one thing ("Wrong URL or whatever..." but it's actually a "Wrong type of site.. we don't want your site!"
Here is my conspiracy theory.
A few months ago I came on here and posted that MSN was only indexing hoem pages on brand new sites with no apparent full crawl (certainly not as it used to)
I then posted that to speed things up people should just manually submit all web pages for a site as the full crawl by msnbot seems to have been suspended for a while.
Hey presto a week or so later it now seems impossible to submit more than one or two pages at a time before the submission page stops working properly.
Somehow I dont feel like posting helpful tips in public any more as it seems msndude reads them to use against us!
