Its been 2 weeks since I launched my new site, Google & Yahoo have indexed almost all of my pages, but MSN have not even indexed the main page.
What can be wrong? Is it me or is it MSN Search?

I have good quality backlinks.

Has the MSN Bot been by your site?

MSN bot visits my website daily. Hits and bandwidth are almost equivalent to GoogleBots.

I don't understand If it is crawling all around my website and consuming bandwidth then why not list them in index. MSN bot last visited a few hours before.

MSN seems to be broken at the moment, we re-launched a site a month ago (PR7) and MSN has managed to index just 1% of pages, Google has managed 86%. MSN spidering activity is almost as frequent as Google but updating their index in a real issue, looks like a waiting game to me.

Sounds like MSN issues are based on too many pages and no CLUE how to tell if they are good or not. They should be looking in to the whole "trust rank" algo that googley has.

Then again does MSN have enough data to figure it all out? Maybe MSN should buy a web stats company like what google has done and try to get more data to help them figure out what to do!

So yeah - Just need to sit tight and see what msn does.

MSN should hire me for my ideas. heh.
