Have you looked closely at their results? I wouldn't be surprised if they give up on search or buy someone that knows how to do it. If I were leading the charge I'd think about buying Ask.com.
Thats interesting and may account for some sites i know that dont feature. What would you do in that circumstance? im certainly reluctant to advise the 301 is removed, do you know an alternative method that has helped?
Thanks in advance
A very poor search experience, still loads of sites missing from its index, still cant fully index a site, they have filtered all the good sites out and left all the junk behind.
They dont give a fig about webmasters, done nothing to sort out the inurl facility etc, etc.
Its been like this ages now and it doesnt look like its going to change.
I recall these problems being outlined to msn dude some two years ago and i cant see any improvements so perhaps they have just given up on it.
Do they still have a team working on improving the search facility or have they moved onto other msn projects?
Spider still visits the site regularly, though.
Can't think of anything I did wrong, especially since I haven't really changed much in years and it was always fine.
Does anybody have any idea how to contact them for reinclusion?
As long as google is more important than MSN, I'd leave the 301 on any domain, which means some domains will get zero MSN traffic.
Ahhh, so that's what's going on! I have a redirect in place from www to non-www and for some reason I just can't seem to get my site indexed by MSN anymmore. MSN Live brings in 0.2% of traffic now. Google and Yahoo are both fine. I guess then that there's no point to writing MSN anymore asking them to remove the penalty I though they had on my site
Having suffered as many others during many months with the same problems (but not a single one with G and Y) as written in this and other threads, also mailed to MSN I have started the last effort to get indexed by msnbot:
Uploaded the web to a new domain, excluded all other bots, removed 301s, ... and other recommendations!
I will wait for 1 month and give notice!
P.S. A friend at Gates Company told me 2 years ago MSN will never succeed!
