Microsoft is holding a three-hour “Searchification” event at its Silicon Valley campus on September 26 that seems like it will be the launch pad for the next version of Microsoft’s Live Search service.
Microsoft is planning to do a Search refresh every spring and fall, according to Search chief Satya Nadella.
Let's hope this will be a positive move for all concerned.
the way the article reads Live 2.0 is more about user customization than SERPs
Refresh a few times and see if you get a link for your personalized location.
The sole reason that I advertise on MSN Adcenter is for low-cost bidding resulting in great ROI - in most cases better than advertising on Yahoo and Google. While MSN's volume may be just fractions of the big 2, it's great to know that I can depend on great ROI performance.
The more advertisers that flock to buy keywords on MSN Adcenter, the quicker MSN will lose that leverage. So now you have a subpar search engine with just average ROI and low volume - no reason to advertise on. Hopefully this change peaks end-users' interests, not just advertisers.
Again, this is said purely from a PPC point of view.
let's hope indexing of new pages is done in a timely manner, relevancy is MUCH improved...
I agree with a capital A. Microsoft search returns incredibly poor results for a major SE. They really have to reexamine their algorithm unless they are deliberately trying to get people to click on ads because that is the only sense one can make of it. All the old well established authority sites are seldom found in the top twenty for several phrases I have watched for a few years.
