Go to [webmaster.live.com...] and sign up. You can post there where MSNLive Team actually responds to problems.
The MORE who post about this problem the better. Perhaps they'll TAKE NOTICE.
Many of us lost our sites in October after they launched the new Algo. Our sites are fine...it's the Algo with bugs to work out. I would not change anything on my site right now.
Suggest you get your site validated with their webmastertools, POST YOUR PROBLEM and keep up with those posts. You can also submit your site for manual review if you like.
There are plenty of us with the same problem, so POST yours to get their attention.

One of my two sites has completely vanished from live.com. Before I signed up for their "webmaster tools" a couple of weeks ago, at least I had one page in their index, now I have zero.
Google SERPs show approx. 37 urls in their index and Yahoo! shows 39 urls for the same site - and of course live/MSN 0.
I'm not even sure that I want to have my sites indexed in such a poor SE as live/MSN - I don't want to waste much more time on live/MSN than I've allready have.
Do you by any chance know how I close my live/MSN webmasters account for good?
It's disappointing that we didn't ever see the three horse race fulfill its promise.

Go to msn webmastertools...join and post there also.
More the better...they know they have a problem and from what I hear, it's being worked on.
I had a top engineer at MS look at my site...he found absolutely nothing wrong, and didn't have an answer as to why it wasn't in the serps.
I would change nothing on my site...all we can do is wait.
Tell you what...my site is 2 years old, had plenty of msn traffic until last year. No google traffic at all...I was so busy trying to chase MSN serps, ie: changing pages often, changing KW density, etc. that Google wouldn't even hardly index my site. (I was not aware that Google filters "quick" changes)
After October 1 MSN Algo update, I STOPPED changing anything on my pages. Guess what, Google has picked me up and is indexing pages like crazy and more than replaced my old MSN traffic.
Build you Google traffic and let MSN solve it's problems.
I put a MSN sitemap on one 3 yr. old site over a month ago, managed to get the homepage indexed, but then when I search for 'the site.com' my site doesn't appear at all. )
