I have lost most of my listings but will wait for a few days to see just were it goes as I feel this just started and the update hasn't had a chance to work.
I was just about to post yesterday how close MSN and Google were coming up in certian sectors I compared them to.
thanks for that update on the new crawler
The serps that microsoft is putting out really do look much much better than I have ever seen them.
I also don't usually check the serps, I let analytics tell me if I'm improving or falling behind.
That being said I'm seeing something new after taking a look just now and I don't like it.
example.com.pk <---- india ranks 4th in the US because of keyword in uri?
having the uri be the keyword is getting MORE important but keyword + a couple of letters doesn't seem to get the same boost.
I just feel I want my site to be in the top pages of MSN just to be there as one day you may go poof in Google then what you will be glad MSN is sending ya the traffic(as small as it may be) it just may keep you from going under.
As I said there looks to be 2 different serps being displayed one is real doggy the other is in my opinion much better than I have seen before in a bunch of secors I have looked in. It is as close to Googles results as I have ever seen.
The doggy one is displaying all the examples I have seen from the above post.
I agree that I pay little attention to the 'lil engine that could.
More like the big engine that couldn't. It seems most of the traffic I get from MSN are those spammy bots using fake referrers. I really wished I was more diversified and had tangible traffic from MSN, but it the world of search engines, it's just Google and Yahoo! for me. One of my site went from say (just an example) 100 pages to 1000 pages in the course of 1 year, yet still have the same 20 odd visits a day by MSN after all this time.
