    CHECK THAT again. When my co-worker goes to MSN.com he gets the old layout and the old engine.

    Maybe it's in my cookies from before....? Anyone else?

    For clarity, at msn.com I get the new engine and I get a new layout for MSN.com. My co-worker gets the old layout and the old engine.

    Common practise. Google does that as well, test new stuff in several areas.

    You're fast donna...I must have added the site to my post the same time you were replying.

    Nice scoop anyway.

    I've seen (and reported on seochat) several hits to my sites coming from search.msn.com in keywords that I rank well in on beta and not on the live version. I would agree that this seems to be a limited roll out, but my fingers are crossed that they release it full scale soon!

    I'm not sure how much Top 50 will help you (which really means #45, otherwise you would have said top 40, etc).

    I believe they are still aiming for First Quarter 2005

    Nah, top 50 means nothing - but it indicates that you're doing something right but still have some more work to do ;)

    I asked a few guys at the MSN Booth (SES Expo) when they were coming out of beta. They of course said they couldn't really say, but it was really really soon.

    I talked to them today also - they dont want to commit to a date - they have 5 billion pages indexed - but then said google just increased to 8 billion pages, they have a lil catching up to do now.

    They did say early 2005 - What did you think of the show goodgirl?

    I wanted to stop by there today and ask if it was really soon yet, but didn't have time.

    MSN did have the biggest booth.

    It is funny, last year they were there. Google was, but nobody at the Google booth all day long. They just had a booth with there name on it. This year MSN is there, they have the biggest booth and about 10 reps there, Google actually had people servicing their booth and was giving stuff away this year.

    It was a little bigger then last year exhibit wise. They said it was a bigger show, but I thought there was less people this year. Maybe that is because last year was in smaller areas.

    It is good to go to and get to actually talk to people face to face.

    I found it to pretty much be a waste of time - the expo anyway - I didnt go to any seminars. But, I got enough T Shirts and a decent lunch - so that balanced out my parking fees :)

    Most of the exhibitors that were there really seemed to be more for large companies who dont do any of their own web work, not much there for little guys like me.

    This is true, and most of the conference is for someone new to either organic or paid.

    I'm still seeing the old search as well, but they still might be shooting for a Jan 1 release date. :)
