    It appears as MSN switched to the new version (I'm in Boston, Ma) and I am in trouble!
    So what would you do if you were in my position?
    (good with the old, bad in the new) :(

    I haven't seen a full switch. I heard they're intermittently rotation in some searches, but I'm in Boston too and am still getting old MSN results.

    Jonah, it's funny, I am still seeing the new version here (South).

    Resalebroker I guess you're right, I'm not doing very well with Google and that's why I'm prob not doing well with Google.
    I'll have to focus on that part of SEOing...

    It sounds as it's about to be the new official MSN search engine all over, and possibly the next challenge for Yahoo (too early for mighty Google)...

    Another day with MSN new (maybe I'll start calling as that because the beta testing is over? More or less?!?) in Boston.
    I suppose we can get ready for full and definite coverage of the US at least.
    Anything from elsewhere in the world?

    I've got sites up and down in it, but i think the results quality in the places I'm targeting is outstanding. It is really good to see another search engine in town.

    It seems to be up and live in Las Vegas as well right now. I have to love the real estate rankings it is offering. It went live here in Las vegas around 10 am this morning. Checking around 6:30 pst MSN beta results are still showing on the regular search for msn.com.

    Well it would appear that MSN is rockin in WI. I saw one site that had around 100 + backlinks go up to over 9000 back links. I am wondering if all of this is going to settle out at some point? In any event it would appear that every site we have listed in MSN has an overwhelming increase in back links.
