MSN Search Update

    MSN is moving ahead with the search engine, they are going to use their own results later this year, at this time they are giving the site a new look, but will continue to use Yahoo results.

    The latest is in the article below.

    i hope that they use their results soon.... they crawled 200,000 of my pages in may, so that will hopefully be a boost in traffic, and it still crawls main category pages on my site on the regular bases, i have no traffic from yahoo, so let's go MSN....

    MSN sends me little traffic right now- even though I'm top 5 for all of my terms.. they will need to really get a move on.

    It's actually live on MSN.

    Didn't treat me right - none of my sites/keywords that perform well on google or yahoo are performing on MSN. :(

    Will have to research in the coming weeks and figure out why not!

    At least for me, http://techpreview.search.msn.com/ craps out under Netscape, but works fine under IE - I especially like the #1 result for the longest car as I see they are displaying "funky" characters in title tags. I also see that they have finally addressed the stripping of the trailing "/" from URL's with pathname components - no more redirects reported by your web server! ;-)

    SB, they should just rename the SE to the Snitch Baby Search Engine, we only pull results from JR Wrestling. More useful for Snitch Baby everyday. :eek:

    Shit those results are worse than the traffic redirection study I published on Zeezo and Google's bias toward them.

    I think I am going to start a CT site on "Snitch Baby and Softie", could be the best thing since popcorn was invented. :cool:

    AC,

    The reason they've removed my competition from their engine is because they already spend more in advertising in one month than I do in 10 years. Might as well make the people who will pay spend the money ;)

    Well here is another article of interest on the M$ search engine and how it affects Yahoo and Ask.com

    Their stocks were sold off a few points when this story broke.

    Softie is going to introduce a version of hard drive search before Longhorn is released, they claim it will be able to search Email and all local files.

    Very interesting development as hard drive search is a hot area right now, the best software I have seen so far for hard drive search is listed below.

    www.diskmeta.com it is a free download and can be used offline to search your hard drive, it gives search results back from your hard drive files like a search result page.

    The story on the M$ version of the above is in the following link

    By what your post said they did add the new stuff to MSNsearch, by what your link says they DID NOT DO IT YET.

    They are still using Yahoo results, do a search on Yahoo and the same search on MSN, that will tell you the story. :D

    i just wanted to make sure i understand that the "new" search that msn is boasting isn't the "new search that will be better than google to be released in the future" search they have been boasting.
