    My traffic from live.com increased a month ago (maybe around 20%).
    Now I'm getting aprox. 1K unique visitors per day.

    Live has recently done an update that's why some get more traffic and some less.

    Ya some sites droped in msn awhile back about that same time.
    Some of mine droped badly but my new sites are comming along pretty good now..
    Msn definatly changed some things awhile back good for some bad for others..
    I made a post about the changes that i had noticed and my theroys behind it over here

    Sense then my older sites have slowly came back up a little and my newer sites are doing very well.. like 90% of my traffic comes from msn always has.. i dont know why google and yahoo dont like me.. :D

    Also here.. http://blogs.msdn.com/livesearch/archive/2007/10.aspx .. is fact about msn.

    With Microsoft acquisition of some websites, apparently there is some positive changes. Good for all.

    I'd welcome some real competition to Google. Let's hope Live keeps improving...

    hope it increases though

    I would take a closer look at the referrals from live.com. I've noticed something similar, but when I look at the logs, I see this:
    #grep live.com access-log
    65.55.165.13 - - [13/Nov/2007:10:43:20 -0500] "GET /forum/index.php?action=unread;board=12.0 HTTP/1.0" 200 13753 "http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=login&mrt=en-us&FORM=LIVSOP" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.2; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)"
    65.55.165.38 - - [13/Nov/2007:13:32:25 -0500] "GET /forum/index.php?action=help;page=pm HTTP/1.0" 200 24056 "http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=personal&mrt=en-us&FORM=LIVSOP" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.2; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)"

    Note that the IP address is in the proximity of the MSN spiders. Each one of these requests looks like a complete hit from a normal browser - loads images, css, etc.

    I've been watching this for a few weeks and what appears to be happening is that MSN is performing *full* page view for *each* keyword that is associated with the site, in such a way that the keyword looks like it's in the top results. It's been happening on my sites for a few weeks, though it's winding down today.

    I suspect the MSN is trying to clean up results by performing some kind of intelligent analysis of keyword referrals in a way that makes sure they are not being duped by SEO "tricks".

    That's my theory anyway.
