New MSN

    Does anybody already have a CLEAR idea of what MSN appreciates the most, because I'm soon going to be in trouble when the beta version becomes the actual.
    I know most of you are looking forward to the new version I am not! :mad:
    I hope it's the description that I don't even bother using anymore and little else, any hints?

    When I tweaked my on-page optimization my rankings at MSN started to climb. I guess they are like Yahoo and like to see you work on your site.

    Thank you, fryman!

    Still, there's definetely more and I hope someone has something to add.

    I am actually building my sites, so there are frequent changes, still, beta MSN doesn't like them, the actual MSN yes! :(

    yeah, it appears that the MSN beta is a combo of Yahoo on-page and anchor text. Wonder how they decided to do that? :rolleyes:

    The new MSN rewards agressive SEO too much IMO. One of our *link pages* ranks number one for "Clothes", if you can believe that!

    I use heavy H1 fonts and alot of internal hyperlinks to my own pages (with css it doesn't look bad, H1 is made to look just a bit bigger than normal bold).. lots of on-page SEO, then thousands of links are set up using php code (rotating anchors) from big directory type web-sites. I always target dozens of small phrases.. the word "clothes" was coming in them all. MSN gave us credit, I guess.

    Perhaps by crawling Google for the anchor text weight, recording Google's results, then making their own (or crawling Yahoo) for the onpage stuff? :p :p

    My experience leads me to believe that MSN Beta favors backlinks. The site I referrence is "SalesPractice" and the term is "Sales Training."

    Yeah... I'm seeing backlinks as being very important... not so much on page stuff though. Also, from what I'm seeing they've switched over already. Maybe a regional thing though.

    I wonder if all of California converted to it. It still says "beta" here in Sacramento, but has converted. I was in SF today and it was converted as well.

    I'm in the midwest and seeing beta results for both IE and Firefox (over the weekend I would just see beta results when using Firefox).

    Looks good!

    And to chime in on what seems to work best, I agree with the above that standard SEO seems to help a great deal. Keep you pages simple! That is always my rule of thumb!!!

    Do your IBL anchors include 'sales forums' and 'sales books' ? because you rank quite well for those too.. or do you feel you have more volume than your immediate competitors ?

    Cheers,
