View Full Version : Dropped from MSN

11-10-2003, 10:43 AM
Strange thing has happened seemingly overnight. Since launching my site, I've been listed in MSN. Now, I have seemingly dropped completely out of their search results. Used to be I could type in "cinema eye" and I would be in first place. Now I'm seemingly not listed at all. Any ideas what might be going on here? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've seen this too.

MSN seems to be using Looksmart less -- on some searches they're still there, on others they are not.

MSN announced that they will be dropping Looksmart entirely in January, maybe this is just a precursor of that move.

On the other hand it must just be a temporary bug.

Perhaps they are testing their in-house search engine?

I am constantly getting visits from the MSN robot.

No, the results are still definitely Inktomi.

Glad of that, Inktomi have been visiting me quite a lot recently.

It still seems weird that I've totally dropped out of their results. But I guess when it comes to search engines, patience is the name of the game.
