MSN Search Sooner than Expected!

SEATTLE, March 19 (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. said on Friday that a new engine for its MSN Search service will start up in July, another step in its plan to challenge Google Inc.'s pole position as the Web's top search destination.

Advertising on the Upcoming MSN Search

Instead of including paid listings within search results, which critics say results in misleading search results, MSN said it will display paid listings separately at the top and to the right of search results generated by its search engine.

Redetzki said MSN will list three paid listings at the top of every search result, of which at least two will be advertisements sold directly by MSN.

You can see how MSN will be displaying search results at MSN Search Beta. People have been discussing the new MSN search at WMW.

I dont realy believe to MSN search any more, My web site was on first page in MSN search, and somehow it was removed. I can't even find it on last pages of this search.
