You've killed MSN again Aaron

'This site is temporarily unavailable, please check back soon.'

...which makes the 'Didn't get the results you expected? Help us improve.' link highly ironic :)

What can I say, #1 position for all my target keywords. I like beta msn search! :)

I'm a big fan of the MSN results too - sure partly b/c my sites are doing well, but more importantly b/c I really like the quality of the search results. They seem to have at least to some degree cut down on the ruling of directory sites in the SERPs... Also seem to have a nice balance between on and off page factors. Plus, the sliders should be fun to play with for the next few weeks... :)

The backlink function on the new MSN search engine seems to be working great too. The backlink function in Google has never been very reliable, offering only a small portion of them. MSN seems to be showing all backlinks.

Anybody has any comments about how the MSN beta is handling 301 and 302 redirects?

Thanks,
Mario.
