MSN Search out of Beta?, AOL Search Revival, SEO Automation

MSN Search Out of Beta:
Some people are seeing it flip back and forth, but I have been seeing the Beta results at the main site.

Yeah I first noticed the results out of Beta and into the main MSN search this AM - around 8AM or so... Posted about it here - . Had been seeing evidence of a small-scale switchover for a couple of days beforehand...
