My site is not on MSN
I have noticed that google spiders my site regularly like every other day or so, however, yahoo has not updated my info since 4/23 according to the cached site. And MSN does not appear to even know I exist. Is there something I am missing?
The current iteration of MSN Search uses indexes generated by Yahoo. Since MSN applies its own rules to generate SERPs from the Yahoo-supplied index, results may not be the same for the same search term, but you should be somewhere in there. In theory anyway. Yahoo's inherent buggyness seems to be magnified when their indexes are used for MSN Search.
Microsoft is in the process of building its own index which you can see on their technology preview page. That is still a small index, however.
aye I am on the new MSN search engine.
Putting www.fab-equipment.com brings up my website so I can review the cache in google and yahoo. msn however does not show whatsoever.
Fortunately, I have been generating the amount of traffic comfortable to me via just Google.
Hate to say but Yahoo must have a LONG way to go if they are going to catch up with google just comparing my own data.
The only way I can find you in MSN is to search on fab-equipment.com. The page is there, but only one of them.
Ive started appearing in Yahoo and MSN searches almost simaltaneously this weekend. Although the search results are rather sporadic and jumping all over the rankings. Between them they are only giving about 2% of the traffic to my site at the moment with Google sending the rest.
Im gonna largerly ignore these search engines until they settel down a little i think
