Thanks for the advice everyone.
I have identified the duplicate sites being indexed by MSN. They appear to have been
The htaccess files now reflect that all are permanently redirected to DVD-and-Media.com my main site.
I suppose I am just waiting for MSN to crawl the sites and find the main site now? Or do you think I have been banned and can't get back in whatever?
Would it be worth using one of these EXPRESS SUBMIT services to get the re-indexing of the site or do I have to email MSN and cross my fingers?
The contest gives away microsoft products and came through from my Live site account so I figure they are connected to MSN. I'm grasping at straws here as to why I was completely gone 8 months ago on local searches and back on page 1 without having done anything other than join this stuff. If you look further into those links they will take you to a forum site called StartupNation.com for entrepenuers and seems to also be connected to Microsoft.
Is it worth using the express submit services? If so which is the most cost effective but actually works??
I still cant work out why I havent been indexed on MSN yet ...
I got an email from Microsoft Live about a year ago offering me a free website and hosting so I took them up on it.
Office Cleaning Designed for your business
Yes that is in response to the Live question and it appears that the agreement for having the free site is that they host it and periodically send you emails about 'added' features beyond the basic that you can add on for a fee.
I had been toying with a different site idea for years with a couple of business peers in other regions and since it was free, we thought, what the heck, so we have it and hasn't cost us a dime yet.
Should it turn into a requirement for some form of payment we will re-evaluate it's benefit and go from there.
I'm confused here Ken. Are you saying MSN hosts lk-clean.com for free? Or is it some other site? (BTW, I voted for your site on page 5).
I'm still wondering if you can only have one of these Live Site accounts if they host your site.
