I’ve been getting IM’s all day about the new(ish) MSN SERPS. Some really fugly looking results. Rather than expound on this too much let’s just get to the screenshots…
I hope the SEO at cars.com got a raise today. Check out page 1 for cars:
Moving on to the spam free world of Texas Hold Em:
San Antonio? That’s triggered just by having Texas in the search phrase? oops. Personally I like Fort Worth better…
Subdomains Hell. Blog Spam is alive and well. How many of those root domains do you recognize?
Now I can’t simply bash on MSN, the little engine that could, for bad results and not give at least a nod to some serious progress in other areas. I’ve seen massive improvements in the depth of crawl on many sites I monitor. The MSN index is growing a decent rate finally.
And in their defense about the blog spam – note even Google has a real handle on it yet tho they have culled out many of the free subdomain sites. Maybe if MSN asks nicely Google will give them the black list…nah
