Doctor: Heal Thyself – SEO Blog Freshbot Vanishes from Microsoft Search Live

We checked our site on MSN and noticed that lo and behold the freshbot had been dropped as well.

What irony! The utter horror! :)

To be a search engine optimization practitioner and lose rankings is just awful. Well, probably not really all that bad.

Well honestly, MSN is one of the weakest search engines around behind the mighty Google. Yahoo is down there pretty low, but at least they can keep the freshbot in their index. Our reference is hitwise for search engine leadership.

  1. We honestly, MSN is one of the weakest search engines around behind the mighty Google and sometimes bright Yahoo. So it is no wonder why we did not miss the trickle of traffic we had previously received in the past from MSN.

  2. We are on the case. At first we thought that we might have been blocking the MSN robot (i.e. msnbot) somehow. Nope.

    Then we checked the msnbot ip addresses to see if we had somehow blocked them. Nope.

    Then we searched the net and found out that many, many webmasters are complaining of the same thing.
