I’ve been having some growing problems with this site. With the help of a person way smarter than me, we’re trying to solve them. In the meantime, I thank you for your patience.
While completing some test searches related to another issue, I noticed something bizarre: this site isn’t indexed properly by MSN Search. If you say, search for my name, you won’t find my site. In Yahoo and Google, my site is (rightfully, I think) the first result.
I tried another test, searching for a phrase for which I happen to be highly ranked: “textual tattoos”:
What gives? When I use MSN to search my site exclusively, and enter no search terms, I only get 73 results. This suggests that MSN knows about a little of my site, but not the whole shebang. I usually use MT or Google to search my own site, so I’m not sure if this is a temporary glitch or a longterm issue.
I note, with some irony, that I’m lucky enough to be invited to Search Champs v4 down with the MSN Search team later this month. Maybe I can just slip into an unoccupied cubicle and manually add my pages to the database?
