18. listopadu 2008 8:40Hey, i have a question/suggestion. I am not sure if its possible or not or maybe i just dont know how....
Is there a way to know how msn tools reads sitemaps.
It MSN doesnt provide any info on how they read sitemap. (or maybe i just dont know, if thats the case than sorry)
Did it find any errors or how many links does it see in the sitemap.
We have updated sitemap for our www.WorldsMostUnique.com website quite a few times. At first we had some issues of how to set up our site map. Google found those problems right away and MSN well, i am not sure what version of sitemap does msn see and when was it last updated.
All i am trying to say that it would be nicer to show more info on sitemaps...

Thanks for the suggestion. Live Search, Google and Yahoo all share the same sitemap protocols, so what works on one works on them all. Also, webmaster tools will tell you if there were any crawl errors.

Hi Brett....total new to webmaster protocol so please excuse my ignorance (or should I say lack of knowledge). You say above that Live Search, Google, and Yahoo all use the same protocol when it comes to sitemaps........I have adjusted a new sitemap for www.adultclixonline.com (not a porn site, not blocked).....the msn bot has found the site map, (as have Google and Yahoo), however MSN has only main page indexed, and the other two have indexed all of them (only 9 or 10 all up). There isnt anything as far as any errors go that I'm aware of with the bot. Its only a new site, but I dont anticipate waiting months for possibly no results when the online world changes so quickly, and as I said, the other two have them pretty much all indexed already. Also...in the webmaster tools section with keyword checker.....I am guessing it only works on one word at a time as I try single words with results, but if I use 2 or three words (that came up on their own) and nothing comes up...wouldn't it be better to allow multiple keywords?
Thanks in advance...sorry for hightailing the thread..........
ps Brett...are you the only one that works there? lol

Update to the last....noticed that when I log into my webmasters account that MSN now has no info for my website....not showing any details as far as indexed pages go...so I dont know whats going on.
