I dissapeared off MSN Live and have not got back on. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I started my website back in December, I noticed MSN indexed me the fastest, by the end of January they had 16 of my pages in the index.

    Sometime in February all my pages dissapeared, I manualy submitted my homepage and that is still there, but no other pages are being crawled. I have submitted a sitemap and verified it, and I am not Blocking MSN and have not been banned, I can see MSN Bot visiting my site but nothing is ever put up on the search engine. I have contacted MSN support and they dont know why its happening they say it all looks fine.

    Is anyone else having simular issues? Was there a problem with MSN back in January that lost a lot of information or something.

    My website is http://planetarybargains.com

  • Hi PBScott,

    If you run a "site:http://planetarybargains.com/" in the search box, you will find that your home page is in our index. Unfortunately, you are ranking extremely low. I suggest reading our FAQs located at the top of the crawling and ranking forums. I also noticed your site is not canonicalized. Canonicalizing your site can help increase your rank. If you don't know how to do this, I suggest reading our blog post: http://blogs.msdn.com/webmaster/archive/2009/01/19/optimizing-your-very-large-site-for-search-part-1.aspx.

    Good luck!

  • Hi brett
    I come back in the forum because my site disappear completely from msn results and when i do "site:http://anuo.be/" Live find nothing. The index is no more in your data. Six months after lauching, the search engines send me 200 / 250 visitors a day. In february, I re-submit manualy the url again without any result. Live is one of the most important searchengine but your bot erase himself his work. 8 pages indexed on oktober, 3 in december and 0 now. What can i do ?
    Thanks for any help
