MSN Crawling issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all.

    Like most people I've become despondent with the msn search bot.

    I posted a question a while back in an attempt to find out why my site wasn't being indexed.

    Yahoo and Google index the site correctly however msn do not.

    I was told that I needed to remove/reduce the links referring to the site from forums.

    I did this however msn have stripped all but one of my pages from their search results.

    I guess this is my last attempt to try to figure out whats going wrong...

    From what I can see I'm complying totally with msn guidelines however something is still wrong.

  • This may sound a little weird, but in my experience, the our bot likes a good amount of crawlable content on the home page. Looking at yours without images and JavaScript, the only thing I see is a random mod title and your nav bar. You may want to add some text content to the page and see what happens.
