View Full Version : Indexing on MSN
04-30-2005, 08:38 PM
I have success getting my site listed on Google and Yahoo, but i am not able to get my site listed on MSN,
any suggestions or advice .
Hi... welcome to the forum!
Do you mean your linux site?
I'm seeing it indexed and cached in Yahoo and Google, but not in MSN... very odd...
The other odd thing is that your backlinks are showing in msn...
So I looked at your source code and saw lots of strange robots metatags that were non-standard or inconsistent... My feeling is that you are not indexed in msn because somehow you've told them you don't want to be!!
If I were you I would delete all of your robot/robots/revisit tags from your homepage, wait a week or two, and see what what happens...

I would switch with you any day. I am #1 in msn and not yet in google.
49% share for google while 13% for msn. no brainer.

Have you checked your web logs to see if MSN bot is visiting your site?

you are right, i have overlooked those meta tags for robots, i do have robots.txt file on / directory. do i need Meta tags for robots as well .

Thanks Paz for looking into my site.
I just removed all bogus meta tags for robot except these two :
<meta name="robots" content="ALL,follow">
<meta name="revisit-after" content="1 days">
I am not sure whether i should keep these, i will check after a week to find out whether msnbot going to index my site now ....
<meta name="robots" content="ALL,follow">[/QUOTE]
I use the same, but I'm thinking about removing it....
[QUOTE=aix4200]<meta name="revisit-after" content="1 days">
haha pointless.... sorry... it's like trying to tell the clouds how often you want rain.. I would strongly recommend you delete it!
Anyway, be sure to get back to us!!

Hi.... I'm not sure if many Linux enthusiasts are using Yahoo to be honest... I think Yahoo users are more interested in recreational matters.
Anyway, I've PM'd yah!
