Please read at the URL, rthis is a small excerpt and not really the most important part.

When told to build a better mousetrap, MSN engineers set their goals fairly high and approached the problem from the most logical point possible. They seem to have looked at the best ideas everyone else has come up with and tried to incorporate them into their search tool. The results are better then expected with highly relevant site listings that have been compared to earlier versions of Google’s index. That makes sense given that MSNBot the beta-search spider works very much like GoogleBot, looking for many of the same site elements including incoming links, contextual relationships between linked documents, and overall site context. MSNBot also seems to be interested in keyword-enriched titles and seems especially interested in anchor text.

Given the great changes MSN is planning, dropping the actual search results and adopting a completely new system; given the good results this new system is achieving; given all the uncertainties about Google, and PR not updating; I think dramatic changes will happen.

“given all the uncertainties about Google, and PR not updating”

Users don’t give a damn about PR. Only SEO’s care.

…and when I speak about changes is for website owners. I know that users do not care about PR, but do care website owners, and I see most of them relying on a static measure to make their decisions.

Hmmm both items easily manipulated, yet theyre better results? :crazy: I think its way too early to make concrete conclusions regarding their new search.
