MSN Search: Still Ugly...

8 comments

Certainly not as serious as their complete outage from a few weeks back, but somebody's not paying attention over at MSN. Canadians (and maybe others outside the US) using MSN today see LOC_GEOREDIR_GOTO_SITE on the main page and in the top-right corner of the SERPs. After 8-10 hours you think someone would take a minute to fix that up.

Screens here and here.

It's foobarred in the UK too.

Poor Microsoft

Stupid

I have been seeing this for over 24 hrs now. Typical MSN...

What's The DEAL!

How can Microsoft say that they are serious about search and let something like this happen for HOURS?

I know that Microsoft is serious about making the search $$$, but you gotta have a quality product first, and it seems like they are not willing to spend the cash to get the right people in place.

Amazing

It is pretty amazing to see these things over and over from Microsoft. It's as if they say they are serious about search but then set a couple high school code junkies in the basement to run it.

Also, has anyone else noticed how much worse their resuls have gotten?

Hours??

Will be days soon.

Useless trivia

I love Threadwatch and read it several times per day, but not for useless search news. MSN Canada having an issue = BFD

hmmm

Am I the only one wondering why shorebreak loves ThreadWatch and reads it several times per day?

It may seem like useless

It may seem like useless trivia, but IMHO it is a symptom of bigger problems at hand.

its easy for it to get that way when you can just pick a term and rank with minimal investment.
