msn ?

Anyone had any luck getting indexed / hits from msn search?

My thai games.com site wasn't even indexed, so I hand submitted it last week. Nothing has happened yet.

I have heard MSN Search weights keyword domains very nicely, so a top ten position in MSN search sounds a distinct possibility, but I'm not even sure if it can handle IDNs yet.

Anyone?

Did you ask them, or just check to see if your domains were indexed?

Re: msn ?

Nobody else have knowledge of whether msn is currently indexing IDN sites?

Re: msn ?

They do
I have one term that ranked at number 7 for a long time
I am at least getting 30 to 40 targeted uniques from MSN a day(for that domain).
It's not thousands but it's way more than I expected from MSN.

MSN doesn't show the Unicode just Punycode right now

My roulette.jp shows up #1 but there's hardly a trickle of traffic from MSN
ルーレット
Business terms seem to do better.

Excellent. Thanks for the info. I found our games site:

http://xn--12c8d1a4fxc.com

wasn't being indexed by MSN last week, so I did a manual "add url". Hopefully it will get indexed soon and get decent traffic. msn.co.th is only 9,600 Alexa ranked so I won't hope for too much :p

Re: msn ?

I have seen IDN sites indexed in msn search results - they come up as punycode where it shows the link in green....

Olney had answered as I was typing

Re: msn ?

I have hooked up my Arabic site to Google Analytics. Interestingly, there is some search referal from Yahoo, but it is mainly type in. I was interested to see if I could find out from Analytics which browsers people were using. Couldn't figure out how to get them information. Can anyone help?

Re: msn ?

When I was looking into msn in response to Domainguru's question I found quite a few of your Arabic Namedrive pages RD. Have you noticed many hits coming from msn search ?

No, I haven't but thanks for the pointers.

I was wondering if we could get Analystics on parking by banging the Google Code into the description on URL forwarding. What do you think?

Having had a cursory look, MSN is clearly not a big driver of traffic in Arabic. Probably mainly because it is not much used.

The site "Pyramids.com" shows up at No. 31 on Yahoo, but the URL is in punycode suggesting that I am not getting ranking benefit from that.

Re: msn ?

Yes in msn the URL's are all in punycode too....

I'm honestly not sure about Analytics....I would have thought it was difficult to set up on a parking page....

Re: msn ?

On some of my japanese idn sites 10% of traffic comes from MSN which seems consistent with their market share. I haven't checked but clearly I am indexing there.

can you send me the punycode of one site that is indexed by msn? I want to check whether their site: and url: commands work properly with IDNs.

Re: msn ?

MSN generally takes longer, for me that is. But they do end up getting ranked faster than google and with decent results, only mine are all in punycode as everyone else seems to be seeing.
