"Now for the pictures :) Following are a few shots of
MSN index rank checking as compared to Google index rank checking.
Although most people will tell you it should be the opposite, it
seems that we have a much better presence on Google than on MSN,
after being in business (read: shamelessly self-promoting by
answering question in forums, writing articles and submitting a
billion sitemaps) for a year or so.
"Following those, an EVEN BETTER set of pictures that made me
scratch my head and mutter "WTF?" You'll see why. Let's just say
that this site ranks lower on MSN for a certain keyword phrase than
other sites that point to the post AND the first time our site
comes up in that "double quoted" exact-string search, it's for an
entirely unrelated post (???) Who has the time to wonder? ;) After
that, way down at the bottom, we've somehow managed to remember to
tack on the script."
