I had chance to take a look at new MSN search. It indexes pages from this site, but it indexes pages with session id for some reason. Do you guys know why this is happening?

Any idea what the bot's user_agent is called?

With Google and Inkitomi or however thats spelt we've got some code which removes the session ID's, but we can only do this on a per user_agent basis.

Is their search engine now live or sitting in beta somewhere?

msnbot/0.3 (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)

I think this is the bot's name, but there is a good chance that the name will change as MSN upgrades its SE.

The last estimates that I heard were that it will go live in December or January. This is hearsay though and I do not wish to be held accountable for MS doing whatever it likes.

Yes, I recall that. MS representatives including Bill Gates were saying something like that, but it was a while ago.

Chances are that they will move it though as I believe the original plans were to launch it in July.

This is the bot thatís been on OX1 for ever!
Code:
msnbot/0.3 (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)

It does about 30.000 pages every month!! I last heard that the MSN search was going live this October canít remember where I read that but I think it was the bbc.

I think most SID Killers will work as long as you have the msnbot part of the agent id. Depending on which hack youíre using you could ad bot and spider as this will cover most SEís.

This is the hack I use: http://ox1.biz/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1016#2319
