Live Search will not dump their clueless and ineffective search quality project. They’re proud to be the one and only bigger search engine that spams.

Even when they apologize to the Webmaster community, they’re not able to tell the truth. They say they don’t spam sites that don’t cloak, but they do. They say that they obey robots.txt, but they don’t. They say they caught lots of spammers, but they discovered spam only from a few tiny sites cranked out for a very short life cycle, and now the cloaking scripts are immune.

What a pile of crap.

Bah to human traffic - it’s overrated anyway. MSN’s bot-laden traffic will make us all feel like we’re operating websites in a bizarre, idiot version Bladerunner. Or to give it its proper title ’Do androids search for electric MILFs?’

You have to read what this ex-Microsoft person had to say about this.He’s telling people to deny the tools but not the IPs.Sorry, as long as they’re willing to abuse my server the IP range is BLOCKED!

Hah, "If Microsoft isn’t able view your website, then you’ll very likely be excluded from their Live Search."Just think of the dozen(s) of visitors for untargetted search terms you’ll be missing in a month.

That was pretty much my attitude that I wouldn’t even notice if their traffic stopped so I blocked those IPs

I have a few clients that love their MSN traffic, I just don’t have the heart to tell them it’s just a robot.
