Lessons Learned from the SEO Contest – MSN Failing Big Time

By Scott

I think the big news of the SEO contest is that 3 days after its launch, MSN has yet to show any websites when the contest phrase “v7ndotcom elursrebmem” is searched.

As I’ve catalogued so far, Google was the first to show some results on the day the contest launched.

On the second day, Yahoo covered the v7ndotcom elursrebmem search results much more comprehensively than Google (10 to 71).

Now, on the third day, Google is indexing over 12,000 results. Yahoo has grown to about 1,200… and disgustingly:

MSN has yet to index a single site – which is completely lame.

How can MSN claim to be an important search engine if it takes them 3 days to index a phenomena like this (even if it’s a manufactured phenomena).
