Once again, MSN previewed its new beta search engine yesterday in a few non-US countries, but only for a very short time. Those lucky enough to catch it while it was live noted that it had improved since the first preview. This past summer, Microsoft hinted that the new search engine would be live by the end of this year. With this second preview, it looks like that prediction might be on the mark. I look forward to having another strong competitor in the SEO game. It will give us yet one more basket to place our SEO eggs into.
