Not only is MSN updating its blog at a quick pace, but it is actually providing information that we as SEOs can use. This post discusses the MSN search beta feature "Near Me", which is MSN's version of Local Search. The post not only explains how MSN performs a Near Me search, but even details exactly what we as webmasters should do to ensure that MSN Search knows your exact locale.
In this post, we get some feedback on what to expect in the future, such as a developer API and possible integration with Newsbot.
I am so far impressed with the information being given to us. We have had to guess at so much for so long, that it is refreshing to have a search engine share some real info for a change. Kudos to the msnsearch weblog team.
