Search Engine Journal Not Indexed in Microsoft’s Live Search

SMS Text

For some odd reason Search Engine Journal is not indexed in Live Search, Microsoft’s new version of MSN Search.

* There are 99,604 occurences of the term “Search Engine Journal” in Live Search results.

* Live Search shows 81,172 sites linking to Search Engine Journal. (Yahoo shows more than double the amount.)

And there is no question as to the quality, age, or value of this site in terms of supplying search engine news.

So, why is www.searchenginejournal.com not indexed in Microsoft’s Live Search?

Can someone from Live Search please address this immediately and contact us.

Update : To add to the irony, if you go to the Live Search WebLog and scroll down a bit, you’ll see that on the left sidebar the Live Search team lists Search Engine Journal as a ‘Site We Read’.

Live Search Team, please help! 🙂

Update 2 : Microsoft Live Search has emailed me with this message saying that the problem was that SEJ was labeled as SPAM by Live Search. I wonder how that could have happened?
