MSN Wants You To Love Them

MSN filters their SERPS like propaganda fliers during a war.

If you run a search on Google for I love msn and I hate msn the big G yields approximately 100% more results for love.

Run the same search on MSN for I love msn and I hate msn it returns 300% more results for love. Hmmm...

Here's the catch on the "live" search...You get recommended to love MSN and to hate school, Christmas, Walmart, people, life and men.

In my research for this post I found that MSN fan boys like cows. There are fans that hate Google but want MSN to copy them to gain market share. Then of course there is at least one person that bats both ways.

As long as there are people like search master Steve to guide the way, people like SEOHack will have their job of hating MSN made easy.

This post was inspired by the news that MSN is passing around a virus like that girl from down the street that no one wants to touch.

I will never totally trust Google, but I will probably always hate MSN. If only I could be indifferent to those bastards.

I don't want them copying Google, I want them beating Google and making us less dependent on Big Brother.

BTW, what search did you enter to find my page on MSN boosting their share of search? I'm trying to find it in my stats but it's rough combing the data...
Also, when you're dealing with such a small sample size, it's hard to say that they're skewing the data. No one's claiming that their indexes are the same, after all.

@Gab- I was running searches along the lines of...MSN sucks, blows, is the best, worst, etc... I can't tell you exactly which combo yielded your site in the SERPS.

@Hack- I feel your pain.
