Windows Live Search Gets an Upgrade

On the Live Search Blog this week, Microsoft’s Search Team announced that it has released an upgrade to its Live Search engine.  The enhancements to the search engine include:

  • Improved Core Relevance – Improved search results for the searches you do day in and day out
  • Reduced Spam – Constantly improving to stay ahead of the curve to filter out sites that use illegitimate or malicious SEO techniques
  • Dramatically Improved “Snippets” – The site summaries have been improved and expanded in the search results page
  • Much Bigger  Index – The index has grown to 20 billion pages – 4 times larger than before
  • Smart Logic to interpret some keywords – for example NW and Northwest are the same

Take a look and see if you notice the difference.  Leave feedback about your Live Search experiences here.
