It’s Official – MSN Webmaster Center is Open for Business

by Stephen Pitts on November 15, 2007

I have outlined the MSN Webmaster Portal Center over the past few months, and now it is open for everyone:

Webmaster Tools: Open for Business

This week we’re excited to announce that the Live Search Webmaster Center has moved out of its closed beta and we are now open for a public beta. In conjunction with this release we want to announce the creation of the Live Search Webmaster Center blog. In an effort to serve our webmaster community better we will be sharing information on how to improve your crawlablity and visibility.

We want the center and the blog to be a place for two way communication between Live Search and the webmaster community because we understand that SEO’s and webmasters need this kind of information and the tools we are building to keep their sites performing well.

In the coming weeks we’ll blog in detail about the improvements that we’ve made. Being a webmaster is what you do best. We want to provide a service that will help make you even better. Enjoy!

- The Live Search Webmaster Center Team

Hoping you can help me out. I have a site that has an outdated organic result showing up in MSN. I tried updating it in DMOZ as well as applying a tag to the page the should have forced MSN to stop using DMOZ results and simply crawl the page. No luck. Any ideas? THanks

Thanks for the question. I am not too familiar with dealing with this specific concern, but have you tried to contact MSN directly? You might try by going to their forums ( and asking directly. Hope this will help!
