Greek Island Cruise – Greece, Turkey and Eastern Mediterranean Holidays

Spent most of last week recovering from a wiped hard drive, got most of the data back thankfully!

Tweaked the Greek Island Cruise – Greece, Turkey and Eastern Mediterranean Holidays page of Carrick Select today, currently ranked in the mid-50s in Yahoo. I upped the body text density slightly and fiddled with the alt tags. Yahoo have finally updated their cache of the site, it’s now only a few weeks old rather than a few months…

I’m expecting Google to update backlinks any day now. Last update was the 30th October and they usually update every 3 weeks or so.

MSN Search

New MSN search was launched yesterday: MSN Search, well the beta version anyway…

Basically they’re dropping Yahoo’s results in favour of their own results gathered by MSNbot, their search engine spider. I’m hoping it launches “for real” very soon as the current MSN relies in Yahoo’s extremely out of date index (most of the copies of pages from the sites I look after in it’s index are 2 months old or more!) and MSN promise to crawl as often as every 2 days to every 2 weeks.
