Microsoft using MSNBOT to build its own search engine
by Martin Belam, 18 June 2003
Looks like the competition will shortly be hotting up in the search engine world - Microsoft have started sending their own MSNbot out scouring the web to build a new index for MSN search
"This crawl is a prototype work. MSNbot is not currently indexing for the MSN Search Engine, so your site may or may not show up in MSN Search results today. Although we have not set a date, it is our intention to eventually integrate the crawled contents into MSN Search results."
