Gary Price uncovers MSN Search prototype

SEO Blog: The images seem to have been taken down, but Gary Price’s post on finding some MSN Search pages for a not yet released search product is worth reading even without the pictures. Highlights:
an option to use three “sliders” to manipulate the ranking of pages. In other words, add or reduce the weight of certain ranking factors. Some might even call it personalization since the results I see might be different than the ones someone else views for the identical search.The sliders are labeled:+ Updated recently–Static+ Very popular–Less popular+ Approximate match–Exact match.
–Clicking the green “arrow” next to the search box offers a pull-down menu with different database options. You will not see PC search listed but an option to run a dictionary search.
