    Maybe not too many people are looking for those keywords. And then those few who are searching for those keywords are clicking on your competitors' sites.

    Just recently I've read about someone having exactly the same problem as yours. His conclusion was that just not too many people are searching on MSN. And many of the clicks are going to the sponsored sites found on top, at the right, and at the bottom of the search result pages. Google's traffic is still the best, according to him.

    I rank very highly for some of my keywords and get no traffic for them. Then again if it wasn't for the old MSN, and especially the new MSN, one of my sites would have NO traffic. As it is it gets about 100-150 hits a day from MSN. It occasionally gets hits from Yahoo as well.

    For March, Google is 6th on my referrer list for that particular site with 22 hits.

    Hi;

    I also had a good postion for a few of my keywords on MSN. The bot came by often but very seldom saw any results. I really think MSN is a nd will always be a search engine not relevant. As much as I hate to say it, Google rules with Yahoo second.

    I agree... My site is number one for "penpals" on MSN, but I'm not getting any traffic from that. Google and Yahoo are the top dogs. I just hope they don't end up killing each other.
