Live Search News: MSNBot, Products Launches And Deep Links Appear

Microsoft’s MSNBot is doing more crawling these days and is alerting webmasters accordingly to revisit robots.txt files. More detail can be found on the Live Search Webmaster blog. In other news, Live Search blogs officially talked about its version of sitelinks that first appeared back in September (and see here).

Here’s an example of the links, which judging from how the post is tagged on the Live Search blog, might be called “deep links” by the team internally:

Deep links on Live

Finally, LiveSide posts about the arrival of Live Search products (which I thought already existed). This is a dedicated comparison engine; however, Live Search has been showing product images and reviews for some time.
