MSN ranks me #1 for ‘Transformers the Movie’

Here’s an interesting thing, an SEO related post from me. I know, this blog is supposed to be about SEO yet I rarely mention it. Well, now I am. Shut up and listen.

The random website generator known as MSN always seemed to ignore my Transformers related websites, despite excellent rankings on Yahoo! and Google. It’s as if MSN had some odd, random element to its algorithm. You don’t say!

Anyhow, I recently moved the Transformers The Movie website I own to a new host and converted it to WordPress, and would you credit it but MSN suddenly found it? Not only found it, but whacked it at #1 for ‘Transformers the Movie‘. Just for the record it’s also #1 in Live.com’s variation.

Now is this because I’ve moved to a UK based host, or is it the more indexable (nice word that) WordPress that’s done the trick?

To be honest whatever the reason, if being #1 in MSN for a result was worth two shits I’d be really excited. As it is it’s worth sod all, while I’m glad MSN has discovered my website I wish the general Internet using public would discover MSN.
