According to two Search Engine Watch moderators, Mikkel and Marcia, it takes less then a week to get indexed and ranking at MSN Search. The small thread is named How Long does it Take for New Site being Indexed to Receiving a Ranking through MSN? Answered by a few folks including;

Mikkel deMib Svendsen: MSN is probably the engine that index and rank new pages the fastest at the moment. At least, thats my experience. I usually get most new sites indexed and well ranked within a matter of days.

Marcia: Yep, less than a week from when the first pages are uploaded. And then they pick up new pages added almost immediately.

Sounds about right, a couple of my housemates recently setup a new site and were quite quickly excited at MSN crawling/indexing it. Yahoo! wasn't too far behind in crawling, though not sure if the site was lsited shortly after that or not.

This info is not exactly correct! It's all a matter of luck if you ask me. I've had sites ranked by MSN in a matter of two weeks in the past but my new http://casas-en-miami.blogspot.com/ has been up for about a month and although it recently got listed, only 1 post of about 33 posts is actually indexed and you can only find it if you look for the site URL. I am already getting some traffic from Google (about 30 visits a day), and Yahoo hasn't even indexed it yet (although I answered a Yahoo answers question). Is there a way to accelarate the process in windows live search apart from getting a bunch of bunch of back links from high pr sites (I already have about 3 backlinks)?

Hi - I found that MSN indexed me fairly quickly, but not noticably quicker than Yahoo & Google. What I did notice though, on a range of key terms, is how quickly I got more success with these terms on Google & Yahoo - MSN has proved to be really slow, and if the same had happened on Google, I would think I'd been sandboxed.....seems strange, as most people writing on these topics seem to suggest that MSN is the easiest Search Engine to rank well on.......

I've found that the chrome SEO plugin has been useful in getting my website http://fxforexsoftware.com indexed. I use some great traffic keyword tools as well. Stop by and let me know what your think.
