Windows Live More Strict on Adult Content When Compared with MSN Search

MSNdude simply is rocking this days with information you would normally not see a search engine representative divulge. While at the airport last night, I decided to dig deeper into some threads and pull out some chunks. Here is a post at WebmasterWorld by msndude on the adult content filter and the difference between Windows Live search and MSN search.

I think, but the reason for the difference is that the live.com beta has the adult content filter set to "strict," while search.msn.com uses the moderate setting. Once the beta actually offers a control to let users change the setting, it will produce results identical to search.msn.com. That should be soon. But it really is the same search engine behind both of them.

Very good information to know. Thank you for sharing.

I actually like Windows Live Search. I can't say whether the results are as good, but it's the first AJAXish thing MS created that I can tolerate. It's neat.
