A thread at SEO Chat describes how members are very pleased with the speed of the new MSN Search Engine in crawling and then indexing the new pages. My personal tests do not show that it is any faster then Google, but SEO Chat members feel that MSN is faster then Google and the other engines at indexing new Web pages. Some quotes:
I have been watching several recently launched site with very unique names (that previously had 0 results at all SEs). MSN has indexed the most pages both on the site(s) and mentioning them. They have crawled more than 10 times the number of pages that Google or Yahoo! have.
Yes, I've recently lauched a new website (about a week or two) with 22 pages and all were crawled in the next day by MSN. Google only has 11 pages and Yahoo! doesn't have a single one!
