Microsoft announced that search.msn.com will be soon replaced by www.live.com, and that live.com is out of beta. Whooopeee, being sarcastic. Ok, past the press release, what does this mean for search engine marketers? Well, not incredibly much.

First we have the forum threads from Search Engine Watch Forums and WebmasterWorld. They discuss primarily the release and the news about this change. Again, I am not jumping for joy.

But what is the difference from a SEOs or SEMs perspective? That is the question of an other Search Engine Watch Forums thread. And there is an older thread from WebmasterWorld asking the differences between the two.

In both threads, there are not major differences. We do not that Windows Live More Strict on Adult Content When Compared with MSN Search, that is clear. But otherwise, outside of the user interface? Well, not much.

Continued forum discussion at the above threads.
