Microsoft Fixes Referral Bug in Windows Live Search

On September 15th we reported that Live.com Is Not Passing Referer Information, then on September 18th we reported that MSN Says Live.com Referral Bug "Not By Design". Today I am happy to report that Microsoft has fixed the referral error, and is now passing referer data.

A post by MSNdude at WebmasterWorld forums, see message number 3091162 says;

The fix went out a few hours ago, and it's nice to see that it appears to work. We do know this information is important to webmasters, and we regret the inconvenience.
