A WebmasterWorld thread asks if reinclusion requests at Microsoft's Search works.

Like with Google reinclusion requests, some go heard and some go unheard.

For example, one WebmasterWorld member has yet to hear back from Microsoft and his site is still not indexed. But another just had his site reindexed at after a reinclusion request was submitted 3 months ago.

As of today one of my sites, the one MSNDude said they ware realeasing from the ban has appeared in MSN. It's got about 20 pages indexed so I guess it is a start!

So how do you submit a reinclusion request at

According to this help document, you can email [email protected].

How do you know if your site is not listed in

If you suspect that your website was removed from the MSN Search index, you can use MSN Search to see whether a particular web page is still there. To see whether your web page is still in the index, type the url:keyword followed by the web addressof your Web page. For example, type, and then click Search.

To see which web pages on your website are indexed, type the site:keyword followed by the web address for your website. For example, type, and then click Search. Because the web crawlersthat index websites manage millions of pages, it's normal for some pages to move in and out of the index.

To request reinclusion:

We may remove a website from the index if the website was reported as spam. If you suspect that your website was incorrectly identified as spam, please send an e-mail message to [email protected].

I also hear this online form make work as well.
