    Spam detection in MSN Beta

    I think they need to work on their spam detection. I found a holiday site which was packing huge 50 word sentences in Image ALT tags and stuffing their page full of repeated phrases. MSN Beta thinks this is great and puts them in the top 3! The same site doesn't seem to feature in G. I would imagine that their ALT tag spam detector threshold kicked in. The site has PR4 though so it's not banned!!

    Anyone else noticed overt spam in the results?

    See my "Banned in Beta" post today.

    I think they reversed the spam dam today.
