Hey everyone,

Has anyone installed in-portal on a already existing site that gets traffic? I ask this becasue I rank really igh on my keywords and every since MSN has gone live I get allot of traffic now. Allot more than I've ever had. But I'm worried about switching over cause this may effect my rankings. I was wondering if anyone has experienced getting a lower ranking or do you think it will hurt my rankings at all? I think it will since the first page is very importany witth MSN, since they do not list all pages from your website. Or any suggestions are helpful too.

many thanks!

I am not very familiar with new technology what MSN SE uses to calculate the rankings, but I think you can start with checking what pages are getting properly spidered and then cached. I guess, you can place a small link to your beta (In-portal) site on the main/first page so bots can find it.

As you know usually the ranking is caclulated from your position in the web (links to/from other websites) plus propably some other factors.

Thank you.
