Using MSN Search

P: n/a
Hi Gang,

I wrote MSN Search into my ASP.NET 2.0 website and confugured it to search
only my website so that, in effect, it is a local search utility. I
published the website back in September. It took until last month for my
website to get indexed. The problem is that search results are returned only
for the default page.

If I change the website to be searched to some other site, results come back
for all pages.

I was wondering if anybody knows how this works. Does MSN index the home
page first and then come back and do the other pages later?

Thanks.

Steve
