Update – hard to find Windows Vista help and how-to articles


Just a quick update to my post http://blogs.msdn.com/robmar/archive/2008/06/27/hard-to-find-windows-vista-help-and-how-to-articles.aspx from last week.

So we are seeing some changes to what content is now being indexed (see table below)

All you can eat music: Download all the music you want for the price of a single CD yes no no
Online fun in Windows Media Center-TV and News yes yes no
Creating an online cookbook yes yes no
What is Windows Live?
yes no no

So we saw the Live and Google spiders crawl the site on the days since the post, and we can see that 2 of the articles where now indexed by Live and no changes for Google.  So I have got my colleague Magnus to test what happens if a 2nd blogger links to the same content.  So we shall check back later and see if anything changes.
