Netregistry Ditches Microsoft Search

Since launch, Netregistry has assisted 1,201 customers to accelerate their submission to the search engines using its GoLive service. Over that period we have discovered that on average it takes 14 days to get submitted to Google, 22 days to get submitted to Yahoo! and 42 days to get submitted to Microsoft.

These numbers actually make Microsoft’s search engine Live Search look better than it is since there still remain several hundred customers who are unlisted on the Microsoft network and many of those have been unable to get listed even after 150 days.

Attempts to get the Microsoft search team to respond to queries on this subject have fallen on deaf ears and as such, Netregistry has removed support for submission to the Microsoft search engine and other Microsoft supported websites like and from it’s GoLive service until the situation improves.

GoLive is a $50 Search Engine Submission service that gets your website listed on Google, Yahoo! and until recently the Microsoft Live Search & NineMSN.
