anyone got any tips on optimization that only deal with MSN search?
pretty much the same for most of the other major search engines. Lots of inbound links.
Although msn seems to give a higher weight to inbound links with descriptive anchor text.
MSN is less requiring in terms of links - no matter where your link might show up - the first SE that will see it - will be MSN. Pay max attention to Meta tags! Works for MSN
yep i definitely agree for what you've said, having a good content will also help for your site in terms of MSN Ranking.
For me what has worked for MSN is like Sunny Side mentioned, paying close attention to the META tags and also updating your site often. MSN likes new fresh content especially if you are in a niche where the content of your competitor's websites aren't update very often.
Actually, all of the above is good advice, however MSN LOVES clean code. Make sure you validate your xhtml/css and you will do very well with MSN. Basic optimization skills paired with valid w3c code equals high MSN rankings.
