Microsoft Is Having Trouble Indexing Itself

Somebody should pass this along to the kids at Microsoft:

When you put out a product or service, check your search results to make sure that your brands end up higher up in your search engine’s results than your competitors.

A few weeks ago, Microsoft introduced Windows Live Sky Drive to the world. It’s a web-based storage locker for your files. A few days ago, I decided to give it a whirl…so I searched for it. As of this post, here’s a snap of the Google results:

goo-skysearch 

And here’s Microsoft’s Live Search results:

live-skysearch

The first result on Microsoft’s own search engine? A UK-based distributor of aircraft engines (side note: this result doesn’t come up within the first 50 results on Google).

Maybe someone at Microsoft should send Google a Thank You note?
