Hopefulley this is the correct forum for this question - tech support hasn't been too useful.

I have been trying to submit my Space URL site on the Live Search Submit site....heare's the URL:

http://ansoneedoesitagain.spaces.live.com/

Every time I click submit (and I'm entering the "characters" correctly), it keeps telling me to enter a valid URL !

If I paste that URL into any browser, it works just fine....

What is the deal

Thanks!

I have been trying to enter a url there for about a week. The submission protocol has been disabled. The service is rejecting any and all url submissions. 9 days ago, I noticed that thousands of websites were deleted from this search engine, likely due to the switch into Windows Live Search.

IMHO: Switch to a search engine that is content driven rather than client driven. Paid search engine placement only produces irrelevant and unwelcome search results. Isn't the internet confusing enough the way it is

Well...isn't that special...

What I really like is the way that they notify or inform you that submission has been disabled...

Great.

Thanks for the reply!

I may have been a bit premature in the previous relpy. I hadn't taken into account misdirection to a "false" website. A different search turned up this website. Subitting a url for submission here worked.

It doesn't excuse the fact that one of their sites doesn't work, though. I spent hours trying to submit to the other one. Grrr.

You're right...it did work with this site...

...and I completely agree with you on the fact that one site works and the other doesn't. It might be nice to TELL people that site actually doesn't work.

...and they wonder why people get so annoyed with them...

Thanks!!

...back to this again...

I was able to submit my site, but yet when I search Spaces for me or blog entries or even my name, I get zero results back

I do a search on my public name, even search on specific entries in my blog that I know are there, yet zilch...

I don't get it...

Problems submitting URL to live Live seems to had dropped my .co.uk address, however the .com address is still present, which is a less popular

I use the 2try4 search tool, which allows you to compare results, since last week Live.com has been returning less accurate search results from those on Google, Yahoo, MSN and ASK. This has only happened however in the last couple of weeks Also the submission tool does not seem to work at all, I tried both urls and the same thing occurs, an error is returned "Please enter a valid URL with the format: http://www.example.com/"

So...

Is someone from the Windows Live Search group going to respond to any of these posts IT seems to be a legitimate problem that needs to if not addressed - at least acknowledged...

I just had my boss drop into my office and ask me why none of our were no longer listed on MSN search. He thought I had screwed up some code and completely blown our SEO optimization (he was ready to fire me over it). Hopefully someone from Microsoft can shead some light on this issue and quickly.
