Barry Schwartz posts about a WebmasterWorld thread and the theory of smaller pages outranking larger ones in Live Search results.
WebmasterWorld member crobb305 posts that by minimizing the content on a page, his site was pushed to the first position in MSN Live Search:
I reduced text on my homepage down to just a paragraph or so, with links to my internal pages.
The content reduced from 22k to about 5k.
Within 2 days, the page went from page 5 to page 1 for a competitive phrase.
Does such a theory explain the presence of so many blogspot blogs and ‘dorrways’ ranking highly with Microsoft?
