I am Microsoftie 4 ever (19+ years) working in Windows Services and Content team in the UK, my blog is mainly focused on the Windows family of products and trying to provide help pointers and resources for customers on our products.
Just a quick update to my post http://blogs.msdn.com/robmar/archive/2008/06/27/hard-to-find-windows-vista-help-and-how-to-articles.aspx from last week.
So we are seeing some changes to what content is now being indexed (see table below)
So we saw the Live and Google spiders crawl the site on the days since the post, and we can see that 2 of the articles where now indexed by Live and no changes for Google. So I have got my colleague Magnus to test what happens if a 2nd blogger links to the same content. So we shall check back later and see if anything changes.
* I am not sure if Yahoo was indexing the content prior to my posting, but have added it to get a view across all the 3 search engines.
Also here are 4 more articles that are not indexed by the search engines:
I find the last one odd that it isn’t indexed as it is one of our most popular visited articles.
Yesterday I posted about the 2 new Windows Vista LIPs (Malay and Assamese) that became available over the weekend.
Well last night 2 Indian language LIPs where launched:
1. Oriya - download
“Oriya is one of the official languages of India. About 90 percent of the speakers live in the state Orissa in the East of India, but there are also sizable communities in the neighboring states of West Bengal and Jharkand and, due to labor migration, also in Gujarat”
2. Bengali - download
“Bengali is spoken in the region of eastern South Asia known as Bengal, comprising Bangladesh (where it is spoken by about 110 million people) and the Indian state of West Bengal (where it is spoken by 55 million people). With more than 200 million speakers it is the second most widely spoken language on the Indian subcontinent and among the 5 languages with the most native speakers worldwide. Bengali is official language of Bangladesh, one of India’s 23 official languages and the official language of the Indian states of West Bengal and Tripura."
****Please note that above LIPs can only be installed on systems that run an English version of Windows Vista. ****
