Doing a bit of ego surfing this morning I noticed an embeded map link in one of the results. I've checked a couple other SERP's that I have verified the address for the company name and didn't see it anywhere. I like it I'm just not sure what's triggering it (screen shot after the jump)
Just wen you think it couldn't get any worse it turns out that Bush does something even more crazy.
The newspaper said the Bush administration started the site under pressure from congressional Republicans who had hoped to use the Internet to find new evidence of the dangers posed by former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein before the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

I delete almost all cookies when I close a browser, and use proxy servers much more regularly. We even looked at a few ways of hiding your tracks with various methods but like many of you I found the solutions less than satisfying. I recently came across an alpha release of a firefox plugin called track me not which issues 'fake queries' to Google, AOL, Yahoo, and MSN in the background while you browse.
Just looked up to see a new link in AdSense Reports tab - 'Site Diagnostics'. Not that there are any showing, but, if there were, they would be telling me what, when, why and how many failed crawl attempts there had been.
It appears that there are some reports that search.msn.com is having trouble, we were able to duplicate the problem and got a screen shot of the error message people are getting. It's not happening all the time.. but enough so that people are complaining.
