Outdated pages are automatically deleted when we update our index. However, if other sites that link to your site don't update their links to your site, we might find those outdated links when MSNBot crawls those sites. To resolve this problem, remember the following when you change links:
- Determine the websites that link to your website.
- Notify the website owners about your changes.
To determine who links to your site, use the following syntax in the Live Search box:
For example, to search for websites that link to www.microsoft.com, type link:www.microsoft.com in the Live Search box, and then press ENTER.
This function has not worked for months as we are anticipating that Microsoft may possibly be getting ready to release a product similar to Google Webmaster Tools where users can have access to a wide variety of tools that provide indexed page data, linking information and other diagnostic stats.
Regardless following the above guidelines is the easiest way to get your site and page content indexed in Windows Live. For more on indexing issues, visit Microsoft Windows Live Help.
