Microsoft Rolls Out 'Secret Search' Program In Australia

by Tameka Kee: Ninemsn, Microsoft's joint venture with PBL Media in Australia, has rolled out "Secret Search," a promotion in which Internet users can win prizes in exchange for using Live Search. Prizes include Compaq Presario computers, Canon Powershot digital cameras, iPods, gift certificates, and even cash.

Well- here's a shout out for you Ninemsn, my fellow Aussie compadre
Basically- the search function on Ninemsn is shit. That's why no one uses it.
I guess this is also why they only give self comparative stats "Last year, data from Compete showed a 67% spike in Live Search queries from May to June 2007, and a 48% jump year-over-year." As they say, what's zero from zero?
