By now you’ve probably seen the new MSN homepage, which made its official debut in March. The page cuts through the clutter with a cleaner, more simplified design that integrates search, news, local, social networking, and more. We are very excited to reach this milestone, which marks MSN’s biggest redesign in over a decade. We’re also very excited that Bing is widely integrated into the new experience, providing more opportunities to make faster more informed decisions with Bing on MSN.
The Bing search box is now larger and is located front and center on your homepage (you can’t miss it!), making it easier for you to quickly search. The new page also keeps you in the know on popular topics with an increased prominence of Popular Searches – that the most interesting and topical Bing searches of the day.
There has also been an increased focus on bringing you editorial programming of search-related content, including videos and images, to provide you the latest and greatest content from the web. For example, at the end of the week look for The Week in Search where they highlight the top trending search topics and stories for that Week. And, we’re currently testing a Search History feature so you can more easily get back to the information you typically search for, right from your MSN homepage.
You can read more about these changes and get behind the scenes commentary from the MSN team on the MSN Blog.
