MSN corrects the referrer problem from earlier this week
Originally written by Eric Peterson on September 21, 2006
I’ve been busy so I’m late to the news but I’m sure by now you’ve all seen that MSN has corrected the search referrer problem they created earlier this week. You can read more about it in a post that Ian Thomas from MSN posted to the Yahoo! group. Ian’s a great guy and it was nice of him to provide the group this information.
Now if only everyone could get the data back from the 15th to the 21st, huh?
