MSN Spaces introduces Live Spaces today and my initial reactions are good except for one item, the URLs have changed once again. Finally Spacers are allowed to use the full width of the screen and add mutiple modules to keep in contact with friends. I doubt I will ever use most of them because of the time it takes to load my Space. I have added another feature spacer to bring my totaly to two, Jolie Mae & RedwineGoesBig.
All these changes over the past year have shown that the Microsoft team has been working their butts off but I have one simple request.
Stop changing the URLs.
I went from a PR 4 to a zero, and probably less of a zero since the switch from htp://goingbigger.spaces.MSN.com/ to http://goingbigger.spaces.LIVE.com/. Will our once heftly traffic ever return or will the Spaces Team continue to change our address so we have to fully rely on Live Spaces for traffic? I personally like getting traffic for the various search engines around the world and getting new, non spaces related traffic.
It seems that this is just another hurdle for us to cross. This Space used to be my bread and butter when it came to page rank. Now it is my MySpace (PR 3) is my highest PR site. My real estate site is a PR 2 but it does way to much traffic for me to put to much emphasis on its PR.
Well I am off to see what I can do with the reconstruction of my Space. Take care all and chat with ya soon!
