A WebmasterWorld thread states that smaller pages tend to rank better in MSN search as compared to larger pages.
 
Has anyone else noticed that very small pages rank highest in MSN? This could explain why doorways and blogspots rank so well.

Within 2 days, the page went from page 5 to page 1 for a competitive phrase.
