    There is a quite simple way Microsoft could immediately win users over from Google: Turn off the “nofollow” switch.

    For more sophisticated (advanced) users, it could offer sliders (similar to the facebook.com sliders) to weight the different “rel” types.

    Either way, this would get me to switch to live.com as my default search engine of choice immediately — “nofollow” was a really stoopid idea (it ranks up there with “miserable failure” as one of the worst mistakes ever made at the Googleplex).

    In the long run, we’re all dead. In the medium term, domain names will become ever more significant. In the short run, fixing the “nofollow” mistake would give Microsoft a great advantage over Google.
