I run a travel site for hotel booking
I have optimized all pages for some keywords. when I search in msn for my domain I only see two pages ( the frontpage - index and one page below my frontpage called skive).
The skive page is optimized for "hotel skive" here I get a first place in msn.dk.
But I have more than 100 pages which are ranked at google and with a good ranking. These pages I cant find in msn. Why is that?
For me it seems like msn havent indexed all my pages.
I hope somebody can help me.

Do your pages show up in Yahoo?
MSN is currently using the Yahoo! Slurp data, so if the pages in question don't show up in Yahoo! either that could well be the reason they don't show up in MSN.
The current MSN does apply some of their own filtering, but if the pages aren't in the Yahoo! index, generally speaking they won't be in MSN's either.
FWIW, MSN is getting ready to release their own search product. Supposedly before the end of the year. So you may find your pages in the preview version of that. But even if you find the missing pages there you'll still want to address whatever is causing Yahoo! to have problems.

How long have these pages been live? Generally, Google picks up new pages much more quickly than Yahoo.

I find all of my pages in yahoo when I search for my domain.
I dont now for how long time I have been in msn maybe 1-2 months.
My site have been in google since May 2004.
But I think that its strange that msn find my index page and only one other page.

Just to make sure we're not dealing with a false negative situation...
Are you searching for your site on MSN by the domain name to see how many pages show up? ie a search for www.yourdomain.com ?
If you are, search MSN instead with site:www.yourdomain.com or even site:yourdomain.com as it'll likely make a difference.
MSN limits results from the same site to two pages, just like most of the other engines. Using the site: search will give you a truer representation of the pages they know about.

When I do this search at yahoo I find all my sites.
Is it something with my metatags? Do my sites miss something since msn cant index all the sites
