Microsoft overhauls Live.com search page

The software maker is in the midst of a major revamp to its search product. Over the coming weeks, the company will make more changes, including to the engine itself. Whether the changes add up to more eyeballs is an open question.

Microsoft has overhauled the look of its Live.com search page, part of a series of changes expected in the coming weeks.

While the first visible changes are to the user interface, fonts and look of the Live.com search page, the bigger changes are coming to the engine itself, as well as the way Microsoft presents results. (Props to the folks over at Liveside.net for spotting the changes.)

Microsoft has scheduled a press event, dubbed "Searchification," for September 26 at its Silicon Valley offices, where it is expected to tell all.

But we'll keep watching to see if more details squeak out onto the Web. If you see more changes, let us know.
