Subject: Check the new MS Bing, How ya ranking?
MS put out Bing, [www.bing.com] their new entry into search, have you checked out it's SERPs for your niche words? It will be intresting to see how much MS pushes it & how much of the search market they get out of the new engine.

I did a quick check on a few of the terms I do well in G and I do at least as well on the terms I chase, and saw results for the most part I would expect to see, so I have no complaints, I hope they get some search market to send my way!!

Be watching your logs!!

To me so far with limited checks it simply mirrors Google [more or less].

I checked it out--very similar to Google, for the terms I checked, but not as sophisticated. My site gets that multi-link treatment Google has been using of late when it hits #1. No equivalent for Bing.

I'd be happy if Bing does well because msn traffic does better for me than google traffic and I would think that would be true for Bing as well.

But why did they name it after a singer?

Yes, a Google clone.

I suspect MSN traffic may have done better because search was so poor that you were experiencing grateful people fleeing from it!

So a better Bing may be less bling for you... B^>

In any case I would welcome some serious competition for G.

In 2 days that new bading thingy sent me 1600 visitors, how it did it I have no idea since most Microsoft's crawling gets denied by my site.

I tried to check this new thingy and typed bling.com in my browser (only some parked domain there).

Yes I know smiling smiley.

Results still awkward here. But I think they are working on foreign languages and are far from done yet.

Interesting to see what they will accomplish except perhaps make it the default SE for newcomers using latest M$ OS and Browser.

The handful of queries I tried it on it did well (and ranked me well too!)...

Seems better than my normal low M$ expectations...

Google Analytics reports it as referral traffic--I guess they haven't figured out what it is yet!
