Bing Referrals To Blogs

I’ve noticed that Microsoft’s new search engine Bing is now making referrals to my blogs. On most of my blogs it has shot into second position after Google (of course) for search engine referrals. I look at this as being something positive. Microsoft are keen to see Bing out-search Google, which would be quite something. It’s still very early days of their five year plan but they seem to be already catching Yahoo (at least with my blog referrals!) As can be seen above, on one of my blogs over 9% of the traffic is by way of Bing. I must admit that I haven’t used Bing all that much myself to do searches but it has a certain likeability about it. Perhaps it might just be the competition needed to rival Google – well, one day at least. Microsoft says of Bing: Bing is specifically designed to build on the benefits of today’s search engines but begins to move beyond this experience with a new approach to user experience and intuitive tools to help customers make better decisions, focusing initially on four key vertical areas: making a purchase decision, planning a trip, researching a health condition or finding a local business. So what does the word Bing mean? According to Microsoft it’s the ‘the sound of found’ – not too sure about that. Some say it stands for Bing Is Not Google. Whatever it means, a quality search engine to (eventually) rival Google must be a good thing. Good luck, Mike. Golf Jokes and Golf One Liners
