Hi I have shown PPC text ads from Bing (originally Overture and then Yahoo) for the last 11 years. For the past 3 years the ads have been below the fold and minimal. However, with Google now restricting referrer information (obviously to disrupt the effectiveness of competing advertising networks), I wonder whether they are now also actively penalising sites with competitors Ads on?

Just a thought to mull over: if Google rankings improved for sites showing Bing ads then a) they'd lose all their Adwords customers to Bing as this became known and b) quality would be less relevant meaning their organic results get worse, not better.
