...something relatively simple: automatically tailoring search results based on your physical location.

Starting today, we're going a step further with new improvements that take into account where you are and serve locally relevant information directly in the body of the results page.[br][br]Second, we're introducing a feature that helps Bing present the most relevant website based on an individual's previous searches.

86: new post   Google Finds Bing Using Google Serps as Ranking Signal
Bing has been watching what people search for on Google, the sites they select from Google's results, then uses that information to improve Bing's own search listings. Bing doesn't deny this.[br][br]As a result of the apparent monitoring, Bing's relevancy is potentially improving (or getting worse) on the back of Google's own work. Google likens it to the digital equivalent of Bing leaning over during an exam and copying off of Google's test.
