Has Bing Updated?

Something seems to have changed with the Bing results over the last couple of days here in the UK. I used to struggle to rank on MSN search and when Bing launched and since I have checked and we were still on page 2 or 3 for most terms that we are #1 on Google.

Today for all of my main target terms (except one) we have gone in at #1 on Bing. The results below us look very much like Google.co.uk.

Has anyone else noticed a recent change.

Cheers

Sid

I'd not had time to check this in depth, but thanks for the heads up.

Same or marginally better than Google for me.

A little curiosity is a site I run for a friend. She bought the domain, without my advice, from a company that used frames for forwading. G breaks out of the frame and gives the underlying address on my site while B links to the domain but with my actual home page text showing as the sample.

idolw - look up your images in bing image results, you'll see your site shoved into a frame on their site with their sponsored links around it... might help you remember.

Actually, regular pages show up inside frames on bing too if someone clicks on "enhanced view" next to their page in the results. I haven't seen the link next to my sites but it is next to wikipedia listings.

"look up your images in bing image results"

Why would anyone ever want to look up images in Bing in the first place?

It does look like the Bing SERPS have changed in the UK. But it just looks like a reorganisation of the title tag / domain relevance. Nothing indicates any significant change to me.

So, now people will need to see Bing Rankings as well.
I have seen that they send good amount of traffic compared to their earlier product.

Yes, I noticed about 4 days ago that there were some slight shifts in the positining of sites in Bing. I think that they probably updated based on the user activity on the results. For example I had a site that was in position 1 & position 5. And now it's just position 1. Don't think it's Google, its just the good sites are surfacing more strongly than before.

Rubbish.
Bing= Live + Quality + Presentation

And yes, finally I rank in Bing! I was doing badly when it launched. Really pretty badly. Now I'm comparable to Google - especially the current mid-shakeup google SERPs.

Beats me, but I get enourmous traffic from Bing images...Without exaggeration, about 100 times more than from Bing search.

Yes Bing Images are great.
Funny thing is some of my images show up in Bing, but virtually none in Google ?
What gives ?
