Just noticing a new set of SERP's has been rolled out and so far it looks okay minus the wikipedia domination. Why can't every search engine just put a WIKIPEDIA button in their header and skip the listing in the SERPs? :>~

Bing engineers may need to refine their trust algos. I'm seeing a SERP where Bing is giving a poor quality subdomain a pass because the main domain has a high amount of inbound links (nearly a million). I think Bings method for determining sites likely to be authoritative needs tweaking.

Interestingly, Bing produces another result not seen in the other search engines that is actually pretty good.

Ha. But, no. I like beating out Wikipedia. And I do on G & Y, but, yeah, Bing...

OK, let me go see...
I moved up from 7 to 5 on Bing.
I'm still #1 on Y and G.
Wikipedia is # 1 on Bing, #2 on Y and G.

Likewise. Above me on Bing is a good site and then a very weak one. But, not fair to judge by me right now. We're just finishing a major re-work. We'll see in a few months.

They're actually not too different from Google's results.

It's really amazing that the Bing results for my main site are very similar, in fact in some cases much better then Google.

It reminds me of the Google results back when Google was easier to figure out.

I saw mention in Bing support forums a few months ago that they'd be rolling out a new update, circa October - I guess this may be it.

Has anyone seen any improvements in their Bing webmaster center indexation and stuff?

Bing's results are much more Google-like because they are much more complete now, as a lot of powerful domains get more accurate treatment.

I have not seen it, but perhaps also as martinibuster suggests a pwerful domain that has gained more respect to to more accuurate understanding of the domain is also benefiting from weaker subdomians also getting more respect than they deserve. I think that should probably adjust in the coming weeks though as Bing better analyzes the newly more full recognized powerful domain and sees that the powerful domain actually disrespects its own junky subdomain.

I checked some of the keywords in our industry and I really liked the results. If they don't make crucial mistakes, Bing could be a very good alternative to Google.

they are massively different from G, I'm not seeing it cluttered with its usual list of authority sites dominating all the top terms and for me they are offering a much better "real" results rather than just putting links to newspaper sites & wiki everywhere

the problem is getting joe public to use them, but at least Bill's got a small advertising budget he can use LOL
