@dickbaker exactly. Our competitors are listing 100 products as "related" per page to jam the brand name in there and Google seems clueless that this is not user friendly and is really just a new way to keyword stuff. 3-10 products are related, 75 is just keyword jamming.
@aspd the day hasn't ended yet but comparing today to the same day last month (which works well for our business), google is down 9%, Bing up 40%, Yahoo up 80%. Proportionally Bing is far larger than Yahoo but the numbers have never, ever been seen before by us.
It's a quantum shift that started towards the end of April. 3 months ago non google search engines were under 10% of our daily volume which includes directs. It will likely end up near 25% today. That's staggering to me and tells me our user base in the corporate world is finding the same stuff we are finding here.
