I stepped back for a bit but wanted to touch base again.
Through last night for the month of July versus July 2009:
Overall traffic is up roughly 25%.
Bing is up 75%
Google down 25%
Yahoo up 10%
But what is most dramatic is the weekly change:
Google up 7%
Bing up 91%
Yahoo up 80%
The ads running for Yahoo are having an effect, soon as they started the visits increased from yahoo. Bing continues to steadily increase share and is now averaging about 20% of search visits per day.
Overall the search results have improved. As others have said the chinese knockoff sites have fallen back but there are still way too many domestic knockoff sites. It's just such a shame that this change did not pick up the filters that blocked individual companies from running 10 or 30 mirrors and profiting from it. It degrades the entire user experience.
