'This is an exciting week for Bing as we reach another major milestone in the Yahoo! and Microsoft Search Alliance. This week, Bing will begin powering organic search results on Yahoo! Search for the English language in the United States and Canada.

After this organic transition is complete, Bing will power 5.2 billion monthly searches, which is 31.6 percent of the search market share in the United States and 8.6 percent share in Canada.1 You can take advantage of this traffic by using search engine optimization (SEO) to complement your search campaigns and boost the visibility of your business. Bing webmaster tools can help you troubleshoot the crawling and indexing of your site, submit sitemaps, and view statistics about your sites—all to improve your visibility on Bing. Get started by visiting the Bing Toolbox or watching our video. '

Bing is better than it has been but is still inferior imo. Too many fluff article pages.

Latest on the Yahoo! and Microsoft Search Alliance:

Yup. Seems to have taken place here on the east coast usa. Kind of sad. But, before anyone else says it--G need real competition. Good luck to Y/B. (Or is it B/Y? or BY or b-y or y-b, or y+b, or ...)

The change was strange for us. Y! (POwered by Bing) brings us about as much traffic as pure Bing now. Our traffic should have increased slightly, instead it decreased slightly.

For the past 2 years Yahoo took a deep breath of ranking our site for very important keywords, Now with B/Y traffic 300% up!

Time to launch them 4 keyword-reach domains I was stitting on...
