And they are now done :)
It is with great pleasure Id like to share that Yahoo! has completed the algorithmic transition to Bing in all global markets (except Korea), across desktop and mobile, for all Yahoo! and syndication traffic. This has been a huge effort spanning 20-plus months involving many people across Yahoo! and Microsoft. Only Korea, which involves a three-way integration between Yahoo, Microsoft and Daum, remains, and is expected to complete by the end of the year.

Shame their traffic is so small its worthless.

I hope they will put some effort now into promoting themselves in a manner which will attract users. 20 months is all for nothing if no-one gives a monkeys and no-one uses either engine.

I see plenty of traffic from them..... i also love how well their PPC stuff converts!

I don't understand how some people say they don't get squat from bing or yahoo.

do you even have good rankings in those SE's for your keywords?

I have great rankings in Bing but not enough visitors to make it worthwhile at all. Maybe different sectors see visitors but not the ones I cover.

I'm curious, I have pages indexed in Yahoo far more than Bing. So which database they will use to show up in SERPs.

I mean what if the search query match with the page that in Yahoo database but not in Bing. Is my page gonna show up?

so you never ran a yahoo PPC account? both were very good sources of traffic. I used to get more yahoo then bing then they squashed them together and everything just got better.

This is the reason why I lost traffic in Yahoo more than 50%!

So do i need to optimized my site for Bing?

I had over 10 Yahoo accounts in various countries. Still have them except US & Canada which I refereed to when I said "stopped."

Once B & Y merged their PPC things went downhill for some of my campaigns. Bing is too expensive now, and it is far away from what B & Y had as separate entities.
