Since June 27th, Bing sales and traffic have shot up. The interesting part is our ranking positions have not changed, it's just as if there are more people searching. Could this be a sign of surfers dumping Google and moving to bing due to the MayDay update?

Anyone else seeing this type of behavior from Bing lately?

Welcome to the forums, Chris - glad you joined us.

Have your Google search traffic and conversions dropped? That might indicate your market is making a switch to Bing. But if not, then something good just happened for you over at Bing. Sorting out the two scenarios might be a very fruitful analysis to take on.

I am getting a lot of traffic from Bing since two weeks ago and its increasing everyday bit by bit. Something is up but whatever it is, I love it.

I'm seeing more visits from Google on my end - around 6,000 a day, up from 4,500 last month.

Our bing traffic has remained stagnant - 50 or so visits a day. We cater to a young adult, tech oriented audience though so I would say it is probably dependent on niche.
