For example, they could collect data on what percentage of visitors to a site bookmark it as a favorite and then return to it again later. THis would be a general indication of how well people like the site, and thus could potentially be used as a ranking factor for Bing SERPs.
Does anyone know if Bing uses visitor behavior in this way?
I'm sure the privacy people would have a thing or two to say about this also :)
I think Bing will be studying user Bahamian, but it will probably be limited to interaction between the serps and destination pages. For example a user clicks from the serp to a page then immediately clicks back, this could be seen as a sign of a poor quality page.
Only MS will know the true extent of what/any user interaction observations they carry out.
