Bing Teams Up With KAYAK In Travel Search [bing.com]
Today, we’re excited to welcome a new technology partner, KAYAK. Teaming up with KAYAK, a leading innovator in travel search, allows us to provide a more comprehensive travel search experience. In the coming weeks KAYAK will provide flight search results in the U.S. from multiple cities, airports and airlines, giving customers access to a larger set of flight itineraries as they work to plan and book travel on Bing.

For Bing, this means we can focus our development resources on delivering even more unique and valuable features for customers. In essence, this lets us do more for our customers as we continue to invest in next-generation travel experiences.

So what does this mean for customers? It means Bing Travel is getting more powerful and comprehensive when it comes to helping customers plan and book travel. When combined with Bing’s own tools and technologies such as Price Predictor, rate indicator, flexible search tools and Flight Answers, we are really doubling down on giving customers the tools to make faster, more informed travel decisions.

Good move for Kayak. I'll certainly try this. But, then, I've started using both Bing and Google more and more. My conclusion is that, despite reports saying otherwise, the results can vary. Alas, I've seen no increase in my traffic from Bing or Yahoo.

Bing, once again, providing content rather than search results.

No one else has said it so I guess I will. At least Bing is paying for some of the content they're taking.
