Bing update?

Did it just happen or has it been a while. Lots of different results for the sites I track.

I am seeing different results for the last week. The results are substantially different. Overall traffic is about the same. But rankings are all over the place.

One of my site for the last two weeks lost 48% in traffic from Bing (higher from Yahoo). Still trying to figure out what keywords were affected. This is a Technorati top 100 blog, and the traffic drop is pretty sizeable. Not affected by Google Panda, though.

Per Bing Webmaster tool, our indexed pages fell from 30,000+ to 13,000+ levels starting June 10. Since then, indexed pages remain at the 13,000 levels.

Comparing June to same period in March, Bing traffic has fallen by 43%

The decrease in indexed pages surely does not help our cause :o(

Even one of my client's site dropped the ranking from 4 to not in index. Is Bing had updated its algorithm?

I'm seeing a drop in my Bing rankings too, by about 12 places - on a site that recovered in Google!

Our site experienced rankings drop in Bing & Yahoo lately for the key head terms in our vertical. I saw our ranking drop from position #1 and #2 to around #8 and #9 for key head terms in Bing & Yahoo, but the same keywords rankings in Google remained stable at #1 or #2.

Hmm weird...

Further to that, while organic traffic usually decreased by around 5% from May to June due to seasonality, our Bing & Yahoo traffic decreased by as much as 25%.

Could this be their own rollout of Panda?
