Does Bing/Yahoo throttle traffic?

An odd coincidence

I'm doing my weekly dig into traffic numbers over the past 7 days and noticed the weirdest thing: Traffic from Bing and Yahoo! each hit a ceiling and didn't go higher or lower.

Traffic from the Bing/Yahoo! engine has been growing slowly over the past 4 months but on the 15th, 16th and 17th, traffic from each engine was the exact same (thus creating a straight line on a graph). They are also records for the history of this site.

15.12.12: Bing: 95, Yahoo!: 85
16.12.12: Bing: 95, Yahoo!: 85
17.12.12: Bing: 95, Yahoo!: 85

I've never seen such exact numbers consistently in referrals before, but for three days, both Yahoo! and Bing separately referred the same amount of search visitors to a particular site.

Just some food for thought.

Why worry? Google does the same thing.
