Bing Algorithm Update?

SERP volatility and flux monitors say yes!

I noticed a few of my sites had a nice week over week boost from both Bing and Yahoo early this week. Two other sites I manager saw ~15% drop in traffic from Bing and Yahoo. The sites are unrelated, and hosted on different stacks, so I don't think it's a technical issue on our end.

I checked [serps.com...] and they showed a big spike in Bing volatility on May 7th 2014. I also checked [serpmetrics.com...] and they showed +100% in Bing flux on May 5th.

Anyone else seeing >10% delta from Bing/Yahoo?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld Scuba_SEO

That's interesting, thanks for posting.

I asked Bing's Duane Forrester for news and confirmation.

I've seen no shift in traffic from either Bing or Yahoo in the past few weeks.

People in the US may have a tough time comparing this past weekend to previous weekends since it was Mother's Day. Traditionally, at least for my market, traffic drops both days.
