Wondering if anyone has seen an increase in Bing traffic since windows 10? Users who don't mind which search engine they use, and a few younger users don't seem as google dedicated Googlers as older users have been, might have permitted Bing searches direct from Edge and MSIE11 since installing windows 10.

What do you think?

There's also an extension of the Bing Rewards to new regions, too.
[bing.com...]
That will probably help boost traffic.

Our site gets a paltry circa 5% of visitors from Bing but we don't rank for anything relevant on Bing and haven't yet made any effort to rank there. I wonder if we ranked well what sort of traffic we could expect?

@Mark_A - good assumptions but I haven't seen any increase from Bing Search.

In fact, SE referrals have been declining across my sites for some time; all the while traffic steady, but slowly, increases.

From my experience, traffic from Bing if of a higher quality than from Google. But, it's also much-much low.

Windows 10 was released almost 2 years ago, and rankings on Bing are relatively unstable, for me at least, so it's impossible to tell, really. As for the quality of traffic: also hard to tell :-) Bounce rates seem to be about 15% higher for traffic from Bing and Yahoo, compared to Google, but I'm probably not ranking for the same queries so it's apples and oranges.
