Bing has replaced MSN - Hope the Keyword Tracker is updated

Discussion in 'Keyword Tracker' started by CanadianEh, Jun 2, 2009.

  1. #1
    Microsoft made bing.com available to everyone. After a quick look it appears that their results are better than Live/MSN ever was. Unfortunately, the MSN results stopped working on the Keyword Tracker.

    Does anyone know if the tracker will be updated?

    It is a little sad to lose MSN or Bing rankings, but since
    my referrals from Bing are sandwiched between Google India
    and Google Australia it isn't going to affect my business
    decision making any.

    Same here, my MSN rankings havent worked for a few weeks actually.
    Google analytics now lists Bing instead of MSN.

    In the DigitalPoint options you can specify the name of a script on your own server that can be accessed to include MSN and Yahoo results. You can make a change to this script and Bing should start providing rankings.

    Look for this line in the script:
    $data = get_page ('search.msn.com', '/results.aspx?q=' . urlencode ($_REQUEST['q']) . '&first=' . $start . '&count=10&format=rss');
    Code (markup):
    and replace 'search.msn.com' with 'www.bing.com' (NB: the www. is important). This works for me.

    Good luck.

    I was really inspired for a bit. Unfortunately, the solution did not work for me.

    in ecommerce the traffic is roughly 18% from yahoo, and 10% from google. Bing is definately sharing 30% of ALL search traffic with yahoo. These are the numbers i'm seeing, anyone else verify or dispute?

    That fix works great, thanks!
    One point though:

    If you're copy and pasting the code, make sure you change the curly apostrophes to straight ones, or else it won't work.
    EG
    change this : ’
    to this: '

    Small difference, but significant!
