What's going on with Bing search results

    Hi all,

    Over the years we see that Google constantly tweaks it's algorithms, but the search results are more or less consistent and predictable. As for Bing - I did not notice many updates and the results usually were like 10 year old SEO techniques still working. Now I noticed that Bing results are completely scattered with low traffic sites on the top (it's localized search). What are your experiences at this point?

    If so, then this forum section may be deleted. In no, then you are posting OT.

    Some smarter people use different sources to look for information. I have visitors from Bing coming to my sites.

    "Smarter people" - that's a good one! :)

    Their numbers keep going down. I will not be surprised if 5 years from now it'll be around 1%.

    Bing is "dancing" less than Google and to be honest, many of the projects that I am working on are getting reasonably good amount of traffic.
    I think you should check Bing Webmaster tools, I noticed that there are some new tools added and might come useful for getting higher rankings.

    I never even considered Bing in my equations. They don’t bring in the traffic like Google does. I did have a couple sites really get the DuckDuckGo traffic tho. Ha. I don’t know how as I had never heard of them before.

    Bing Search is good. It may not bring a lot of traffic to a website as google would, but it all depends on what the client wants.
    There are contents which can easily be found on Bing search than on google.
    Yeah, I noticed last year that many low traffic sites were ranking above high traffic websites with high domain authority.
    Personally I don't see anything wrong with that, in fact is a good thing as it levels the playground for everyone without bias.
    Which means with Bing search, new websites can rank easily and start getting appreciable traffic.

    As to why low traffic websites rank above higher traffic websites for a given keyword, I will really like to know why and how.
