Is Bing gaining traction?

The almighty Google dominates searches, we've known that for awhile, but I have seen an interesting trend in my site analytics across all my websites...Bing is becoming much more prevalent. Google usually accounted for about 75% of my search engine traffic, Bing/MSN was maybe 5%. That's a big way. Bing now accounts for as much as 30% of my search engine traffic on some sites and consistently 20%+. Google has suffered some as a result, but it seems most of it's traction is gained from the other search engines. Either way, this is a bit surprising and curious. Have you experienced the same on your sites?



  1. I've noticed a few more bing searches here and there as well, but not quite as big of a percentage as you have

  2. Bing is the current web search engine from Microsoft it find web pages, definitions, music, encyclopedia entries, and more. Bing adds a spruced-up navigation for search results, including a new left-hand navigation bar, a hover feature that lets users preview Web pages before visiting them, and a categorized search feature that groups search results by topic category.
