Bing Algorithm Ranking Update? Bing Says Nothing Out Of The Ordinary.

I spotted a rare forum post at WebmasterWorld from an SEO that noticed significant ranking and indexing changes at Bing. It is rare to see an SEO talk about this stuff with Bing and then it is rare to see others chime in. So I asked Frédéric Dubut from Bing who said "nothing out of the ordinary" has happened recently there.

Google Dominates US Paid Search – Can It Be Toppled?

In Q4 2018, Google accounted for 92% of all paid search clicks and 94% of all paid search ad spend in the U.S. for Merkle advertisers. That dominance is even greater on mobile devices, as Google click and spend share on phones amounted to 97% and 98%, respectively, in Q4. Now it’s certainly the case that some advertisers see Bing Ads and Yahoo Gemini ( ) accounting for a greater share of clicks and ad spend than the average Merkle advertiser, but independent parties like indicate a similarly ...

No Google Logo On President's Day However Bing & Yahoo Do Celebrate

Today is President's Day in the United States of America. Banks, the post office and some businesses are closed today to celebrate. And Bing and Yahoo have special logos or themes on their home page to honor the past Presidents. Google, however, does not, which is honestly nothing new but makes me scratch my head every year.

Political Advertising Guidelines for PPC Platforms

Ad platforms have been thrown into the forefront of scrutiny in recent years, resulting in stricter policies regarding political advertising. If you’re managing a political PPC campaign, whether promoting a candidate or an advocacy group, you should be aware of how each of the major platforms handles political ads. You’ll likely run into much greater limitations than the average campaign you manage, and should know up front what extra approval processes you’ll need to go through and where you c...

Bing Strongly Recommends Publishers Use The Submit URL Tool

Last week we reported that Bing expanded their submit URL tool from 10 URLs per day to 10,000 URLs per day, removing essentially all the quotas. The shocking part in that announcement was that they seemed to want to do away with crawling as a strategy for getting web pages into their index.

Yoast To Add Live Indexing With Bing & Google

Joost de Valk announced at YoastCon that the popular WordPress plugin, Yoast SEO, will provide live indexing with both Google and Bing starting next month. I'll be honest, I am a bit confused on how this will work with Google but I assume with Bing - they are working with their new submit URL API.

The BIG List: Tons of Scripts to Save You Tons of Time

Scripts have been available in Google Ads since 2012 and have become an account automation staple since then. In November 2018, Bing Ads made this handy feature available as well. Since Bing Ads scripts are still in Beta, some account elements are supported, like bids and budgets, but there are still some . I thought it’d be helpful to provide a walkthrough of how to set these up in Bing Ads and provide an updated big list of scripts, all of which can be used in Google Ads and some of which c...

Yesterday at SMX West, I did a panel named Man vs Machine covering algorithms versus guidelines and during the Q&A portion, I asked the Bing reps Frédéric Dubut and Nagu Rangan what percentage of the core ranking algorithm is AI or machine learning based. To my surprise, they guessed over 90%.

Unhappy AdWords Advertiser’s Lawsuit Partially Survives Motion to Dismiss–Dreamstime v. Google

Dreamstime sells stock photos. It started running Google AdWords in 2004. In 2015, Google organic (?) referrals to Dreamstime “plummeted,” allegedly reducing its number of new customers by 30% in a year.  (The opinion isn’t crystal-clear that the traffic drop was only organic). In response, Dreamstime took many of the standard steps to rehabilitate its search reputation, plus it increased its AdWords spend by 50%. According to the complaint, “no one, including ‘guru’ search engine optimization c...

The Godfather, a First Google Employee, Steve Ballmer and Microsoft

--> A few years ago, I had dinner with one of Google’s first employees. How he joined Google was a long and convoluted story that had more elements of luck than I can ever recount. He’d been working in a midsized town in relative obscurity and at a fairly low level when, through a series of making the right choices and one random string of events after another, he was hired at Google. Early, early Google. He found himself sitting in a room with less than 15 people who were Google’s first employe...

Mark Zuckerberg is ordering Facebook employees to make big changes to the way the company's most popular apps work, connecting WhatsApp, Instagram, and Messenger

Mark Zuckerberg has tasked Facebook employees to reconfigure its messaging services WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram so users can communicate across the platforms, The New York Times reports. The apps will continue to operate as three standalone platforms, but would be unified by an "underlying messaging infrastructure" that includes end-to-end encryption for the entire "family" of Facebook-owned apps, according to the Times. These proposed changes have reportedly caused unrest within the co...

Microsoft's Bing search engine returns to China just a day after users reported outages

Microsoft search engine Bing is available for use in China after it was temporarily blocked by the Chinese government.  Since Google was blocked in 2011, Bing has been the only search engine from a non-Chinese company still accessible to Chinese citizens. China's strict censorship policy, which has earned the name "the Great Firewall," has blocked citizen access to several prominent social media platforms and websites for news outlets.
