Increased traffic from Bing
18 July 2009
If you've noticed a jump in search traffic from Bing - the new search engine from Microsoft - in the last few days, don't get too excited as it's not real. Bing has started 'faking' search traffic the same way they were doing previously with Live Search.
Nobody really knows why Microsoft does this, but the most likely reason is to make it look like more people are using their search engine. We will be filtering out the 'fake' searches starting today so your traffic reports will return to normal.
