    Yahoo and Bing are forming an alliance for organic search rankings?


    hi all,

    today i get an email like this:

    "Yahoo will be using Bing as their robot and search engine to determine how our websites will be ranked. this will happen in late August."

    so, if this thing happen, Bing will gains about 30% of search market.
    any body know about this news! do you have any comment on that?

    I haven't heard about that specific detail, but I remember that Yahoo and Bing announced an alliance a while back. I imagine this is one consequence of that.

    Yahoo & Bing have been testing Organic Search since the Beginning of July. Currently about 25% of Organic Search from Yahoo is being Empowered by Bing. Paid Has started the Beginning of Aug and they are testing about 3% of the ads. If seem that the change to Organic is on track but I have received an email from Yahoo this week that they are pushing back the transition date for coping over your paid account to the end of the month. The transition period should be over before the start of q4 if not it might be held back to Q1 2009.

    My personal guess will be that Bing will have about 25 of the search share.

    Okie! thanks Tony for more detail about this news.
    so, it means that we have to spend more time to work on Bing.
    in my point of view, the Agrm between Bing and Yahoo is very difference. the same site, do SEO by the same way. however, the ranking results between these search engine are very difference.
