    Bing SERPs looking more like Google SERPs?

    Is anyone else noticing their Bing SERPs slowly becoming more aligned with Google's or is it just my sites?

    Yes, I noticed that too. However, the traffic I receive is still incomparable.

    I'm not seeing it here.

    Check the silly Bing results for proxy.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    I honestly think Bing is pretty accurate, and the biggest reason that they are not beating Google in search traffic is because what people are 'used to'.

    Accurate based on what criteria? What are people used to?

    Accurate as in if I type in 'owl facts', I'm going to get a nice list of sites that have owl facts. Accurate means that you can find the information you are looking for. Some people seem to be under the impression that accurate means how close you can make your search match Google's.

    I really do not see a similarity for search results. My site, on page one on Google for one keyword, is still on page 7 in Bing.

    I also noticed changes in Bing's algorithms, particularly being more active than when they were still MSN Live.

    You are right. It looks like MS is backward engineering the algo. For the results I'm watching the top three pages are as much as 70% similiar. But with the results jumbled. The 1st page results are 50% similiar.

    The results seem to be more information-based, than resource-based (i.e. first few results for "proxy" tell you what a proxy is on Bing, first few results for "proxy" show you some proxies on Google).
