One Month Old Bing Brags About Success

Over at the Bing Search Blog, they’re sharing a few nuggets of success that Microsoft’s new search product has seen in the first month since launch.

  • Bing Shopping has seen amost 3x increase in site visits
  • Bing Cashback has experienced a 5.42% increase in transactions
  • Bing Travel traffic has increased by 90% month over month since launch. (Remember, it was formerly Live Search Farecast.)

Some advertisers are seeing great things since Bing’s launch:

  • TigerDirect’s sales and order volume has tripled. Both the conversion rate and average order size has increased significantly. Because of this, TigerDirect increased its search marketing spend with Bing by twofold.
  • An IT provider reported 36% higher click volume, 43% lower cost-per-click and 400% higher click-through rates in June.
  • A large wireless communications company received 28% more clicks compared to previous weeks.
  • One PC manufacturer’s (hmmmm) impressions have gone up 46%

The Bing API has been getting some action too. The number of developers using the API has doubled (over the LIve Search API) to more than 11,000.
