Bing’s Traffic now surpasses Digg, Twitter and CNN

Search Engine Marketing with Bing

Ever since Bing’s successful first week launch based on its search engine capabilities it has given Google a scare with positive reactions from the online community. A lot us us thought that the traffic was high in the first few weeks because of the initial product launch.

Lets see where Bing stands after a month, according to Compete, Bing is now the 13th most visited site on the web with 49.57 million unique visitors in its first month as Microsoft’s official search engine. Bing’s traffic was higher than that of Digg (38.96 million) Twitter (23 million), and CNN (28.54 million). This number are only US visitors, since Compete only track US online data.

Interestingly Bing has now surpassed Live.com, its predecessor, which actually garnered 79.4 million visits in June. This can mostly be attributed to the fact that a lot of Microsoft services, most notably Hotmail, are on the Live domain.

Bing is showing some solid numbers and growth for its first month in existence and Microsoft’s spend in seach engine marketing for the year will help in consolidating its growth and postion. Still, it’s got a long way to go before it can begin to challenge Google’s top position in search engine marketing race.

    Probably that’s a short term phenomenon as people are curious to know what’s different in this new search engine. I get two or three visitors from bing these days but I didn’t find this search engine very exciting.

    I can’t believe Bing had so much more traffic than Twitter! Google must be sweating. That is significant growth they should be proud of.

    Good post. For Now Bing seems to be giving them all a run for their money. It will be interesting to see where they are in the standings in the next few months.

    I agree with Ajith, it’s because of people want to see what’s new in the latest search engine. Anyway, me too had 2-3 traffic from Bing at the first 2 days of its’ launch, but no more now. But it’s good to see their achievement, let’s see what happen after a few months later.

    Regards,

  • UPrinting July 10, 2009, 12:14 am

    How interesting! I can’t believe the sudden jump in the site traffic, how amazing. It would be interesting to see and observe though if this can hold out for Bing over the next months. If they manage to maintain the traffic then that could be a good judge that the site will hold out, unlike its predecessor. Google is probably holding their breath and will gauge if Bing is well on its way to grabbing some percentage of Google’s audience share.

  • kitchen taps July 10, 2009, 2:38 am

    Yes, thats what i like the most about Bing. The result of images are just amaging of bing and thats also true that it is growing nowadays but google is the best for me and bing has to wait for beating google.

  • Stop Motion July 10, 2009, 12:53 am

    Gr8 !! Bing offers better indexing as well as page preview option that will make them more popular they have good local business listings with good custom map facilities.

    Bing has been developing greatly and Google may lose its position,because time flies quickly and everything changes in this world.

  • Paul Nathan July 10, 2009, 10:45 am

    Well this is shocking, but this could be possible, it may be a short term phenomena as people are curious to know about new searching engines and they are just moving to that side, we all remember since April 2007, Microsoft has been sending weird referrals to many webmasters. They were known as internal cloaking tests designed by Microsoft’s search quality team. But even though they promised to cool it with those visible tests, it came back time and time again.

    We have no word from Microsoft on this as of yet, but I am a bit suspicious of all these recent search share reports.

  • Website Marketing Joel July 10, 2009, 11:22 am

    Wow, those are incredible stats. They have really done a great job at marketing their search engine. Hopefully they can hold on to these noticeable improvements – it will be interesting to see. Google needs to setup a defensive as well by implementing new features to show their quality.

  • Kourtney July 10, 2009, 2:53 pm

    I’m not sure how I feel about Bing just yet. Google has been such a force in the past that I can’t predict how well competitors will do. Time will tell, however, if the rising popularity of Bing is being caused by the hype of its newness or if it actually is a good search engine.

    Dear Mr Nathan and Others,

    I have Talked to Many of my Friends … and They all say that ..The Crawling Activity of Microsoft is Much Much Less than Google… So How can it Index Pages from Their Site … Esp. Its True for Medium to Small Sites with Fewer Links !!

    Now Just Look for Site:www.webtrafficroi.com on Google … You will Get just 416 INDEXED Pages.

    After That Just Search http://www.webtrafficroi.com on BING…
    And You will get “SHOCKED”….
    BING Shows “EXACT REPLICA” of Pages Indexed By Google.

    Now, Its Upto Webmaster of This Site to CROSSCHECK … whether Any Microsoft(msn) BOT has Ever Crawled your Website Significantly.

  • Sam from Managed Hosting July 13, 2009, 9:37 am

    Interesting stuff. I’ll be interesting to see if bing usage continues to rise or whether it falls back down after these initial results. Personally I’d be very surprised if they can get anywhere close to competing with Google, although they could push Yahoo.

    Easier to optimise for Bing than Google, so good in a way if their popularity rises.

  • Seaward July 14, 2009, 3:27 am

    I think Bing is the biggest contender of yahoo and Google.

  • neeshu July 16, 2009, 11:41 am

    Bing is doing great for SEO’s. Yahoo is too slow to index your site and google take years to place you at top position.

  • used tires July 23, 2009, 1:50 am

    I like what I am hearing about Bing, increasing it’s visitors, I hope it does continue to grow, and I hope it can do the hardest thing of all… retain it’s new users that it has gotten. I only hope for Bing’s success because I think we need a new challenger in the Search Engine World, even if Bing may not be better than Google, it Would still be fun to see Bing challenge Google. Although the hardest thing it will have to overcome is that everyone uses the word “Google it” when they refer to doing a search online in the real world, hehe.

    Till then,

    Jean

  • christian louboutin July 24, 2009, 1:42 pm

    I am daily checking the traffic that i get from BING its increasing Hope some good amt of users are using and soon it might increases

  • seo services August 4, 2009, 2:09 am

    Probably people are using bing.com to search because they think it’s new and they are trying to get better results than google.

  • Sam from Managed Hosting August 4, 2009, 3:46 am

    If people are trying to get better results than they get in Google, then it shows that Google isn’t as perfect as some people seem to think. I think there’s still plenty of improvement that coould be made in search so an opportunity to Bing.

    However, I still don’t think they’ll be able to catch Google.

  • Ruri@Free article submission August 11, 2009, 9:49 pm

  • Dan Calls September 2, 2010, 12:24 pm

    Frankly, Getting traffic is one things and getting returning traffic to SE is one thing. Bing have to increase faith and popularity is searches as Big G haves.

    I hope It will overcome Yahoo some day. But Big G is still far away. I still belive twitter will overcome it sooner or later, as it is emerging as best current search update engine.

  • Cheap Voip Calls September 28, 2010, 4:12 am

    But since this happen Twitter has overcome Bing. Digg has gone further down. One has to come up with more web 4.0 thoughts and quick search results as Big “G” doing now a days.

  • Jobs in India September 30, 2010, 4:19 pm

    I am really surprised because Google is still the best when it comes to the search results and you mostly find your desired result in top 3 4 results… Surprised that people are still giving Bing a chance, even when Google is just getting better and better…
