    Question What percent of your overall traffic is from Bing?

    Microsoft has clearly shaken up the world of search with the introduction of Bing at the beginning of June. There is now a new search alternative for users, and there are a number of folks who have expressed very positive comments about Bing in the thread www.gpwa.org/forum/gotta-love-bing-182124.html.

    So for this week's poll I'd like to ask what percent of your traffic currently comes from Bing? And be sure to post in this thread how the level of traffic you are receiving from Bing is changing over time and how it compares with traffic from other search engines.

    For the first couple weeks of July the percent of overall traffic Casino City received from Bing was 8.51% as compared with 29.23% from Google and 14.05% from Yahoo.

    And the percent of traffic from Bing versus Google is on the increase. In fact, on Casino City we've seen the relative traffic from Bing/MSN versus Google increase 70% over the last six weeks.

    My percentage = 0.0000% precisely!

    I first encountered Bing about 6 weeks back when I upgraded to ie8; I did a search on there for something... and got ZERO results. Did the exact same search on Google - 1000's of results.
    What is the point of a search engine which does not search?

    My gathered traffic from Bing so far is just the same as the old Live traffic stats.

    Positively, at least I have traffic from them compare to Yahoo.

    For the current month most of my organic traffic is coming Bing, 38 percent holding the top stop. Last month Bing was second Google first for SE traffic.

    Really this was not expected and am a fair bit shocked.

    Bing and Yahoo combined make up approximately 10% of my traffic. Each has a 5% share.
    I continue optimizing for Google, any results from Bing or Yahoo are completely by accident and considered as bonuses in my eyes.
