Bing 4th Birthday LogoAs you can see from the design of this site today, we are all decked out celebrating Microsoft's launch of Bing four years ago today.

But that is not why I am writing this story, there seems to be some chatter, again, of a Bing search update. A WebmasterWorld thread has an updated post by Joe Sinkwitz asking:

I'm seeing a lot more movement again today; I thought they solved the subdomain GEO spam mess, but it is back in full force today, resulting in a bunch of legitimate sites getting bumped.

We also saw some chatter about an update a couple of weeks ago. So maybe something is up?

SERPmetrics and SERPs.com do track changes. SERPmetrics always shows a lot of volatility with Bing but SERPs.com seems to show Bing being stable, at least as of yesterday.

Did you notice any ranking changes at Bing or changes in traffic recently? Let us know in the comments.

Oh, happy fourth birthday Bing!

Well congratulations to Microsoft for having bing for continous 4 years. Bing comes under one of the best search engines of the world.

What is this crap. Measuring how often search rankings are updated and calling it volatility? Now we make a more modern search into a bad thing? I fart in your general direction. Get off the stage.

Weird. I was able to get this search to pull up the answer - no problem. Must've just been a glitch.

As the Penguin 2.0 update rolled out, we began to notice some massive changes in how Google treats and handles local results, and bing does also?
