Hi Barry thanks for these updates as you had mentioned Matt had made two points Expect a 15% reduction in rich snippets showing in the search results, but why? Is there any specific reason for it. Agree with the second point but what if your company in dealing with huge number of products and services and have many pages relevant to them? Or he is making it clear that make your online presence short and sweet that is easily consumed by audience! And like you many have started liking Bing.........
