Bing July 2009 Update

Not to be outdone by Google, Bing seems to also be updating. I spotted at least three different threads, in three different forums, discussing how these webmasters either had no rankings in Bing prior to the other day and now have excellent rankings or had great rankings and now have poor rankings. This is a clear sign of an update, when you see several different forums discussing this, with so few webmasters actually looking.

The forum threads are at WebmasterWorld, HighRankings Forum & Bing Community thread. Here are excerpts from some of those posts:

Something seems to have changed with the Bing results over the last couple of days here in the UK. I used to struggle to rank on MSN search and when Bing launched and since I have checked and we were still on page 2 or 3 for most terms that we are #1 on Google.

Today for all of my main target terms (except one) we have gone in at #1 on Bing. The results below us look very much like

I was no.1 for my main keyword, and had been there for quite some time. Though I went to show a client an example and searched for my term in bing and now i'm not in the top 200?

Was a bit embarrasing to say the least!

Before a week it was in first page while searched "Tour Operator of Bangladesh" or "Tour Operator in Bangladesh" in Bing. But now it disappears from first page even it is not in second page. Last week backlinks showed 400+ now it shows <350 links.

Have you noticed a major update in Microsoft's Bing search engine?
