Bing October 2009 Search Index Update

Five days ago, we alluded to a possible Bing search index update when Microsoft fixed the issues with the Bing Webmaster Tools and blamed the issue on an "update to the search index." But no Webmasters really made a big stink about an update, so I did not write a single post on that alone.

Now I see WebmasterWorld thread with confirmed reports from real webmasters taking notice of an update on Microsoft's search engine, Bing.

Two senior members noticed the update. Billy S. said:

As I hit the enter key, I'm seeing two completely different SERPS on Bing - almost alternating. Anyone else seeing this?

Textex confirmed Billy's findings saying, "I am seeing different results too. Looks like an update."

The last Bing search index update was some time in August 2009, at least the last one we noticed.

Do you notice a change in your rankings and/or traffic from Bing?
