Bing RegionalWebmasterWorld administrator, engine, feels Bing has upped the weighting of local domains and how well they rank in the localized version of Bing search. He posted this at WebmasterWorld saying:

When using bing uk i'm noticing uk domains getting prominence over generally better ranked and better linked .com, despite being hosted in the uk.

So I used my umbrella query and tested Bing US vs Bing UK and I saw the same thing. Here are those results:

Bing US Bing UK
umbrellas.com wikipedia.org
umbrellas.net simplyumbrellas.co.uk
totes-isotoner.com umbrellaheaven.com
umbrellas-source.com brolliesgalore.co.uk
wikipedia.org discardedumbrellas.com
strombergbrand.com umbrellaworld.co.uk
mjjsales.com umbrellas.net
peerlessumbrella.com allgoodideas.co.uk
target.com fultonumbrellas.com
amazon.com easy-umbrella.co.uk

Have you noticed this?
