Bing, Microsoft’s search engine that is slated to join forces with Yahoo! later this year, has announced its partnership with e-commerce merchant reviews provider ResellerRatings. The ratings site currently has nearly half a million user-generated reviews of online merchants that will start appearing in Bing’s shopping search results.

The ratings and reviews space is gaining momentum in the e-commerce industry, and ResellerRatings offers merchants the ability to respond to reviews by contacting customers directly and posting public replies. Bing’s newest partner claims that its reviews have influenced more than 10 million purchasing decisions in the past year.

Google announced a similar partnership with Bazaarvoice back in April, when it also said it would be adding other vendors for providing user-generated reviews. ResellerRatings, whose new relationship with Bing is non-exclusive, also now provides reviews for Google Product Search,, and other shopping search sites. Other leading reviews providers include PowerReviews, RatePoint and RateVoice, to name just a few.

This sounds like another set of (sub)set of search engines SEOers will have to optimize for and maybe more important because users are looking for product with they idea they will be able to buy.

Website Magazine's August 2010 issue has an article on Google's RIch Snippets - a way to indicate that reviews/ratings are posted and available on your site. The article will be available from WM subscribers account under the digital archives.
