Bing's Been Busy
Microsoft’s search engine Bing was the subject of several announcements in March that will impact countless businesses on the Web. Most recently, Bing confirmed the launch of its instant search feature that it had been promising since the arrival of Google Instant last fall. Prior to that a partnership between the search engine and travel search aggregator Kayak was announced, and just hours before that was Bing’s entry into the daily deals space via a partnership with another aggregator, The Dealmap. Perhaps most interesting is the fact that Microsoft has opted for outside technologies to drive Bing in the local deals and travel search categories.
