|Dear Bing Webmaster User,
Your Bing Webmaster Tools data just got more powerful!
Yahoo! Data now included in your account!
The Bing Webmaster team is pleased to announce the integration of Yahoo traffic data into Bing Webmaster Tools reports. Bing Webmaster Tools will now be showing integrated data from Yahoo within certain areas and reports.
The short list of areas you will notice changes in are as follows:
On the Traffic Tab: Traffic summary report and Page Traffic reports will be impacted as follows:
Impressions – will go up based on combined data numbers across both search engines
Clicks – will go up based on combined data numbers
Click Through Rates (CTR) as appropriate for above (change only due to the mathematics involved in the first two items)
No actual rankings will be affected by the combining of data within Bing Webmaster Tools.
As a visual reminder that data is now combined, you will see both the Bing and Yahoo logos directly above the graphs shown on these pages. At this time the data will be combined, not selectable. The data will also update in any market where Bing is powering Yahoo search.
For the month of August, accounts will note the changes in data numbers between the 12th and the 16th. September will be the first full month of combined data.
