Microsoft Bing Live

June 1, 2009

I noticed search referrals coming from Bing today in my WordPress logs.

At first glance, it seemed like Bing was sending an inordinate amount of referrals for a Beta product.

After further investigation, it appears Bing is now Live worldwide.

With Microsoft’s official launch of Bing, MSFT also began an attempt to reposition the search process as something more than search by calling Bing a “decision engine”. Microsoft then directed all initial interest in Bing to DecisionEngine.com.

DecisionEngine.com has a video demonstration of Bing features while Live.com now redirects to Bing.com.

MSN.com is also showing a Bing preview box on its home page.

WordPress Domain Change and Google Indexing Issues

March 7, 2009

On January 28, 2009 I moved my several year old blog to a new domain while still hosting the site at WordPress.

In addition to the blog no longer being picked up by Google blog search or Technorati, the new domain hasn’t had any new posts crawled or indexed by Google since switching domains.

I verified the site with Google as suggested several weeks ago yet still no luck.

On the other hand, I haven’t verified the new domain with Yahoo or Microsoft Live.

Yet both Yahoo and Live are crawling and indexing my new blog domain address hosted at WordPress.com.
