Bing just went nuts with traffic to my hubs

    Has anyone else had a sudden surge of traffic from bing.I dont know if its because of a new hub being indexed, but the traffic seems spread across all my hubs. Only top 3 have red arrows.

    Whats the formula.
    Make mental note - try and figure out what to repeat.

    Thanks Ironher and Crazdwriter.

    So far I find that bing is owned by microsoft.Gonna go check the analytics for a while and try track back.

    Found it. I have the same names as a doctor in the states and a college professor type guy who writes a lot of thesis(is this a word).Anyway my profile has been referenced in the search engine. Cool to get some organic traffic even if by accident.

    Sorry guys myth quashed.

      What a relief. I'm also a famous soccer player on the side (NOT) but I get some traffic because of him. LOL

    I read something this AM about Bing getting ready to roll out a major update to their user features, so perhaps they are updating algorithms ahead of that. 

    I've definitely been seeing an increase in traffic from there as more people start to use it.

    Relative to google, Bing takes ages to index.
    Those getting Bing traffic tend to have published hubs a long time ago.
    I would not be too worried as a new user if I did not see any bing traffic for months and months. It will get there... eventually
