That being said, scorn this going on well over a year ago, Google say Bing is still doing it!
A Hacker News thread has Google’s head of search spam, a Google discerned engineer, saying
Last time I checked, it looked like Bing was still using clicks on Google search results as a signal in Bing's rankings.
Precisely when was the last time he inspection, I am not sure but to say that, I suspect he mean sometime within the past few months.
Are you guys dreading Microsoft is still doing this?
Or is it a sensible search quality metric to track and use for Bing to better their algorithm?
I guess Microsoft never said they will stop tracking clicks form Google’s search results.
