MSN Cashback Shows Promising Growth Trend

7th Oct 2008 News, Industry News Less than a minute to read

We reported back in May (MSN Cashback – The Future of Search?) that Microsoft had launched its new Cashback scheme for US searchers.

As a reminder, this is Microsoft’s way of rewarding searchers who make purchases online through Live Search.

Without exaggerating it’s performance, Hitwise have just published research that shows that MSN Cashback is showing good growth with it accounting for 6.29% of traffic to live.com compared with just 3.75% eleven weeks ago.

This has to be seen in context with Google clearly dominating the US search landscape with 70% of all searches and Microsoft’s properties way down in third place with 5.4%. Still, this model will be an interesting one to monitor in future months, given the economic climate, as online shoppers look to the Internet to bag a bargain!

    Why Bing is a Valuable Paid Media Platform

    For a long time, Bing, the UK’s second-largest search engine, has been underappreciated and, in some instances, even ignored.  Often regarded as the inferior search engine to market leader Google, Bing has historically struggled to appeal to many in the digital world. Most PPC analysts would give justified reasons for neglecting Bing for so long; these include the volume of traffic and the user experience just not matching up to Google. However, the validity of these assessments is now diminishing. Bing has grown and improved rapidly in the last couple of years; if you are not integrating it into your comprehensive digital marketing plan, you run the risk of missing out on a large portion of your chosen market and significant revenue.

    The Psychology Of Colour In Marketing

    When it comes to building a content marketing campaign, it can be difficult to know where to start. You may have an initial idea but bringing it to life and getting your message seen are always harder than initially thought.
