Just in time for the opening round of the NFL playoffs (coughGOSEAHAWKS!cough), Bing has followed through on its plans to integrate ticket inventory from FanSnap into its search results. This FanSnap integration was first announced as part of Bing’s December search event.
FanSnap isn’t a ticket seller; it’s one of several ticket aggregators that displays ticket availability, stadium maps, seating charts and more. We profiled FanSnap briefly in late 2008. It collects ticket listings from StubHub, eBay, Ticketmaster’s TicketExchange, and other secondary ticket market sources.
The FanSnap integration is available under the “Events” tab, which can be somewhat difficult to get to. A search for “seattle seahawks” alone doesn’t show the Events tab, but seattle seahawks tickets works. You can click the Events tab up top or the listings that appear in the search results to access the new ticket data. A couple screenshots are included below.
