Bing’s “Search Wave” Showcases Search Volume For 2016 Presidential Candidates
In preparation for tomorrow's Super Tuesday primaries, Bing rolled out a new tool that determines the top-searched candidates.
Bing is gearing up for tomorrow’s Super Tuesday state primaries with the launch of its new “Search Wave” feature, a search tool that showcases search volume for each of this year’s presidential candidates.

Powered by its Bing Predicts technology, the “Search Wave” feature is part of the site’s broader election experience, which includes candidate pages, a political index and an election timeline. Users can access the tool by searching on Bing for “candidate search volume.“
