Bing Officially Shuts Down Bing Shopping

bing-shopping-featuredIn August, Microsoft announced they will close Bing shopping. Bing replaced it with Product Search, which simply integrates product results within Bing search results rather than in a separate destination.

Today, if you try to go to the Bing Shopping destination, i.e., bing.com/shopping — you are redirected to Bing’s home page.

Bing is using a 301 redirect, so this is a very permanent change.

Merchants who want to be included in Bing Product Search can do so both with paid an organic, non-paid, ways.

For more details, see our story from August.

    Anyone know when they will do a proper Bing Shopping in the UK?

    Makes sense, but it was cool to have a dedicated place just for shopping results, I guess. These days, though, search engine shopping is not always useful as Amazon usually has low prices anyways :)
