Bing Officially Shuts Down Bing Shopping
In 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.
