    One thing you didn’t noticed,
    if you installed a Brothersoft-downloded software, their toolbar sets the default search provider and inbuilt-search to Bing.
    Most of my friends dunno how to set it back so they started a love with Bing.

    Not only Firefox, of course: the Gorg was the default SE on IE, Chrome, Safari/Webkit, Opera, Camino… and what else? So as for “buying traffic”, this is certainly nothing new.

    Thank you for digging further into this – but why not mention that Matt Cutts broke this story on Google Buzz?

    This is completely a sketchy ploy. By being an affiliate, although Bing doesn’t directly tell companies to do this, I’m sure they endorse it. After all, the more conversions Make My Baby gets, the more successful they are in the end. It’s unfortunate that Facebook was drug into this whole predicament when they had nothing to do with. It will also be interesting to see if there are more affiliates…I mean…publishers…out there pulling the same move.
