    Danny Sullivan has the write up on his site, along with Bing's response (which didn't include a denial more like minimizing how much they do it). Google set up some honeypots to catch them. hahaha

    Been fun watching G and B spatting with each other lately.

    This is not good for Bing. They shouldn't have done it.

    Well I had a PPC Ads on Bing with tracking code added so I would know that Bing sent me the traffic and it was a paid listing.

    Guess what, Google is now sending me free traffic with that exact tracking code included in the link!!

    So Google must be using Bing some how as well!!

    Well, basically, they do what Google does:

    "Google thought Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser was part of the equation. Somehow, IE users might have been sending back data of what they were doing on Google to Bing. In particular, Google told me it suspected either the Suggested Sites feature in IE or the Bing toolbar might be doing this.

    This all happened in December. When the experiment was ready, about 20 Google engineers were told to run the test queries from laptops at home, using Internet Explorer, with Suggested Sites and the Bing Toolbar both enabled."

    People have posted this years ago and I tested it out myself back then. Brand new pages where nobody knew about. No pings, no links, no nothing. Then just visiting them with the Google toolbar on, pages got in.
