Bing - Adding Search History To Auto Suggest

Posted on 9:32 AM by Daily SEO Updates


The Bing Search Blog has announced that from now onwards, your query history will be part of its search autosuggestion feature. It means, Bing does not only analyze your usual search behavior based on previous searches but now will it will use your actual previous searches to suggest search terms for your current search. In a post on it's search blog, Bing says “ 44% of non-navigational search session lasts longer than 1 week,” meaning that the inclusion of previous searches in auto-suggest adds to the convenience of searching similar queries/topics over time.

This can be a significant search feature if you use Bing often. For recurring searches you will not have to retype the whole search strings anymore because Bing will pull out your prior searches and suggest them to you. To make search suggestion that is based on your search history, Bing is even coloring them purple, same as the standard color of visited links on web pages. The usual Bing auto suggest terms are still in color blue text.

Of course, there is a warning here when it comes to user privacy. Therefore to protect your privacy, Bing is has a suggestion that you turn History off any time that you feel sou need to. You can even selectively remove any part of your search history through the Manage History option of your browser's Bing settings.
