Why We Care
Bing pages display search results similar to a panel of knowledge in Bing and provide brands with an additional way to manage their online presence. They can use it to aggregate their links to social networks, publish their contact details and personalize their Outlook profiles with images and content. "[Bing Page owners] may also promote social media posts in relevant search results – at no cost", the FAQ reads. Search Engine Land contacted Microsoft for more details.
Bing Pages has a relatively simple and unlimited registration process. This can help increase adoption among small brands and small businesses.
