"Not Provided" Continues to Grow

  • Renee Reply

    It's been a year since "not provided" began frustrating analysts. It's impacting more results than originally predicted by Google.

    Danny Sullivan:
    "If Google’s withholding were an eclipse, more than half the sun is being covered. 'Dark Google' is upon us, and it will only grow darker."

    Wonderful - I understand they don't want people gaming the system but businesses need to know how people are finding them. I sure hope Bing gains more market share. Speaking of which, has anyone taken the Bing Challenge yet?

    Just took the Bing Challenge, looks like I picked Google 4/5 times.

    I've taken it a few times and tied every time. Know two other people who've taken it and they preferred Bings results... interesting!

    I effing hate photobucket. I am part of their beta test team for the new release and it is HORRIBLE. I have resized it 4 times and every single time I post it, it's this big.

    Working on it
