Microsoft Bing Ethical Shopping Hub Now Live In The US

Last year, Microsoft Bing launched its Ethical Shopping hub in the UK. With Earth Day, Microsoft announced the Ethical Shopping hub is now available in the US and Canada. Plus Microsoft Bing updated the design of the listings on the shopping search results page.

The Ethical Shopping Hub provides consumers and searchers with categories like eco-friendly, upcycled, or fair-trade fashion. Shoppers can also select to browse by ethical fashion brands or products, trending, and featured items, or even grab the latest headlines about informed fashion choices and other planet-friendly news topics, all on one convenient page. These ratings, powered by Good on You®, are an average of the scores for each three focal areas: people, planet, and animals.

Here is a GIF of it in action:

Bing updated the the design of the listings on the Shopping search results page. For example, hover over a listing, and you’ll see not only the overall brand rating for the brand, but the eco-friendly criteria it performs well on. This allows you to easily shop in alignment with your values – if a product being vegan is most important to you, for example, or if its not being recycled is a deal-breaker.

Microsoft also expanded the experience to show up when you search relevant queries on Bing.com. This ensures you can find your way to the Ethical Shopping hub no matter where you are in the Bing ecosystem, from within the Shopping tab or if something sparks your curiosity while you’re searching in general, the company said.

Google Local SAB Search Ranking Bug Fix Rolling Out

A couple of weeks ago we reported on a possible Google local search ranking update that turned out to not be an update but rather a bug. Well, that bug seems to be fixed or being fixed now and rankings are beginning to return for these local service area businesses.

The bug seemed to start being fixed on Friday, September 23rd, in the afternoon.

Local SEO, Jason Brown wrote in the Local Search Forum “Good news, one of my clients got their rankings back. They are back in the map pack, but not in the same number one spot as before.” He also said later “My other client is back ranking again too. Looks like the fix is being rolled out now.”

He shared this chart showing how all the rankings returned:

Joy Hawkins also posted about it on Twitter:

So hopefully this is now fully resolved – at least this specific bug? It may have been related to the Kansas Google local bug.
