Microsoft Bing Testing Coupons In Search Results

Microsoft Bing Shopping has officially added a lot of the features we noticed early such as coupons and promotions, price history, and ethical choice annotations, the company announced.

Coupon Codes in Bing

Bing added coupons and promotions, a lot like you see on those coupon sites (that I am afraid to go to because I always feel they are injecting malware on my computer). Microsoft wrote “if you decide to click in and do some shopping, the coupon will be automatically copied and applied to your purchase. All of this is made possible by quick and easy annotation links found within your search results.” Microsoft said this is now available in US, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, and France.

Yes, we covered this as a test last month.

Price History In Bing

Now, for some products, Bing will show you the price history of the products you are searching for. Bing said they are “adding an annotation that reveals an item’s pricing over time; this handy graph helps determine if it’s the right time to buy. You can feel better about your purchase knowing that the price has recently gone down or may decide to hold off if it was significantly cheaper in the past.” Microsoft said this feature is available across US, Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Australia, and India

I should note, price history was a feature from November 2021 but it has been expanded in this application.

Ethical Choice Annotations

Also, the Ethical Shopping hub expands with new ethical choice annotations in the Bing Shopping results.

Google Internal Menu System Tracks Food Preferences Tweets

A Googler shared screenshots of the output from the Google internal menu system where it told her that one day she avoids salades and then she must have had some salads to correct that and the next day it say she enjoys salad. I am just amazed Google tracks the food Googlers eat and offers suggestions.

Here are those tweets embedded:

Here is the snippet from the earnings report showing that:

Remember, Microsoft reported earnings the week prior and showed slowed growth but still growth. Microsoft Bing Ads grew 10% last quarter.

Here is a look at Google’s earnings numbers for the past 3 years:

You can see that Q4 2021 was higher than Q4 2022!

Ruth Porat, CFO of Alphabet and Google, said: “Our Q4 consolidated revenues were $76 billion, up 1% year over year, or up 7% in constant currency, and $283 billion for the full year 2022, up 10%, or up 14% in constant currency. We have significant work underway to improve all aspects of our cost structure, in support of our investments in our highest growth priorities to deliver long-term, profitable growth.”

Hence the mass Google layoffs to cut costs and increase profit. Keep in mind, Google’s profit was insane – $18 billion, that is $1 billion in profit per week! Sure, Google’s net income was down 34% year over year, so I get Wall Street.
