Find it Faster with Bing Product Search
Harnessing the depths of our index encompassing tens of millions of individual products and trained by advanced machine learning, Bing will now show you relevant products directly in the main results page. You no longer need to waste time navigating to a dedicated “shopping” experience to find what you’re looking for. Based on your intent, we’ll serve the best results.
For example, if you are in the market for a new camera. Simply enter “dslr camera” and you will see a category snapshot with the top dslr cameras. You might have heard about a specific Canon model, you click on the <Canon EOS 6D> and you will see our new Carousel so you can quickly browse other related products that might be of interest and then narrow down the selection that best meets your needs. We’re also bringing the power of our industry leading Snapshottechnology to expose more of the details you need for a specific product, like specs and reviews, to make a decision without having to click to another page.
If you want to purchase the product, we present you with two easy options. First, product pricing and availability directly from the merchant themselves will appear right inside search results in what we call Rich Captions. So if Target, for example, has the product you’re looking for, and that link appears in search results, Bing will show you their price and availability information. Another way Bing helps is through new product ads with photos and pricing that provide you the ability to quickly see offers from merchants across the web.
