To further improve search results, the search engines are consistently releasing new updates and features to help searchers get the most out of their searches. Staying on trend, Bing has just announced the beta release of Linked Pages.
In a nutshell, Linked Pages was created in order to improve the relevancy of people search results served up by the Bing algorithm. Bing describes this new feature as a way for you to “make a good impression in search results.”
For some people with unique names, for instance, Sarah Lokitis, it may be pretty easy to see which results mean my friend Sarah Lokitis. If someone were to do a search on a more popular name such as, Amanda Chaney, there are a quite a few other people out there with the same name, including a surgeon, actress, and a felon. If Sarah were to do a search on my name, this new feature would be helpful to her since she only has one friend on Facebook with the name Amanda Chaney.
