  1. Hi Jack,
    Thanks for sharing this on Twitter. Something is wrong and they know about it. It seems to me that they are trying to avoid some kind of lawsuit by staying mum.

    And why other SEOs are not talking about this is weird! I haven’t noticed any of the the big SEO bloggers talking about this.

  2. Thank you for stopping by. It was when I was searching for news about this that I came across your Tweets. I think you are right: they are staying mum to avoid any legal claims. I find it curious Reddit would block me from telling people about this, too.

    It makes me wonder if some of the big SEO bloggers even know what they’re talking about. This is pretty big news.

  3. I will say that 8-9 out 10 of the SEO gals and guys are full of shit. They don’t know anything and just rewrites what Google already said on their search central blogs.

    Super odd that all these guys and gals who are “gurus” haven’t written blogs or twitted about this.

  4. DuckDuckGo used to rely heavily on Yandex for site:domain.com search results. DDG cut their association with Yandex this year due to the War in Ukraine, so I wonder if that had something to do with it?

    Still it is disturbing that Bing is letting their index shrink. Thanks for pointing that out.

  5. Hi Brad, my pleasure, and thank you for your comment. I remember when Duck Duck Go pulled from Yandex as well. So I’d say you’re absolutely right. Do you remember what month they cut their ties?

    I never used Bing before I started investigating what had happened to Duck Duck Go (which we used for internal searches). I just took a look now, and Yandex’s site: search is really good.
