  1. Review algorithm for local star ratings,

    Hello, I work with an SEO Agency, and I recently noticed that one of our clients is showing in the Bing Local listing as having 3 stars (based on reviews from Foursquare and Porch.com). However, this client has no reviews less than 4 stars on Porch, or anywhere on the internet for that matter. As you know, the visual of 3 stars is a psychological deterrant for a searcher -- seeing 3 stars makes a searcher look elsewhere. I could absolutely understand if the company indeed had a 2-3 star average, but with this not being the case, this is…

    • For Bing Places for Businesses, please add an hours option for 'By Appointment Only'

      Bing Places for Businesses does not currently have a "By Appointment Only" option for hours, which leaves me, a business owner, in a sticky situation. I have to decide between putting up a set of hours that would be completely incorrect, or not putting up any hours and then jeopardizing my ranking in search results. Having the option to choose 'By Appointment Only' would rectify both of those situations.

      • Would like to see bing provide more detailed results /response with regard to Sea information.

        Weather app does not show day to day local information regarding Seas and Tides. If you want to know if Sea levels are 2-4 ft or higher or choppy it requires more research. Same if you want to find out when it is high or low tide for today ( or any other day). Searches currently present lists of links that may or may not be relevant for my area. This may not be an interest of someone living in Nevada but a significant portion of the US population resides on or near water. Also Beach conditions (healthwise) may or…

        • Have the option to mark location as "Moved" instead of just "Closed"

          Please have the option to mark location/s as "Moved" instead of just "Closed". There are some businesses wherein they have moved and doesn't want their businesses to be marked as closed.

                        • Add local tv schedule to bing as a preview search.

                          I would like to quick search tonights listings for tv without going to each local network or the paper. They are listed in the local paper and it would not be that difficult to aquire and list with a network click or live link.

                            • Cricket

                              If Bing (and therefore Cortana) fully embraced Local trivia questions like for example in cricket..."who scored the first test century in cricket" or questions like "who was the chief minister of andhra pradesh in the year 1963" ... you would attract more users to use bing. This is will be extremely useful for the general public and can increase bing usage just by word of mouth.

                                • Integrate real-time local event search functionality in your search results, similar to Wyndow.com.

                                  Current Bing search results for local entertainment, events, activities or things to do all give pages of text and blue links.

                                  I'd love for my search experience on Bing to feel more like Wyndow.com, where a carousel of events based on time/date/location are displayed instead.

                                  • Nearby Restaurants

                                    If I know what I want to eat, allow me to find that specific food, or type of food, and provide me with pictures, price comparisons and ratings. Wait times, distance to location, overall menu, would also be handy.

                                    • On Bing Local search business markers on maps.

                                      Taxi company listed 3 times on Bing local has moved markers for other businesses to manipulate search engine . I'm Auburn Twin City Taxi and my marker was moved to the next city Opelika . My friends KGM Taxi Also was moved out of area . They need to be moved back to their proper locations within the Auburn city limits . and locked into place so that the competition won't fool with it ..thank you Jose Correa.. You can reach me at twincitytaxi@gmail.com .. or @334-246-9999

                                      • Add an API for BIng Places

                                        A number of companies have asked for an API to check the details of a business in Bing Places or to see if it is even there. They want to be able to go through and verify that Bing Places has their location data programmatically rather than having to manually go through all the location data.
