  1. 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.

    • Improve local search

      Add better suport for local search; it's the only reason I hate bing, on computer or my lumia; I want local results first, not the ones for e.g. hungary (i'm in croatia).

        Feedback noted. We’re currently re-examining our local market plans with a particular eye toward supporting key markets that align with Windows and Office product releases.

        Please do continue to submit other ideas to make Bing a great product!

      • Appoint a Bing manager in each major country or region

        By having a local manger of all things Bing, they can understand the local interests and issues affecting the local community and culture. Take Australia for example. If Bing (and therefore Cortana) fully embraced the AFL (Australian Football League), NRL (National Rugby League), ARU and SuperLeague (Rugby Union) and Cricket, you would cater to 99.99% of the sporting interests of the entire nation.

          That’s a great suggestion. Thanks for the idea. We are in the process of initiating such an effort and are continually striving to make it better. We will pass on this specific request to the feature team. Please do continue to submit ideas to make Bing a great product!

        • Community volunteer bulletin board

          I would like the home page to have a community volunteer bulletin. There would be so many people volunteering at animal shelters, nursing homes, preparing taxes, etc... if they only knew they could! If we could have a place to look for and post positions I believe it would be beneficial to not only those in need of assistance but those who wish to help.

            Thanks for the great idea! There exist local communities across different segments. Instead of replacing them, we plan to partner and serve them better. We would like to try these initiatives on small segment tasks like Tax, Golf and Ski resorts etc. Stay tuned!

            Keep the great ideas coming!

          • Give details about skiresorts in search

            A search for (nearby) ski resorts should produce results with info on weather, open slopes and lifts, amount of snow and maps.

                • 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.

                    • Search for cross-country skiing nearby

                      Searching should give information on nearby destinations for cross-country skiing. It should give maps, weather, snowdepth, temperature in air and snow, tips on wax and glider and information about the condition of the snow.

                      • 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.

                            • Bing "Menu's" section to access and save local restaurant menu's

                              Add "menu's" section so I can search for and save local menu's to access any time, updated by the company in real time, plus the ability to order food directly from Bing. All of these would be great, but a common place to save Menu's in one format is very helpful (especially at work).

                                • Search Advertisements

                                  When I need a handyman, a mechanic or some specialists, I'm having hard time weeding out the many search results. It will be nice to just search for anyone who is currently advertising their services and narrow it down by location. Kind of looking through a classified section of your newspaper or flyers from mail... but better

                                    I don't understand what does "local" represent? I always get "no results" page. If there is no local data for my country then don't display this tab. My country is Slovenia so you can try.

Are these companies paying you or someone who works for you to keep them at the number one postion when there business has nothing to do with the keywords you put in? Esample!
