Yahoo-based parking companies are making the switch to Bing this month. You will likely see some delays on TrafficZ, Parked, and SmartName as these changes take place. Bing also uses Greenwich Mean Time (GMT or UTC) for their reporting, so most of these services wil also be standardizing on this – making the month of October a few hours shorter than it would otherwise be.
What other changes will we notice? I expect that we will see yet another ratcheting down of domain income from parking. The major players, let by Google, seem to look for any excuse to improve their bottom line at the expense of affiliates or others downstream. There may also be some shifts in certain verticals as different ads come online.
