Among the stable of publishers who run Chitika, a staggering 47% are receiving less traffic from Bing and Yahoo than they should be. With a network-wide average of 23.58% of all search traffic coming from a Bing-powered search engine, that's a lot of missed opportunity, opportunity now coming from a single source.

The company says, "on average, publishers who don't optimize for Bing are missing out on a 9.4% bump in traffic."
