  • This February, Seattle Search Network is pleased to host Microsoft Data Scientist Lin Huang, presenting on 


    Lin will break down innovative ways the Bing team has overcome typical difficulties tracking conversions back "up the funnel". 

    An SEM platform always tries to advise its advertisers on searchers’ decision journey and search path. This is a daunting task given that searches nowadays can happen across computers and mobile devices. Tracking in itself is one difficult thing, but making sense of all the tracked steps that searchers take before the eventual conversion is another difficulty with a much higher order of magnitude. 

    Microsoft has developed a nonparametric feature matching model to demonstrate why the industry-standard first/last-click or fixed weight attribution heuristics are inadequate. It considers all possible steps leading to a conversion, with or without a click, from the big data of our vast pool of searchers, and has been successfully applied in field experiments to persuade advertisers into adopting nontraditional search keywords that score better ROI.
