Did a product announcement rank me high?

    A certain company (I can't name) announced that they would be launching their product in the upcoming months and Bing for some reason ranked me #4 for the KW term. I do not do any link building to the domain yet but I am curious:

    Would the announcement of this product (It's a well known company) triggered Bing to rank me #4 for the KW term?

    I get ~30 unique visitors but Bing brought it up to over 250 unique visitors after the announcement was made.

    Something interesting I experienced. The domain has a post or two and I don't build backlinks to it. The announcement by this company was made a few days ago and I am officially #4 for the KW in Bing after the announcement was made.

    Anyone else experience something similar? Very cool none the less.

    Is your domain/product in the company's niche?

    Then perhaps it is indeed related as that seems logical if you are both in same niche that the press release for a new product in this niche caused serp movements and more traffic

    My domain is a EMD for the product.

    For example, if the product was "Blackberry Torch", my domain currently would be blackberrytorch.com.

    Wow great find!

    How'd you know to pick this domain?

    You could monetize well with amazon probably or get a cease letter from the company demanding transfer..

    I'm surprised the company didnt change product name

    I picked it as soon as it was announced few months ago but it was officially announced that it would be released.

    That is my plan to monetize it with Amazon.
