Solid Growth in Google Organic traffic and big decline in Bing/Yahoo

For some time now I have noticed that I have some really solid google organic traffic growth, sometimes up 75% and more and then I go and look at my Bing and Yahoo traffic and it is down 75%.  It does not make sense to me that we have such great Google organic growth but stagnant on those other channels.  I even have pretty solid rankings on all organic channels.  I have read things that yahoo users are leaving yahoo, but others say that Bing is gaining in searchers.  Sometimes I do see some increases on Bing on a few sites, but yahoo tends to constantly be dragging.  I have read that they changed to https but many of my sites are https so there should be no data loss.  Any thoughts on this? Anyone else having this issue?

If you look at longer time period and there are no big suspicious dips and/or spikes at the same time and you have history of good rankings in all 3 I guess you should take it as is.


Are the other 2 significant regarding traffic when compared to Google? What is the absolute shift in sessions from Bing / Yahoo?
