I am now noticing on a few searches even more search options for things like Brand, Price, Categories, etc. at the top of the SERP's (not the RELATED SEARCHES box to to the left) though it does send you to Bing's Cashback shopping when these links are clicked. I'm starting to understand the decision engine vs. search engine approach unfold now. These particular new features need to be aimed at not only the Bing Cashback shopping site but also the SERP's as it will help you narrow your search by such attributes hence giving you options that you may or may not have known existed. I'm anxious to see what other simple little obvious ideas Bing will implement that no other search engine is bringing to the table at the moment but Bing!

As I've said before, I like Bing. The small rollouts of nifty little features is a good idea... let folks discover them and tell their friends. Word of mouth is more lasting than all the media blitz one can finance short term. Microsoft is playing Firefox to Google as Firefox plays to IE. Erosion of the mighty takes a little time and is done by doing what the mighty does just a bit different, if not better.
Not a big fan of Microsoft - but Bing is the real thing! As soon as it was launched, I knew it had a chance. Why? Because of the changing image every day. Bill Gates bought Getty Images some years back (if I am not mistaken) and this will now prove to be the thing that brings back searchers. Hey - people like my mom will love this feature!
