Is Anyone Here Using Bing Box?

Msg#: 4241829 posted 4:40 pm on Dec 13, 2010 (gmt 0)


What has been your experience?

Better or worse than Google?

Any problems or issues?

My experience so far.

Easy to set up
Results are excellent
Results look good
Search box books better the Gs
I like the pop-up results window
It loads in all my test browsers quickly except for Opera, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't, strange.

I'm glad you started this thread. I'm looking for a replacement for "AdSense for Search". Quite frankly Google has enough of my visitor's behavior.

I know using this gives MS the data too, but at least it reduces the amount of info Google gathers in a day.

I'm going to check this out.... I tried Clusty one time, it looked promising. It's called something else now.

I will stay tuned to this thread...

I can't get it to work in Opera either. That won't do at all.

Do you have to show the Bing logo in the SERPs? Google's custom search lets you show completely unbranded SERPs if you pay $100. ...and it works in Opera.

Yep, it shows top right and also says at the bottom of the page "Try this query on the Bing site".

It's results are very fast and clean and by default does a site search but offers "web" as an alternative.

I have no idea how many people are using it, my Google search seemed to have very few searches judging by my AdSense earnings!

I like it, I really do however it still will not work in Opera...why?
