I am sure I am not the only one that wants to see some more competition online - but do I sense a lack of urgency still from Bing in rolling out what **should** be fairly straight-forward features/essential competitive features that will be essential to win users and webmasters over to the cause?
I am thinking in very a high level sense :
i. Contextual Ads for the small business (e.g. exact copy of Adsense only done way way better with phone support and site by site authorisation
ii. Site search for websites to use Bing technology - from which they can gather great feedback and data
iii. Date filtering - for crying out loud implement this against all searches, rather than trying to guess where I could need to think about a date
iv. Just keep it simple - you will out do G by keeping search search with a few ads - no clutter and paying for a few deals with Kindle, Firefox etc etc.
Any more features we can start lobbying for - as these will be simple things to get people using Bing right now!
