Think back to when we all started using google. At first we tried it while still searching on our old favorite. Eventually we dumped the old for google. I sense we are seeing a lot of comparing going on right now but eventually bing will gain. I think it's already happening. Initially yahoo/bing ate the smaller competiton but they are now eroding google share weekly on our site.
The problem with the SERPS:
1. Slow pickup of content on sites not buying deep links. Plain and simple this is it in our niche. Buy deep links or suffer. That's fine but Matt should stop telling us this is bad. It has been bad for us because we haven't done it. I saw a major retailer that added an entire line in mid November one link from the home page and it's still not cached. Amazon could load up yellow snipe and it would be cached by brunch.
2. When the data is there the relevancy is blown. The mixing of results is problematic. The old top ten are there but spread between four pages with mostly irrelevant junk in between. I'll post the offender image later. This shouldn't be happening
