Unfortunately, as much as I want this to happen, it’s going to take a while. Thanks to us, Google is entrenched in people’s minds. It was a grassroots effort of people talking about Google that got them to where they are and because of it many people associate Google with the Internet.
Google is a complete joke and I hope Bing sees this and realizes this is a perfect way to capture market-share. Bing doesn't need a billion-dollar advertising campaign, because once guys and gals like us start seeing that Bing is better than Google, due to the nature of the internet, it will spread like wildfire, all the way down to average mom-and-pop-internet-user.
As an example, when I tell my Dad to put a web address into the address bar, his response is “it didn’t come up on the Google so I couldn’t find it”. I then have to spend the next 5 minutes explaining to him that Google is not the Internet.
If anything, all the flack Google is getting over privacy issues and such is what is going to bring them down along with Government intervention for their heavy handed tactics in promoting their own stuff.
