After 10 years Google still has NO other meaningful revenue stream so any decline in traffic no matter how small directly impacts overall profits. MS on the other hand can pour money into Bing without worry as they have countless streams of cash pouring in.
Agree on all counts. Except I see this as Google's battle to lose, not Bing's to win. It's little different than MS's battle against linux. Rail all you want about the 'better' OS, MS is still dominant.
Currently, Google will continue to be overwhelmingly dominant in search, just as MS will continue to be overwhelmingly dominant in desktop OS. Something external has to change to make things shift. Maybe that thing that has to change is just groundswell webmaster support for bing away from google.
