I won't say I'm 100% out of Google. I've had them for years as my home page. However, in the past week I've made a decision. I have my Firefox quick link to Bing. If it's not research related, I'm using Bing. I'm using Google for analysis purposes only. So let's just say it's about 50/50 usage right now.
I'm going to say why. I can't with good conscious continue supporting something that has spanked me and my fellow webmasters. Harsh? Perhaps. I perhaps have spent more time reading Panda impact statements. I just don't like the result post Panda and I'm sick of seeing the same pattern of sites on the Google searches. It's getting really predictable!
I know I shouldn't and I have already. The ultimate Bing experience in the Google skin is....binngle. Check it out and if you aren't amused there is something wrong with you!
To stay on the SEO theme, I would suggest if you worked at SEO in Google, you need not change your game when going after Bing. I personally see (or should I say saw) results in Google that are mostly duplicated in Bing. If Google likes it, I would suggest Bing will like it. That may be pre Panda thinking, but I assuming that you aren't ripping your site to shreds in hopes of figuring out Panda and in the meanwhile completely undoing your Bing rankings. Most should hope for increased importance of Bing SEO.
