Oh it was painful, but I did it. I switched to Bing as my primary search engine.

No doubt you wonder why. It's simple, really. It gives me more relevant results in less time. Woohoo!

Sorry G, you were good to me, and you still are, but I had to face reality, and there simply isn't room for the two of you.

I was walking downtown the other day, and a group of 4 teenage girls was walking in front of me. I wasn't paying any attention to what they were saying until one of them said, "Bing it! There are tons of sites listed."

It would appear Bing is becoming part of the youth culture. If it takes hold, I can see where Google might need to be concerned.

I still use both, and sometimes Bing truly does offer better results. I usually make that comparison when I'm looking for something personal that's unrelated to my sites, as I feel I can be more open minded about it.

Actually there is - on my first (main) computer Bing, on the other one Google :).

Now I'm back to 50/50. Arghhh!

I can be capricious at times :)

I do notice on some of my websites that are for the general public Bing gives slightly more traffic than more geeky type websites. I am in two minds about that "Bing it" it sounds some what cool however I am stuck with "Google it" .. interesting to see what happens!

"Bing it! There are tons of sites listed."

That is exactly the kind of commercials that MS should be creating and getting onto the boob tube (and uploaded to YouTube). Forget Jerry S -- go with the kids saying "Bing it!" and watch the marketshare rise.

Today I found out how little I have been using Google. google.com was nowhere to be found in my address bar dropdown. I started using Bing about a month or so ago, and have been using Google less and less.
