Microsoft's new Bing search service is the fastest-growing U.S. search engine among the top 10, according to a Nielsen report released Monday.
The total amount of searches on Bing rang in at 1.1 billion for the month of August, a leap of 22.1 percent over July, winning Microsoft a 10.7 percent share of the search engine market.
Its search results are even better than google i assure you, give it a try.
But the problem is this
Default home page --> "www.google.com/" ! i can't avoid this habit :)
Google have the technology to respond and are probably putting together a huge marketing plan as we speak. It will be interesting to see which search engine has the most market share by the end of next year :)
I love the way you can watch a video while continuing to browse the search results. Cool. Definitely #1. Not even Youtube does that.
Smart to show Youtube videos. Pull the visitors to Bing, show search results to them, even play the video, but leave the bandwidth bill with Google. Great!
I haven't used Bing enough to comment on the results, but they can't be much more of a headache than I've been getting from G lately...
I'm really hoping Bing can provide competition to Google - therefore, we will be getting better SEs. Competition has always proved that in a free market.
Who wudda thunk?
(seriously though .. I don't imagine that I've ever seen so much spam. Bing will list anything with your "one word" search query in it .. even if it's just one word written over and over again all the way down the page)
From a subjective point of view the results on Bing are very similar to Google, Yahoo is absolutely dire in our niche. The sooner Bing provides results to Yahoo the better.
