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

I have been impressed with what Microsoft have come up with for their new search engine, judging by what I have seen from online video demos. They also have a large number of commercials already online, which look like something out of Hollywood. With their "war chest" of cash, Microsoft will be able to promote Bing on a scale we have not seen before.

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 :)

Second Bing's leadership in video search.

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!

Just added Bing to my FireFox search engines on my second computer... I'm about tired of G and glad to see something besides Yahoo!, just because their site always turns me off. Yahoo! feels just plain cheesy when I search. The thing I like most is it's actually cool to use. I feel like I'm really visiting a website, not just the 'white pages'.

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 agree with the part of that Bing might be possibly be eating into Yahoo's share and not really Google's.

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.

10% market share and all of those spam ridden SERPS .. Wow.

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)

for every one word term i've tried, bing comes out ahead with at least attempts to show wiki, dictionary and other links. Google amazingly leads to #*$! in many cases :)

In UK Bing does not seem to be making such a noise and growth (from my own logs/analytics) is slow now just under 6%. Yahoo seems to be where this growth is coming down to about 3% for me. Google seems to be holding market share.

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.

Cheers
