Microsoft's Plan For Bing: It's Not Going To "out-Google" Google [money.cnn.com]
Can Bing escape its stagnation and actually make money? Microsoft says it has a solution.

At the company's financial analyst meeting in Anaheim, Calif., last week, Microsoft President of Online Services Qi Lu gave an impassioned speech about how Bing would improve search by "reorganizing the Web." To do that, Microsoft plans to leverage its network of products and partnerships to gain a better understanding of what the user is after when they enter a query into a Bing search box. Ultimately, Microsoft believes its technical secret sauce will let Bing both expand what is "searchable" and deliver more robust search results than any of its competitors.

Lu said Microsoft could not and would not try to "out-Google" Google. Instead, it must "change the game fundamentally."

I'm shocked they even have a plan!

I thought they were just slinging mud at the wall and looking to see what stuck

Worst thing going for them is the MSFT stigma imo.

A product or three that bans/blocks Google beacons and data gathering activities would be a breath of fresh air, it's gotten too intense of late, at least for my liking.

They need to exploit Google's weaknesses not take them on directly. If MS can cut the stupid number of ads and other cr~p on their SERPS, spend their advertising money on convincing Jo Public that Bing really does provide true results that are not paid for for then they will make some headway.

The public are not even aware that they are being shafted by Google. If MS can convince them that is the case and MS are different then it's possible they can win the game.

Yes, it's an uphill fight for MS because of their reputation over the last couple of decades.

But money spent on advertising that concentrates on Bing as the good boy versus Google as the bad boy may well pay dividends.

Being realistic, Jo Public doesn't even realise that Bing is owned by MS. In their eyes its Bing versus Google.

well, one hopes that does not mean filing their serps with their own product like the other blokes do,
