Nielsen Says Microsoft's Bing Takes Number 2 Slot In August US Search [kara.allthingsd.com]
In what will surely cause a firestorm of controversy in the search arena today, the Nielsen Co. is reporting that–for the first time–Bing has pushed past Yahoo in August to become the No. 2 search engine in the United States.

In its report for August, Nielsen–one of many entities that releases search market share results–said the Microsoft (MSFT) search service had a 13.9 percent share of search volume in August, compared to Yahoo’s 13.1 percent.

We all need competition. Being depended on one SE only has high risk. One day my traffic felt by 80% just because Google dancing. It lasts for several weeks. I'm glad that Bing expends their influence in SE.

About Google instant search, I'm sure it will disappear at some point. I found it very disturbing, total disaster on mobile devices. The only benefit of instant search is for Google. Now they can declare that number of daily searches tripled, as well as adwords advertisers will pay more for impressions that really nothing to do with search term end user intended to perform.

With adwords you do not pay for impressions, you pay for clicks. It will skew CTR though.

...aren't you the same folks that wanted (and thought it would be a good thing for) Google to take over the world six or seven years back ?

My traffic logs say Google is at about 94%, Y! at about 4% and Bing and Ask at about 1% each.

go BING. I like BING because unlike Google, BING is like a mature adult that treats every website and webmaster with respect. Google is like a common bully/dictator. If it doesn't like you, it penalizes you and keeps you away from it's group of friends.
