In other news, Myspace has more traffic than google+ and pinterest is growing like crazy!

Glad to see Bing growing though! They're obviously doing something right.. Bing's combined search percent/count since re-launch is a pretty amazing figure.

Just wonder when MS will have their costs under control..

By those metrics Google has a greater increase in everything compared to all the others. This is not good news. And as far as I know, Microsoft is spending gazillions in promoting Bing just to tread water. What happens when the spending stops? Not good, not good at all.

Many of the G+ gripes started just recently: it'll be interesting (to me) to see how much search rolls over from G to Bing (if any). The NIMBY effect.

With Google's latest debacle.... I mean update, I see this changing dramatically in Bing's favor during 2012.

Although Google is at 65.9 pct, you have to consider that the combined share Bing is accounting for almost 30 pct of search share, according to comScore's figures.

And yet I see Google ads everywhere, even on my own sites, and very few Bing ads. Paying more for adwords campaigns because Google is your competitor even on non-internet subjects is... frustrating, given they own the adwords platform.

Fascinating. Could this be the year that Google begins to lose dominance in Search? Then again could a falling market share in Search be a positive point in any anti-trust actions?

Instead of a search for information, is Google becoming a search for popular people who have opinions?

I don't think Bing is the solution to end Google's dominance.

they don't have to be, they just have to take enough of googs bottom line until they start to bleed themselves.

They are still a one trick pony no matter how hard they try not to be.

Google stopped being a search engine company years ago. They're an advertising agency that offers a free search engine as a way of driving traffic to their ads.

Google understands that. The sooner the rest of the internet understands that, the sooner we can get back to having real, useful, search engines again.
