The report shows that Microsoft has boosted its share of search result pages in the US market to 12.1% from June 8 to 12. This comes as an improvement over its June 1 to 5 period showing 11.3%. In the work week prior to Bingís introduction, the software giantís share was a mere 9.1%. The companyís most recent searcher penetration was 16.7%, up from 15.8% June 1-5 and 13.7% before Bingís launch.
While the early data reflects a positive market reaction, I wonder whether users will continue to use Bing or revert back to Google and Yahoo. I played around with it for a half an hour following its opening, and Iíve not used it since. My experience wasnít negative, but I found little reason to stick with it. Love it or hate it, letís hear your thoughts on Bing so far.
