Bing snags up 10% of search market share, Google holding strong

  1. Microsoft's re-imagined search engine is doing rather well for itself, following recent indications that it has managed to take nearly ten percent of the market in the U.S. That puts it well above competitors like AOL, and much closer to the number two player, Yahoo, who has been struggling and slowly slipping since the start of the year. The latter is not necessarily bad news for Yahoo, as they already have tied themselves to Microsoft and Bing.

    I'm using Bing more and more frequently - provides you a lot more options than Google.

    However, their shopping search engine needs some work. When I compare side-by-side shopping searches for electronic/computer goods, Google blows Bing out of the water.
  3. Bing will fail like Yahoo search if won't be localized soon.

    I'm also using Bing more frequently, but for some situations I find it easier to search Google for the same information. Such as with a specific phrase, which I can wrap in quotes and have a better chance of success finding that exact phrase in a web page. Bing just seems to get me answers a lot quicker than Google does, and I like the look of the site.
  5. Bing has nothing over Google...! What a crappy name for a search engine, "BING"!... lol.

    Bot ''Guests'' post anti bing comments, where as users praise bing. I like Bing, its more colourfull than googles boring front page screen.
  7. I like the 'boring page screen', I don't want the graphic enhanced page that Bing has. Google offers a simple clean and easy to navigate search engine, which is what I'll be sticking with.

    Good job for Bing, but I'd like to see something actually challenge google. They have the general populous wrapped around their finger, they even got google to be a word.

    Personally, I don't use any of the 3. I use www.alltheweb.com It does just fine for me.

    It's exactly how everybody knew that it was going to turn out. "Bing eats Yahoo, Google eats Bing". It's that simple. But searching for xxx is more fun on Bing. ^_^
  11. most people are like sheep, so they use google. Microsoft is the lesser evil. Google is very evil, if they have it their way everything will we web based. Taking everything away from you and putting it into their cloud space. Just say no to google.
