    Bing is still a sliver of the overall search pie. With Google holding firm to 2/3 of the market , it will take many years of bing baby steps for the tortoise to catch the hare.

    Rick, I couldn’t agree more with you. I have others (that do not know much about SEO) ask me all the time why I don’t pay attention to all the other miniscule search engines other than Google. Anything I doing Google seems to make me prevalent in the other search engines. So I suppose, why would I ever look at any others at this present time?

    The bing and facebook partnership is the only way to topple google.

    I have been trying out using Bing the entire month of September, having used Google for the last 6 years straight. So far, so good. Their engine has really become a solid product. It just needs more differentiation from Google.

    I searched for a company’s address on Google, and while I did find it, I was turned off by the five listings below it. All five of the listings below it were from the Better Business Bureau. It’s sad that Google gives an organization such great ranks when they (BBB) were caught in a scam that took money from businesses in exchange for altering their ratings. Diversity is also sorely lacking in Google’s SERPS.

    Get a grip! Google is among, if not THE MOST innovative tech company in world. And they have the best engineers.

    Your BLOG’s decline in rankings/traffic is not hurting the economy, trust me! ;)

    So you found what you were looking for? And it sounds like you had no trouble doing so.

    Do you think people (non SE professionals) really care about which listings are displayed below the one they were looking for?

    However, I agree that more diversity would be nice (is essential).

    I tend to agree. Domain stuffing and adding a huge percentage to their own advertising footprint on every page (adsense and self promotional stuff.increased size and prominance of Google logo for instance) means Google are no longer my search engine of choice. I still took to them for traffic, but also look to minimize my reliance on them. They are too self promotional and too flakey. Yes they are innovating – innovating their own bottom line at the expense of customer service. A short term tactic to be sure.
