    I can see that the numbers are higher so they are gaining share, but from what I have noticed they are not gaining all of this share by more users going to their site and entering a query. They are gaining these searches by putting a link that looks like it goes to a story that may be circulating in the media or just look interesting and then sending the user to a bing search. It has gotten me a few times in the past few weeks.

    I’m not necessarily saying there is anything wrong with this strategy, it is very creative and obviously effective so congrats but there is just an undertone of icky behind tricking people into searching with your engine. It just seems like an easy way to tweek the numbers but who knows, maybe from this “accidental search” some people are turning into bing users…
