    Hope in future too Bing will do the same. In fact now there are every possibilities that Google may lose its dominance on search engine arena. There are many players who are doing great job these days. Start-up search engines like DuckDuckGo and Blecko are doing pretty well when it comes to user satisfaction and protecting user privacy. Google is being condemned by people for it’s sneaking nature.

    Thats great that Bing is just one point behind from Google which shows that in future there are chances for Bing to dominate the market like Google(presently dominating search all engines) is now.

    Bing is making news from past two years and steadily improving their search market share, satisfaction score. That’s really a positive sign for them. But still, when it comes to search market dominance, Google is far ahead and Bing has a lot to do more to be around there.

    Bing and other second-tier search engines will need to do better than “almost as good as the leader” if they want to unseat Google. They need to find product differentiators that will give searchers a reason to use them. Example: (I always thought Yahoo’s slider that let users shift the SERP’s emphasis from commercial to informational or vice versa was a great idea. If Yahoo had done a better job of making its users aware of that feature, maybe Yahoo wouldn’t be in such desperate straits today.)

    Bing seems to be developing a little bit of a cult “cool” factor these days – I know the spiderman thing was blatant product placement but I’ve heard in the media and just around people are using the term ‘bing’ as a verb in place of Goog. Especially some hip techno personalities and other younger people who like to go against the grain. 
    Is Google in danger of becoming “my parents search engine”? haha maybe not anytime soon but young people will always want to be different and if there is one thing that is true of popularity, it’s that people love to see you fall from grace!

    At the moment I find things on Bing they I seem to have lost on Google. There are searches I have done for 8 years or more on Google that in the last year do not turn up the results I used to count on. Mostly Photoshop walkthroughs. I now have to go to Bing to find those walkthroughs as Google doesn’t bring them up anymore. After 8 years of doing the same searches to all of a sudden not see the results I was expecting is kind of a surprise. I guess I should have bookmarked the walkthroughs 8 years ago.

    Rob I love that meme of Matt Cutts on your site! Had me laughing!

    Bing is doing amazing still there is a long way to go before it could possibly be equally compared with Google but then Google is also fast developing. Who knows!

    But Ask.com? is it still being treated as a search engine ?

  • dsleno

    I’m not surprised.  Especially in long tail niche searches, blending social results often leads to the promotion of timely but low quality content, which bumps more relevant results off the front page. If I want videos, or tweets, or blogs,  let me refine my search. Tossing them all together is just annoying.

  • dsleno

    Yes I think they are in danger of becoming the Oldsmobile of the search engine world. With FB and Twitter and other closed social systems, there’s lots of things that Google can’t index.  Since Penguin, I find that Google provides more diversity and timeliness in results, but too often those signals get ahead of quality.

    hehe yeah I thought it was pretty hilarious

    Ask is Google and Yahoo is Bing, so why are they broken out separately?  Battle of the logos?
