    Talking Invasion of 'Bing'

    Greetings,

    I'm not a fan of 'Bing' to say the least. When I want to search for something Google is my main source. I've been seeing lately on Twitter and other popular websites items involving 'Bing' such as http://bingtweets.com/ Do you think 'Bing' is going to catch on or are they just hitting the advertising market hard now for appear reasons?

    i don't like bing at all myself. I prefer google. It "may" catch on with some, but i doubt it will be a google killer.

    EDIT: I will say though, that the maps bing generates, are far more detailed than google.. and i feel by saying that, i have committed a sin.

    Actually, I'm a big fan of both Bing and Google. Each has their strengths. I like the new Microsoft ads about search overload. Will it catch on? I think it has already captured more marketshare than many predicted.

    I prefer bing to Google now-a-days. Their homepage is lightweight like Google, but still more attractive by actually using color. It's my homepage now.

    If all we had were MSN, Yahoo, and those other pages packed full of junk, my homepage would be about:blank.

    I know exactly what you mean. I guess perhaps I should be more open minded and try using 'Bing'. I noticed they have alot of different features that Google seems to be lacking.

    What I'm very excited in seeing is Google response to 'Bing'. What I mean by response is what is Google going to do to ensure they don't get overlooked. Will be an interesting fight...

    The catch-on of "bing"-ish key words is rather funny =p

    Let's see how long it lasts.

    google is a necessary evil for seeing how your site stands in the serps. bing is good for getting less spammy results for searches done about your competitors or other subjects.

    In short, bing is better for actually finding useful pages.
