    Bing.com is set to become the new search engine from Microsoft. Microsoft say they want to start over again and the new Bing.com site is it.  Do you think we need another search engine? I think Microsoft want to take Google's place in the world. what do you think.

      Somebody in the brand building team sure can do with a few pointers. We have had MSN, Live, Kumo and now Bing. It sure doesn't make much sense to others  where cosmetic name change can yield any "benefits" unless the core "service" is substantially improved and relevant. smile

        You're talking about a company that put out three billion different versions of its flagship software, Windows Vista. Brand building has never been MS' strong suit, and neither has programming. They sure can leverage themselves in the market though.

    It will never happen for Microsoft. They have a big problem when it comes to making products. Instead of spending a lot of time designing something, they just crank it out. They could spend money in researching what people want, but instead they just force people to use their stuff.

    I'm confused, what about MSN search? What about Live search? How many more failures do they need?

    MS will just cop another hiding from Google. This is one game where if you keep getting the relevant results right for searches the public actually make, and keep doing it, you own the net.
    Google has the capacity to stay in front, and MS will need a massive amount of effort and money to remain in the search engine market against them. My bet is that Google are not short on ideas, management, market ready experts or profit to defend their position very well!

    Meh, there's several different search engines slowly encroaching upon Google.

    Yahoo! now uses Google, being that its never been a search engine but more of a "search directory."

    I like http://www.ixquick.com

    It checks a lot of search engines at once, and doesn't record your IP address. So you can browse for the Anarchist's Cookbook without being added to the no fly list! wink

    I think even the might of Google is struggling when it come to showing relevant search results. Its just full of garbage, Spam, what ever you want to call it. Ok, Google along with Dmoz are currently the most accurate when it comes to search results however they are not as they should be. SEO Tech's are right up behind them and they are nearing the end of the road. New, more powerful search engine software is what is required Today. I think another Search engine wars is nearing ever closer.

      I couldn't disagree more... Google does a fantastic job of kicking off the spam. I don't know anyone who uses anythign but Google.

      Google is the defacto arbiter of what is and isn't important.
      If Google thinks it's important enough to rank on the first ten search results potential customers think it must be important as well.

        I agree Google are doing a fantastic job with what they do, However it is still to easy to manipulate Google and if you wish spam Google using .htaccess redirects and java. also hijacking of pages is not the most difficult thing to do however is to immoral for me. Who knows Maybe Google have something up their sleeves, you just never know with Google as they Don't give any information away until its ready.

    Well, obviously Google is going to need to continue to evolve to stay current. But it'll be a cold day in hell if MS ever did something well besides the X-Box.

      Thanks for your input, I know at the moment no other search engine comes close to matching Google's results and ranking system, however Microsoft say they want to start at the beginning, This will give them big advantages and will allow them to build their new search around the current world of the internet. If Microsoft say they are going to do something they normally do a good job, look at the xbox, xbox 360 which took over Sony in the console wars. I think Microsoft Search will have a very good chance by starting over again.

    There's a few other search alternatives out there. I can't think of the actual names, but one actually involves talking to a beautiful woman and having her parse your inquiries. There was mention of something else on the news, which is actually the progeny of Google. I'll have to look up the name...it's probably going to be the one that kills Google, if one ever does.

    Google can do a lot more than what people know about. Just by making its full potential more obvious to the public, bing can have a cutting egde.

    You'd first have to assume Bing has a decent amount of stuff stored, crawled, what not have you.

    Then you'd have to hope they've backwards engineered Google's algorithms, and method of creating relevant results.

    And now, you'll have to hope Microsoft can make something easy to use, which is seldom the case. wink

        who uses IE when you could use Firefox... only reason I use IE is if I have too many Firefox windows open.

          Use Ubuntu Linux and you'll never have the chance to use IE or to crash your system:) Firefox is the best with it's fun add-ons.
