    Bing is the new MSN Search Engine and is already being well received. Some are calling it the "Decision Maker".

    Obviously it has a long way to go to surpass Google, however  it's only been out a couple of weeks and is has surpassed Yahoo search engine in terms of market share.

    Make sure to add your blog or site to this new engine...I'm already getting hits off it!

      Why on earth would you need to add a blog or site?

        LOL, I agree....if I have to add my site to it, it can't be that good! But seriously I haven't seen any massive's about the same as MSN traffic for me. Hopefully it will increase but the more I think about it, I'm not so sure it'd matter. I don't care what search engine people use to find my pages, as long as they get there! smile They're either going to use one or the other, really.

    I noticed some traffic coming from Bing. When I tried it out I really wasn't excited with the results though.

        Take a look at your Google Analytics before you start believing all the PR out there.  On all my sites over the last couple of days bing is running under 1/3 the traffic that Yahoo is, well under 5%.

          Yahoo is down to 10% market share. I personally get more traffic from bing than Yahoo on my sites. I also believe Yahoo is geared towards the older crowd.

            That older crowd is what you want if you're looking for ad revenue.

    I have been using it a bit lately, it does not compete with Google yet, but it is pretty good.

    comparisons have shown Bing to give better results as the bounce rate is lower (means people stay longer on the website)
    do a search for that and I am sure you will find it.

    It is about time to. Google is becoming too too big showing their youtube crap and commercial / retail products on some searches. You be the judge.

    It always take me a while to warm up to one of these new things.  I like Google.  It's somehow simpler.

    Oddly, I seem to be getting more Bing traffic than I got when it was MSN or Live or whatever it was called. Weird, but good. More traffic is good.

      This is because people are finding it better than other search engines. I for one think its the best for getting the results you want in the fastest time.

        I agree with both statements. I am getting more traffic since it has changed to Bing and also I have tried the search engine and it gave me much more relevant results than Google.

    Do you blog on Bing? I signed up but had no clue where on the site you could post articles by to hubpages. I have use twitter and diggs, but they were easy to navigate. Any suggestions appreciated.....

    I don't get the relative value of search engines.  I type in words and they all seem to do the same thing.  I don't see that the change to Bing made any difference at all to me.

      bing saves you from clicking a website but at the same time shows you more information on the website, including page links which makes possible the navigation of a search result without clicking the result. Since the bing launch I have not looked back. Bing is the search for me.
