    I use Google.  I don't like all the "confusing visuals" and "whatever else" there is on Bing.

    Bing has that tv ad where they say something about not being just a search engine but they say something about making decisions....

    I'm not looking to make decisions, and I don't even get what they mean.  lol   I'm just looking for a simple block to type something in and seeing what I get.  If I don't like what I get I may use Yahoo or Ask.com.

      I did write one Hub on Bing, but still mostly use Google with Yahoo as backup and Bing only when I don't seem to be finding what I want on the others.  I don't get what the Bong they're talking about by calling it a decision engine, either! lol

    Local Internet providers seem to be using Bing. I still go to google as I prefer its layout, especially for images.

    Its funny sometimes i seem to check out hubpages first for any random information to check if they have it here prior to google.
    Prefer Google over Bing any day.

    It's funny, but I've compared a lot of search results for my hubs on Google and Bing. They seem to be the total opposite of each other! If a hub of mine is no the 1st page of Google, it is nowhere to be found on Bing. If it ranks on the 1st page of Bing, it's nowhere to be found on Google.

    Stupid Bing! smile

    Bing Bing and Bingo.. A big No.. Somehow Google always means search to me and search always means Google. No idea how Bing will make it to the top of the mind recall for anyone.

    Always google.  Except when I'm very bored, because the bing homepage features some random cool thing everyday, with links to wikipedia.

    Bing is kind of a joke.  I started a blog about a month ago; here's how many hits I have from the search engine's robots:

    Google: 1566
    Yahoo: 112
    Ask: 28
    MSN (Bing): 2

    Google is just way better at spidering than anyone else.  That's why they're #1 (but still far from perfect).

    I always use Google and sometimes Yahoo.  Bing seems to be a joke to me and confusing.

    I did some simple "research" by comparing bing results with other search results and decided that bing is - at least at the moment - not very useful if you really have to digg deeper. It seems to me that at the moment bing just includes only a handful of some of the most established websites.

    [P.S.: Of course I am not neutral in this regard and somewhat annoyed since Bing seems to ignore all my highly relevant and original content smile]

    Clearly I think Google wins hands down. You can always use Bing and Yahoo as an alternative, if you're curious.

    I use Google because of the way you can dig down more on the same subject until you get to exactly what you are looking for.  Much easier to do on Google.

    There are still lots of websites not indexed on Bing, some of them really great.

    I think it needs a little more time to grow as a realiable search engine.

    So I use Google.

    I'm Using Google, it is Clean for me, but my daugther prefer using Bing, she was more to social networking & chat-chating, so to me, it convinient to whom are on social network very often, but... i tried it & in term of funtionality, i could post a blog to any of my Blogsite using window live writer, because Bing has it MSN, so directly update & share my blog post without loging in to my Blogsite.

    Google for me (for now)
    I can't see them ever being overtaken, but Bing may well close the gap.
