    Why Do You Think Google Is The Leading Search Engine?

    Because it is a bully.  Then again it isn't too bad to be a bully sometimes especially in business and internet.  One has to push forward to get ahead of the competition.  Personally though, I hate them.  They are way too snoopy in our lives and for writing sites, they change up way too often making it very difficult for sites like this one to stay ahead or even on an even playing field.

      You make an excellent point. I just did a Google search for a local Chicago Pizza restaurant and when I came back to my HP page there is an "ad choice" banner of the very restaurant I just searched! Coincidence? I think not! smile

    Google is the leading search engine because they know how to make money by giving people results that they want. They simplified the way we search for things on the internet and gave us more relevant results.

    That said, people are now in the habit of going to Google to search the internet. But watch out because Bing is now taking some of their market share by offering points for every search you do then you can trade in those points for gift cards, discounts or entries into sweepstakes to win prizes. It's an ingenious way to buy Google's users and personally I like Bing results better than Google.

      Bing was here long before Google and did a great job before and during and will continue to do more.  I used that before I used google.  Google is what this site is using and so I switched to this instead of IE.

      Bing stands no chance, really. Google is everpresent, while Bing is niche. "Google" is a word you hear people say daily and understand immediately what they're doing, while "Bing" just sounds like someone's making a goofy sound effect.

      There is a rule to everything in life:  What goes up must come down and the bigger they are the harder they fall.

    For me Google is the "go to search engine". I find it to be faster and more often it pulls up the information I'm looking for on the first page.
    Many years ago I used Yahoo and something called AltaVista but once I discovered Google it became my prime choice. In fact I doubt there is a day that goes by when I don't use it whether it be to look up historical information, news events, phone numbers, or view directions and street views of locations.
    I've attempted to use Bing a few times but overall for (me) it oftentimes didn't pull up the information I was looking for on the first page. However I must admit it has gotten better and in many ways it's interface is starting to resemble Google.

    I think some of its popularity also comes from its simplicity. Most other search engines (yahoo, msn) are also trying to be news websites. The search bar is almost hidden by all the other stuff they want you to see. Google might be one of the last dedicated engines and even they have tiny links in the corners for gmail and such.

    I think because google is awesome. Their keyword intelligence is awesome. I mean, whenever you search for specific thing, it gives you the accurate results highlighted automatically. This is awesome. It's like you are personally talking to some one specialized in that field.

    Just search for any actor's upcoming movie. And it will tell you all of the details including date to be released and other information. Just search as follow: "[actor's name] upcoming movies" .... e.g., johnny depp upcoming movies
    and it will give you the movie names and other information at the top of all of the search results.
