Do you use Bing or Yahoo?

    2009 saw the launch of Bing, even amidst a ton of hype the take-up hasn’t been as good as Microsoft would have wished for. However, it will be interesting to see what will happen later in 2010 when Yahoo starts showing Bing results and search moves from 1 big player and 2 small players to 1 big player and 1 sizable player. 

    Do you use Bing or Yahoo? Are either your search engine of choice or are they used as fallback when Google fails to come up with suitable answers?

    Fallback only, except for a day here and there when the entire concept of Google seems icky.  Then both Bing! and Yahoo!  seem a bit livelier and get my searches for a while...lol

    Google took out their local listings to search and have recently observed difficulties trying to find info. Hope that won't last tongue not sure about bing but do enjoy Yahoo! big_smile

    Didn't know that about Google local.  But then, I hardly ever do local searches anyway, so.....

    Google is my sole provider. Bing takes too much time to get indexed for any keywords. tongue

    http://blindsearch.fejus.com/ an interesting site that removes all branding from search results and displays all three search engines serps on the page at one time. You can then vote for the results you find most relevant, you might be surprised.

    I use Yahoo (second to Google). I've tried Bing a few times but it's not something I use daily.

    I rarely use Yahoo.  I have never used Bing.  I did use before a toolbar which displayed search results from Google, Yahoo and Microsoft but the results were limited.

    Bing is awful. Yahoo is OK. Google is 100x better than the aforementioned.

    Stick to Google.
