Bing Vs Yahoo

There should be an image here!There has been a bit of speculation that Microsoft Bing is actually beating out Yahoo. Frankly, I think it is a bit soon. First of all, it’s brand new to the market. So clearly, it is a little quick on the draw to start coming out with conclusions one way of the other.

Based on this, the most accurate run down I have seen thus far is coming from Search Engine Land in their analysis of what has taken place thus far. And based on that, just from a visitor standpoint, Bing is still very much a brand new thing. There is hardly any recordable traffic when compared to Yahoo.

So what happens when Bing starts tossing around some of those commercials they have produced? Will anyone care? Unless they re-shoot them with clear, specific reasons what Joe and Jane Average need to change search engines, Microsoft is going to be in for a big surprise. Not based on their product, rather the inability of their marketing dept yet again.

    Why is there so much emotion (positive and negative) when a news story focuses on Microsoft? Let’s stick with the facts and how they might or might not impact us. In what ways is Bing better or worse than Google or Yahoo? How will (or should) Bing’s introduction affect marketers? Here are my newest thoughts on Bing, Yahoo!, and Google.

    Personally, using Bing for a few hours and for what I mostly use it for in my searches on the internet, it’s just another search engine, with little to no difference at all.

    Microsoft, give me a convincing reason why I should switch to your search service and drop Google when it has worked relatively well in all my time on the internet. Then we can talk.

    No, I am not willing to pay for things I feel should be or were free in the past.  Selling software on the internet has led to some companies releasing software prematurely, without proper testing, to make a quick buck.  Remember Norton’s (now Symantec)  Utilities first release for Windows didn’t even run on most machines and then they charged for Version 2?  Then Novel’s network release with a virus!  On the support side, telephone support used to be super for WordPerfect, now with many software companies you just wait on the line for some idiot reading a pre-scripted document.
