    Hi All Frinds!

    What's the difference? (I would prefer facts rather than opinions.)

    Thanks!

    I personally like both Google and Bing. Bing has a better presentation with a nice filtering system. Bing images is also very nice as you don't have to go page to page to see new images, you simply scroll down. Shopping on Bing is also a lot easier. Google of course, is the search engine powerhouse. It works well and has pretty much been the search engine staple for the past decade.

    It's mostly a matter of personal preference.

    Google is definitely a more robust search experience. However, I prefer Bing Maps' interface.

    It is such unclear question! What do you mean? Better for what? For making money? For looking catpics? For advertising? For watching videos? For maps/streetviews?
    Can you be more specific?

    I'd love if everyone start using it cause my websites are praticly ranked in every first page there while they are at second or third on google,
    the main difference is google is used by 90% of users

    The difference between Bing and Google: Both are really different from each other, apart from one similarity that's both are Search engines. Google is the most popular search engine while bing provides quality results to its users. I think it's better if you will use both of them and understand the differences.

    On a sidenote, did anyone else notice Bing's popularity seemed to rise in leaps and bounds ever since Skype added a mandatory "Search with Bing" option?

    Also as Microsoft now own Nokia phones more people will use Bing as it is the phones default search engine

    IF you mean which is the better search engine then I would go with google. Simple, Fast, Accurate.

    Google, Most definitely. Some websites Bing doesn't even think exist.

    You wanted facts. Because of this, here are the facts you should know: http://searchengineland.com/google-slightly-bing-yahoo-october-comscore-search-report-209459
    At the same time, consider the fact that Bing is almost non-existent in Europe and other continents, with Google being far superior. If we factor in mobile searches, the numbers go up towards Google. Bing is basically forced in on many Windows users. At the same time, if you stay focused on a Google SEO approach, you will inevitably start gaining traffic from Bing and Yahoo ;)

    Google, just like many have already said, is definitely the way to go just because the higher user base = higher traffic results. Now I would like to mention that it all really depends on your strategy though and if you're trying to sell a actual product or make money from ppc. I've personally had some successful Clickbank projects because I targeted Bing instead of Google, but only because it was campaign specific. For Example: My main keyword that I wanted to target had 2900 exact searches in Google with 81,000 competitor results but only a total of 410 exact searches in Bing. I started to build up links and traffic but never really had a high ranking success rate with Google, however Bing instantly pushed me to page one due to my keyword rich content. Obviously it wasn't the big amount of traffic that I was hoping for but it was very targeted traffic which converted into actual sales. Ranking high for a competitive keyword in google can be good but why invest all the time/money if I can get the same result by ranking easier in Bing for 3 lower keywords and combine the traffic?

    Also sometimes its nice that most Bing traffic is U.S. traffic only. Especially if youre trying to make money through cpa offers that only pay out for U.S. traffic ;)

    Google is the best dude. No one ever says to Yahoo or Bing something. Everyone says Google it. So go Google it.

    Google has huge visitors and user base. But bing is catching up fast. Bing is the 2nd largest search engine from Google.

    talking from a webmaster point of view, this is not even a competition .

    i got 31% organic search traffic and bing is only 3% from that amount.
    Not to mention that it took it months to index all my website even if i sent a sitemap to bing webmaster. So, bing is kind of sleeping in their shoes.
    No wonder G still the best

    While I cannot personally get on with Bing, so always use Google, I've started focusing a lot more on getting my sites indexed with Bing. The only reason for this is that I understand that the iPhone and iPad now use Bing as the default search engine and I assume a lot of the less tech savvy wouldn't change the default search provider.

    It depends on what state you're located in - if it has any sense to optimize your site with Bing, of course you won't optimize it if there is no use of Bing in the state/country you're located in. BTW, Yahoo is powered by Bing technology, so it's using almost same ranking factors, keep it in mind when optimizing :)

    Do you mean Google ads or Bing ads? If you asking which one is better for advertising purpose, then it would be Google. It is because Google has number 1 spot in the worldwide in terms of traffic it is having as per shown in the Alexa website. Alexa website can be used to check how much traffic a particular site is having and what is the ranking.
