Has bing failled?

    So recently i read that bing is losing market share and has fell bellow 10% on market share. Is bing just a fling?

    Personaly now that microsoft marketing budget is starting to become thin what is going to drive them to compete with google?
    SEMrush
    As a businessman and investor i know that if you have any presence in the market you need about 10% and sure bing has that but what is going to keep pushing their market share every month and keep things level?

    The bing search engine looks to become a Smaller competitor like the Zune, Gateway and now Bing.

    What do you think.

    I think Yahoo search is better than Bing myself.

    "Microsoft's Bing search engine will power the Yahoo website and Yahoo will in turn become the advertising sales team for Microsoft's online offering."

    I know, that is why I brought it up. Yahoo search should be powering msn, not the other way around. I get some weird results when I do a bing search

    I think Bing has a long way to go before being judged.

    Most power searchers and people who know a thing or 2 about search agree that Bing is delivering more relevant results than Yahoo. They have also made more technological advances in the last few months than Yahoo has over the past 10 years (Their webmaster console and IIS SEO software is awesome!)

    By the end of 2010 or early 2011 Bing will be delivering all search results on Yahoo and as such they will have around 30% of market share. If you haven't started figuring out how to rank on Bing yet you better get started or you'll be leaving 30% of your income behind pretty soon!

    My personal opinion - Bing was over hyped, and it failed to live up to that hype.

    To really compete against google, bing needs to offer a video sharing site, something like adsense, a better webmaster tools.

    All bing is, is live and msn renamed. There seems to be nothing new or any real improvements.

    a) A video sharing site has nothing to do with search quality
    b) It's called MSN AdCenter
    c) It DOES have better webmaster tools
    d) Just Live renamed? Try a few serious searches rather than just checking on your own rankings. LOOK at the results and how they are listed. Then tell me there are no improvements!

    Not at all, bings is alot more than Live was, with more relevant search results, cause of it's it using technology from powerset semantic search. Microsoft has a ads network https://adcenter.microsoft.com/ and have a video search engine http://www.bing.com/videos and mainly other country than USA are getting irrelevant results is because that they are more focusing on USA as a start, and bing has not at all failed, it has got more market share than microsoft has ever had on the search engine market, and deals with sites like Facbook and yahoo, so seems like it more a succes than a failure for now, but too soon to judge it.

    I've not had much of a play with Bing yet, though when I did I found that my results weren't quite as well targeted as Google, but it's early days yet. Personally I've always been more of a Google fan than a Microsoft one but it is about time someone threatened Google's search engine domination - whether Bing will be the thing to do it or not remains to be seen. Personally I doubt it, though I do expect that it'll gather a bit of a loyal following of its own.

    Bing returns a lot of subdomains from the same primary domain one after the other for certain searches

    I prefer Google before Bing. But sometimes, Bing shows me some more relevant results than Bing does. But hey, bing is in its earlier days now... it just got launched. Patience is a virtue, my friend.

    That is not true - when you use google, youtube appears in a lot of the results. In bing, video preview images rarely appear in the results.

    Why do the results have to be text results when we are in the 21st century? They dont. Bing list a video result, just like all of the rest of the results.

    As a video blogger its important for me to have my videos and preview images listed in the search results. Not having a preview image that its a video might make people pass it by.

    I have used bing a lot, and I am really disappointed with the results and how much the site has been overhyped.

    No doubt google is largest s-engine of past and coming era, but Bing is going up day by day and may will win the war of search and Biz.

    Bing works great for me. The one way in which they beat Google hands down, at least for me, is by sending traffic that converts.
