Why is bing not popular as Google?

    Hello users!
    I'm a newcomer here. I've used both Google & Bing and just had a question because bing provides many reliable features...
    What's your take on this!
    Thanks.

    Back then when google came, it became popular because of its better results.

    These days its popular because people are on Android and google is the default engine there.

    Microsoft does not has a phone OS as popular as Android.

    One word - Chrome.

    OK, another one too - advertising. Duckduckgo advertises more than Bing, doesn't have a native platform, that I know of (such as brave browser for bing), yet still has 3/4 of the traffic that bing does.

    Google is everywhere.

    There are microsoft haters that will boycott bing. They don't want to like it. They find it comical. I like their webmaster tools though. Bing isn't elsewhere, other than online as a search engine. Bing has not invaded the personal lives of its user through implementation of its software in devices.

    I think you are saying right that Bing is not collecting personal data from your computer for advertising like Google because i see many times that if we are searching for any thing to buy online ..... then after if you are going to any blog or websites who is using adsense then related ads will appear there ..... same with facebook.

    Bing webmaster tools is also good.

    According to my experience bing is very good for image search ...... you can compare with google ..... I got always good resolution images from bing.

    Both are king in his area ....

    For many search criteria like torrent file (For music or movie) i see that duckduckgo and bing result is more better than google.

    So i think we should not compare both because in many case Google is superior but in few case bing is better than Google.

    There's also Google Earth (and Streetview). I know that Bing has a version of Streetview but their version doesn't cover anywhere near as many places

    Can't find the article anymore, but it said that they considered two other names, but settled on "Bing", because it was better sounding and easy to remember. THAT was a mistake imo. If you saw the other two names you'd think the same. Secondly, if you want to beat your competition you'll have to be much better at what they do.

    I don’t think anyone is surprised that objectively, Google is the better search engine. It’s been around longer, it’s by far the most popular, and it’s constantly innovating. I was surprised at how similar the two search engines were in terms of features. Bing even does a few things better, like video. But, while I occasionally preferred Bing’s results to Google for general searches, Google’s ability to dig things out of the darkest corners of the internet is just too valuable. It’s a closer call than I expected, but Google is still the best search engine around. :)

    How can you compare them in general? Google is the basis of all search engines, the most popular, widespread, convenient and well-known. while I don't even remember how the home page looks like on Bing
