Yahoo VS Bing

    Interesting ... http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/2009/06/05/report-bing-replaces-yahoo-as-2
    SEMrush
    Bing is now number 2 search engine ... overtaking Yahoo! BUT that is just a preliminary round!

    FYI, I'm very new to Bing (where was I in last months?). I'm not sure how good Bing is over Yahoo ... Had been using Yahoo (and Google) for many years & still thinking that Google is the best.

    In my opinion, Yahoo is an easy target for Bing but Google isn't.

    So, who will win - Bing or Yahoo?

    Definitely BING has greater chances to win the game. But it can't reach Google though.

    Why on earth would you say Google is the best? Google could not pull relevant results out of a paper sack. That's just like saying Mcdonalds has the best burger. It's cheap and slimy and does not set well on the stomach.

    Bing and Yahoo are both better than Google for searchers who are actually wanting to find what they are searching for. They use agorithms that go by content, and not some secret link building formula. Trying to figure out what Google wants is like trying to hack into the CIA.

    The bottom line is Google is a very poor and a very over-rated search engine that I have to admit has the marketing and advertising game down very well. It's too bad its results could not be better for those actually using the search engine for finding the things they are actually looking for.

    Bing seems to be pretty good at the starting, surely it will beat yahoo, but will be tough to reach google though!

    Bing shows good ranking for a short period of time.
    Time will come it will bet Yahoo but never with Google.
    Google is still on the top and there is a big possibility that Bing will ranked over with Yahoo.

    Well said :) The only thing is that google is more known than the others. For example , i cannot use any other search engine , even though i know the big G aint pulling relevant results.

    I think it just for short time because many user are "trying" it. The reason is Bing is made by Microsoft, and many user would like to know how good are them

    Yup.
    I agree with root-b.
    Yahoo more than search engine.
    Everyone has yahoo mail.
    However, for us... bing is our next chance to dominate

    I think Bing will surpass Yahoo for sure. To surpass Google, it might need some work.
    Who knows, Cuil failed!

    Tomorrow there might be a ching, kong, or even Pikachu search engines :)

    One thing for sure is, Google will not stay on the top forever; in the future, some SE will surpass Google.

    That's very interesting. If it's true that bing cares more about content than backlinks, then that may be good news for many of our websites.
