Why Microsoft is not dumping Bing or Why Should It!!

I read a good blog by Mary-Jo Foley stating that Bing is here to
stay. Catch her blog here Why Microsoft isn’t dumping Bing anytime soon.

And why not, it’s fast, slick, gives good search responses, and it’s a great tool for Microsoft to leverage Windows Phone on, plus Bing has other market places uses for Microsoft.

If the truth be told I do use Google search. Let be honest for ages Google has pretty much been the first port of call for must internet searches, how many times have you heard someone say, “Ohhh just Google it” or even said it yourself.

Google has pretty much come to mean search, in the same was biro and hoover have come to be a type of thing, rather than just a brand of a type of thing. That in itself is an impressive achievement, and the Google engine is a good search engine.

But for over a year now I have been “Binging It” and Bing has been my first choice of search tool, if that fails then I move on to Google, sometimes I will use both for specific reasons. But Bing is my first choice.

Most of the time Bing comes up trumps, and there have been plenty times that Google could not find something, or the relevant result was much further down the page than on Bings search result.

The World needs a strong engine line Bing, to give balance to Google; and Microsoft has a set of pretty cool plans for integrated search that could not happen without something as deep and powerful as Bing.

And perhaps more importantly, I just love those Bing home pages images
