Bing is a Huge Success and Google Confirms it!!

Morning Folks!!

When Microsoft finally entered the search arena they did it in a big way and Google was unexpectedly surprised and put back on their heels. The proof is Google announcing an operating system that is a year away at best. What else could they do? Looks like Google was caught flatfooted and their bottom line is going to suffer at the worst possible time. They underestimated Bing. Microsoft is going to hurt Google and it will take at least a year for Google to get off the mat. They have been hit with a body blow from the mighty giant. In the meantime, Bing is taking market share as it improves and gets some pretty good reviews. Sit back and enjoy the show. It's the one bright spot in a lot of bleakness.

Add the mountain of trademark suits being filed against Google and I would say that Google is in for some very rough days and their stock will start to reflect that once folks figure out that Google is losing market share and is vulnerable for the first time. Personally I think Google will bow in light of all these lawsuits, however they will make many millions each and every day they delay.

So if the saying is “As GM goes so goes the Nation” and GM is belly up, what is the future of the newest biggest company on earth? What will a real challenge to Google do to Google? When it comes to search engines, I just have 2 words......'Alta Vista'.

Have a GREAT Day!

    Great to see this happening – it reminds me of the effect Firefox has had on Internet Explorer. Competition can only be good :)

    Bing has made ZERO impact here in the UK. The only way it is getting an uplift in traffic is because Microsoft is linking traffic off its pages to its search engine to find results rather than being taken straight to the article.
    I wish Google would get close up and personal with Apple to develop a real operating system (Say off linux like they did with firefox in browsers) And finally kill Microsoft. Google technical ability, Apple marketing ability.
    I think Google will slay Microsoft within 10 years.

    Bing is a huge success? A threat to Google? Really?
    My goodness Rick. Your intimate knowledge and perspective on domain names is second to none, but search engines? Not so much :-)
    When you take into account the unsustainable mountain of marketing money that is being spent to promote Bing right now, the market share gains are modest at best and hardly a threat to Google. Bing is in a fight for 2nd place with Yahoo. This has little relevance to Google.
    Secondly, Google’s timing and announcement about their Chrome OS plans has absolutely zero to do with Bing, and everything to do with the expected release of Windows 7 next week at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference.
    Healthy competition in the search space would be a welcome sight for all of us. However, we are a long long way from seeing a true competitor to Google emerge.

    I don’t see Bing as a threat to Google. Google’s biggest threat is itself as it continues to expand into areas outside it’s core business and becomes more of a gigantic bureaucracy then it is already.
    One of the real problems with big business in this era is the pressure to keep the stock market price growing. This is what makes founders and their execs lose sight of the business and instead focus on ways to keep their enormous wealth sustained which is all based on the company’s stock price. Inevitably when you do that the business gets mucked up in the process.

    Maybe its me but I still know of no non-tech oriented people who use or even heard of Bing. It seems to me most average searchers continue to”Google It” because they don’t know of or understand any advantages Bing may offer over Google. At least not yet.

    Bing has two major advantages against Google…First one is they have a 4 charactered LLLL domain…Second is that they put very nice backround photos on the home page…Just kidding :)))
    I am not a Google fan but i don’t think that will happen at least for the next 5 years… Who knows ???
