Web search statistics show Bing stagnant, Google growing - Page 2

That is had about 8.5% when MS switched names and that two years ago their search engine had more marketshare than they do currently.

So now you're my interpreter? No thanks and "Apple Sucks" is not what I meant or have I ever meant. Unlike you who must have Microsoft Sucks tatooed on one of your body parts though I dare not guess which one.

It's premature to state that Bing is a failure after 5 months only as a new product with 10% regardless of what solipsism is saying its age is. that's all

Give it up already.

Good you are here evil twin!

Way to go, one of your finest! I knew typically you can not understand more than 3 words put in the same line (sentence for the rest of us), but you really blew up this one badly! It is well below your average.

Try again. This time read the last line of the article. Ignore the rest!

Here it is again, just in case you get distracted. Read it again s-l-o-w-l-y

Microsofts Bing, MSN and Live Search combined amounted to just 3.5% of the global web search market.

Is that some sort of self proclamation about yourself? perhaps it is just ironic that you call yourself that iStud yet cannot understand a simple comment from somebody who calls themselves techstud.

I can certainly not understand you! Your English is appalling.

Honestly, what?

now that we have stated our personal preferences, i suggest you simply don't read what does not interest you - nor bother to comment grumpily on it (unless being a sourpuss is what you enjoy!). AI doesn't force you to click on every or any article.

on the other hand, if the criticism is AI doesn't post enough articles these days that you find worth reading, that is certainly a valid point to assert.

Go make me a cuppa tea

Notice the press release says "Microsoft Sites grabbed 9.9 percent". These PRs always use some kind of colorful terms to characterize the Microsoft part of the data. Could be they are being paid through a number of "collaborations with Microsoft. Proof is in the press releases.

Here is the full October 2009 press release

Compare this to a 2008 press release.

This would be interesting if Bing were more useful and less annoying; as it is, it's too much three-stooges....

By removing this from its "core" rankings, ComScore greatly inflates Bing's importance, because the vast majority search related to maps, local search, and "user generated video" (why not just say "YouTube") are all owned by Google. Microsoft's own "Soapbox" effort to match Google's YouTube failed and was shut down in August after a three year run.

For some reason comparing apples with apples doesn't sit well with this writer.

When looking at more neutral statistics that don't gerrymander figures to arrive at a desired conclusion, the facts are very different.

Net Application's search engine market share figures have been tracking the industry since at least 2000. For October 2009, the latest full month recorded, it gave Microsoft Bing just a 3.49% share of all search globally, along with 0.08% share for MSN Search and 0.01% share for Microsoft Live Search. Yahoo Search took second place with 6.68%, leaving the lion's share for Google at 84.53%.

What Makes Net Applications figure more reliable - time in market? Or that Bing's market share is merely 3.49%? The assertion made by the author is that their figures are somehow more reliable with ZERO indication as to why.

Articles like this are why Daniel Errant Bilgepump (and his Prince McClean shadow) get my goat. He makes some good points but simply cannot resist the microsoft bashing. He someone managed to slip it in on Appleinsider in an article on Chrome OS. WTF?

If Bing has nothing to do with Apple, then neither does mention of Google or any non-Apple application. Or for that matter any peripheral device not made by Apple. I doubt if you would find many threads not mentioning any of the above.

What the Bing results show is people are sufficiently dissatisfied with Google to look at an alternative.

I can think of a lot of thngs that have to do with Apple products that arent made by Apple. How many thousands of iDevice accessories are there? What about all their partners?

Since Google is growing in marketshare it looks like the only dissatisfied people are Yahoo users, because that is where the Bing increase came from.

Yes, like Google and like Bing.

Suggest reading the thread. These are Google users looking at an alternative. The point is they looked at Bing. Not whether or not Bing was acceptable.

I've used Bing lots of times now and have found it to be useful in its own way. But it's no Google, and I doubt if it ever can be. For starters, Bing doesn't have Google's depth of search and wide variety of services. But on the other hand, Bing did/does not have the amount of garbage that plugs up some Google searches. (If you've ever tried searching for information on an IC or other electronic component, you'll know what I mean.)

Google puts me off because I have a Tor exit node running on my network, and it's quite clear that they don't like the confounding effect this has on their data collection processes. (Yes, I make the assumption that Google knows a lot more than they tell and is perhaps a bit evil in this area.) What they say is "your computer is making automated queries and has been blocked to "protect" other users". They really mean that my running a Tor exit node results in them seeing a much less accurate view of what I and others on my network are really looking for. And I'm reasonably sure they don't like it.

That is what drives me to Bing, and yes, I'm juggling the two search engines at the moment. However, Bing comes across as annoying with its insistence on being "image heavy" where Google gets straight to the point. I'd like to see Bing move to a model where the search page and results are straightforward and to the point, without the background image (although the search hotspots in said image are kind of cool).
