This week, Bing began its "double saving" days, which allow Bing users to get twice the amount of money back as they usually do in the cashback program, until the end of the month (unless Microsoft decides to cut it off early).

    Yes, bing is good but still not as powerful as google, my website has 500000 pages in gg but only 2 in bing, and it’s a very old and popular website.

    I’m not too sure about Bing yet either, I just can’t imagine Google users swapping for something else, and many of my sites don’t appear in Bing either.

    Not convinced here.

    I cannot comment on whether bing will extremely successful or not so much. Though I do know, since the launch of Bing.com and Bing Shopping my placement is ranked better than in google and has become our #3 source of web traffic search referrals for our blank apparel and hanes beefy-t’s. So what they are doing seems to be working.

    I now use bing more than google. I really like the search results and the fabulous pictures bing shows when first going to there site. Also Im tired of google being the top dog.

    I’m cheerleading for Bing or any search engine that gives Google a run for it’s money. I’m uncomfortable with Google taking such a large market share. Plus, I’ve seen Google become more selfish. What happened to “do no evil” that used to be written on their website. I can’t find it anywhere.

    I’m a search engine optimization specialist, so I use Google more than anything else because I have to.

    “Amazon, eBay, and Buy.com were the most visited retailers following Bing Shopping.” That’s a lot of buyers.

    Kudos to Bing! It has certainly come a long way since its launch. Its not easy (more like impossible) to overthrow the search engine giant Google from the #1 position but I can see that Bing is slowly closing in the gap.

    Bing is great. Most of the changes we have been seeing from google is because of Bing. Its about time we saw some competition. I hope we continue to see Bing grow.

    Anything that encourages people to Bing is a good thing, in my view.

    Next task – loosening eBay and Amazon’s death grip on online shopping! lol

    Hats off to Bing. It’s really a big thing to compete with Amazon, eBay who are big shots in shopping. But, Bing really made it and no wonders one day it could overtake Google in shopping
