According to Nielsen, Microsoft’s search engine, Bing, is growing eight times faster than Google.
More consumers are Googling with Bing. According to the latest stats from research firm Nielsen, Microsoftâ€™s (MSFT) new search engine is growing faster than its archrivalâ€™s.
Which (according to the report) makes Bing the fastest-growing search outfit around. The new search engine has a growth rate more than eight times greater than Googleâ€™s. Which is quite an achievement given Googleâ€™s de facto monopoly over search coupled with the fact that Bing launched just a few months ago. According to some, this clearly makes Microsoftâ€™s new offering the new hot ticket in town, as it is picking up momentum despite Googleâ€™s repeated dismissals of it.
Still, given that Google is all but a monopoly (with â€œGoogle itâ€ virtually becoming a short cut to â€œlook it up on the Internetâ€ in much the same way that â€œXerox itâ€ is shorthand for â€œmake a photo copyâ€ one could argue that Bing has no place to go but up).
Still, even though this seems pretty impressive, Iâ€™m still utilizing Google as my engine of choice.
