“Bing!” Goes the search

bingleAccording 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, Microsoft’s (MSFT) new search engine is growing faster than its archrival’s.

google-logoWhich (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 Google’s. Which is quite an achievement given Google’s de facto monopoly over search coupled with the fact that Bing launched just a few months ago. According to some, this clearly makes Microsoft’s new offering the new hot ticket in town, as it is picking up momentum despite Google’s repeated dismissals of it.

Still, given that Google is all but a monopoly (with “Google it” virtually becoming a short cut to “look it up on the Internet” in much the same way that “Xerox it” is shorthand for “make a photo copy” one could argue that Bing has no place to go but up).

Still, even though this seems pretty impressive, I’m still utilizing Google as my engine of choice.
