    Is Bing A Serious Contender?
    I'm curious about whether Bing is making any headway in competing with Google?

    I personally prefer their search results because they have fewer 'authority' sites like Ask.com and Wikipedia at the top of the SERPs.

    Also I'm seeing better CPC results with Bing Ads...

    What's your opinion?

    I'm hoping Bing gets the infrastructure they need to index a lot more pages.

    Bing is owned by Microsoft, Microsoft bought Nokia, Microsoft want Nokia to be the biggest mobile producer of mid range products. Mobile is important but Google also knows this. Microsoft are doing as much as they can to take it to Google, who knows, I hope we will see less Google in the next decade....

    This will no longer be true, we've been testing the Bing Product Ads which is about to replace (or already has) the free product listing. Google is pretty far ahead in terms of product ads/ppc traffic.

    Yep, Bing's PLAs came out of beta at the end of March and is now PPC.
