Google's good news: Microsoft cannibalizes Yahoo search share

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft sure is gaining search share 
| fast. Too bad it's cannibalizing Yahoo 
| rather than gaining on Google.

Playing PPC Catch Up: Microsoft AdCenter

,----[ Quote ]
| Here are some things Iâve seen change and 
|     * AdCenter Desktop Editor â My only 
|     qualm here is that this is only for PC 
|     (come ON Microsoft, stop it, we are 
|     computer users too, and no this is not 
|     making me want to buy a PC).
| [...]
|     * Support Your Competitors Products â 
|     They arenât your competitors when it 
|     comes to your advertising. Get over it, 
|     k?
|           o Mac Support for Excel Plugin 
|           and Desktop Editor (while youâre 
|           at it can you tell the Excel 
|           people to make Excel Mac like 
|           Excel PC? Thanx.)
|           o Google Chrome Support (it 
|           works, but can we remove the 
|           warning?)



Bing nowhere to be found in iPhone OS 4.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Bing is still nowhere to be seen in the
| iPhone's Safari app, or anywhere else in
| the preview version of the OS. Besides
| Google, which remains the default search
| engine, the only other option remains
| Yahoo.


Microsoft Name No Match For Google Name in Search War


Is Microsoft Bing losing steam?

,----[ Quote ]
| It was more of a flattening out than a
| significant decline, Google actually fell
| even more, and one month does not make a
| trend. That said it's worth noting that
| Microsoft's Bing search engine experienced
| a decrease in market share in the U.S. for
| the first time in four months in March,
| according to new data from Experian
| Hitwise.


Social Media The Right Way

,----[ Quote ]
| I can understand the excitement when you
| look at how major retailers and brands are
| collectively spending billions on their
| Facebook and Twitter sites. Recently the
| granddaddy of them all, Microsoft, created
| 425,000 fans to its Bing page â wait for it
| â in one day. How did they do it? Easy,
| they paid for it.
| They offered âvirtualâ currency for the
| wildly popular FarmVille website. I know,
| Farmville? Turns out there are 82 million
| (really) players to tend crops and raise
| livestock on a virtual farm.


Is Microsoft Bing Trying To Kill Open Office?

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft Bing has many flaws, but this one
| seems to be the most outrageous one. If you
| try to search for OpenOffice on Bing, it will
| not show you the actual OpenOffice.org website
| but will show pages from random websites like
| OpenOffice.com or other non-OpenOffice.org
| websites.
| On the other hand Google search shows
| OpenOffice.org as the first search result.
| Bing has gone to an extent that in fact you
| will not find the OpenOffice website even in
| the 5th page.  So, a Bing surfer will never
| land on OpenOffice.org website.


Why I'll Be Blocking Bing Just Like I Did MS Live.com

,----[ Quote ]
| Webmasters all over the web have been noticing the same trend. Exposure
| Online says, "Microsoft is lying and intentionally screwing up your log
| files," and eKstreme.com says, "Yell if Microsoftâs Live.com Spammed You
| Too - Updated," and even other webmasters decided to block MS' bot before I
| did.
