    Google is the king of the search engine castle, yes. But when I observe less frequent internet users (like my mom, for example), she doesn’t go to Google straight away. She uses Bing because it’s built in to Internet Explorer. Bing may never take Google’s place, but it can still be a nice source of traffic, depending on your keywords.

    Google isn’t going anywhere for quite some time! I wouldn’t be surprised if Google outlasts most of our lifespans.

    Hi Kate, That’s a good comparison between Google and Bing but I don’t thing Bing’s result page is better than Google’s. You are right when you said everyone have their preference. Google is my favorite. Thanks for taking you time out on this. Regards: WorldWebSurfers.com

    Google is the king of Searching engine market and has been covering more than 82 % search engine market. Therefore, Bing can not effects the market of search engine but can add the more features on its services.
