Microsoft Releases Bing Search Engine

Bing Search Engine

Bing is here! Microsoft’s new foray into the search space promises to be a ‘decision engine’ giving those looking for answers immediately, well, an answer immediately! I liken it slightly to Twitter where answers to questions can be found immediately. I have used Bing quite a bit now and I must say I am impressed!

Here is the ‘official’ e-mail from Microsoft:

As you may know, Microsoft recently announced plans for a new search experience called BingTM. We’re excited to let you know that Bing is officially being released to the marketplace today.

What is Bing?
Put simply, Bing is a decision engine that offers consumers a way to make informed choices fast. From shopping and travel to healthcare, local and more, Bing delivers great results in a rich, well-organized experience to help consumers easily accomplish key tasks.

What does Bing Mean for Me?
Microsoft is committed to Search and Search advertising, and is dedicated to providing you the best value for your online advertising dollar. The innovative Bing search experience is designed to maximize opportunity to capture and retain new users, grow query share, and most importantly, help you make the most of your online advertising investment.

In the coming months, a broad reaching awareness campaign spanning television, web, radio, and print will inform and entice consumers to try Bing. Now is a great time to take a look at your current search strategy and take advantage of the momentum that this campaign will drive.
