    Bing Now Bigger Than Digg, Twitter and CNN

    With the headlines that Microsoft’s new search engine Bing (bing) has been grabbing, it’s easy to forget that it only went live about a month ago. Since its launch at the beginning of June, it has given Google pause and even had its own web infomercial.

    But none of that matters if Bing doesn’t grow and find a way to compete with Google (Google). So after a month, where are we? We knew that Bing was growing, but the numbers being released tonight tell a tale of success, as Bing is now the 13th most visited site on the web.

    According to Compete.com, Bing was able to amass 49.57 million unique visitors in its first month as Microsoft’s official search engine. Bing’s traffic trumps that of Digg (Digg) (38.96 million) Twitter (Twitter) (23 million), and CNN (28.54 million). We want to note that this focuses on U.S. visitors, since Compete does not track international visits.

    Bing is now only beaten by 12 other websites according to the Compete numbers. Interestingly enough, one of those websites is Live.com, its predecessor, which actually garnered 79.4 million visits in June. This can mostly be attributed to the fact that a lot of Microsoft services, most notably Hotmail, are on the Live domain.

    Still, Bing is showing some solid numbers for its first month in existence. That said, it’s got a long way to go before it can begin to challenge Google’s top position in search.

    Cool, although I trust more Alexa ranking But obviously all of these statistic websites are far from being correct

    Good thing to see, but I still prefer Google

    For me Google brings more relevant results.

    What do you mean by that?

    I don't like how people don't like Bing because it is not "relevent"? When you use that word, do you mean that the results are not related to what you are searching for, or simply that they are not similar to Google's?

    When I type "Owls" into Bing, I get some stuff on the The Purdue University Online Writing Lab, owls (the animal), and Web Ontology Language. All are acceptable results.

    When I go to Google and type in "Owls", I get just about the same results.

    Now, if I want to narrow it down, to let's say "Owls animal", then:

    Bing: I get a bunch of different informative articles about owls and different species of owls, as well as pictures.

    Google: I get information about articles, except 1 result is about Harry Potter. No images of owls.

    ---------

    So in this random search that I just did, Bing won. But that's not the point: Both SEs had "relevant" searches. Unless you can give me an example where I am wrong, I rest my case.

    Bing is most likely getting a boost from the release of Windows 7 due to Bing being set as the default search.

    The Bing serps are good. The question is how good the spam filters are for Bing once seo's start targeting it. The SE's tend to stagnate when the spam filters can't keep up.

    Hi,

    Off topic but just gotta ask.

    How did you get ? marks instead of " ' "

    Looks uniquely different.

    As a SEO technician, i would say Bing has a more definite and better result than Google. I am still to find out their ranking algorithm but looks like they have asimple algorithm than google.
