Hot on the heels of the announcement that Microsoft’s Bing & Yahoo will be teaming up to take on Google, StatCounter reports that Bing gained another 1% of the search market last month and is slowly but surely growing their share. In a preview of what’s to come with a joint Bing/Yahoo effort, their combined market share comes in at a little over 20%. Granted – it isn’t Google’s near 80%, but the opportunity to reach 20% of the search market with a Bing/Yahoo combined effort is worth paying attention to.
We’ve already had several clients start inquiring about testing a PPC campaign with Bing and I’m sure we’ll see more as we move into Q4 and start looking at 2010 budgets. Let us know if you want to look into a PPC campaign with Bing or any of the rest. We’d also like to hear about any recent experiences you may have had with Bing.
