Bing’s first few days

Bing, Microsoft’s new search engine, offers some great features. The attractive landing page with a single stunning photo as backdrop to the simple search box sets the stage for a different experience. There are some interesting tools that come with search results – a table of contents, cool travel feature and others – but how has Bing performed it’s first few days?

Initial reports from Stat Counter claimed Bing exceeded Yahoo! traffic. Search engine land posted a great article Did Bing Leapfrog Yahoo? Not exactly. which compares tracking metrics for Bing’s performance compared to Google and Yahoo!.

In the world of online marketing, few things compare with a good search presence. Bing certainly adds a new face for the world of search. How it catches on, and how people use it, will affect a good SEO strategy in time to come.
