Nostradamus himself predicts a big push from Bing. I personally hate but all they would have to do to get me using it here or there is clean things up a bit. I find their background gradients and pictures terribly distracting and annoying. Yeah, I am picky, whatever rip me for it if you like.
Anyway Bing stands a chance to gain market share for a few reasons:
- Their results are actually good
- They results don’t have as much noise (maps, tweets, images, videos, etc.) in them
- They are apparently buying their way into the browsers as the default search engine (Google currently has/had FireFox and Safari)
There was a time I was paying .04 to .08 cents a click on Facebook while everyone was ignoring Facebook’s advertising platform – I’d trade my house to pay .04 cents a click again.
Another opportunity *may* present itself. Go exploit it. Come back and thank me later.
Everyone has been concentrating on ranking and rocking Google SERPS and Paid Search. In December 2009 Microsoft was accounting for about 10% of searches. If this grows as some expect there could be huge opportunities in the AdCenter game. Start playing now, master it in time, drive some killer affiliate stuff, and then enjoy the 12 months of record revenue. Before you know it everyone will be in there and it will be too late.
