  1. So what do you think about the difference in comScore versus Nielsen reporting? Does it reflect on the reliability of either metrics service, or should we just consider that we’re looking at a statistical dead heat between Bing and Yahoo for all intents and purposes?

    Great to discover your blog, by the way – looking forward to catching you in my reader in the future. 🙂

  2. I never knew why with Microsofts power they were not #2 (or #1 for that matter). Seems they got to high for themselves and lost sight. Too bad as I think they should & could be #1 in teh serach engine realm

  3. Amazing that google continues to grow and be dominant in search. Bing and Yahoo are doing everything they can yet they just can’t seem to make it work.
