Can Bing Knock Out The Champ? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Ads by Google

If you ever decide to play a little game of word association, and someone says “search on the Internet“, the chances are you will immediately reply “Google”. “To Google” has become the everyday verb for searching online, due to the site’s near-total dominance in the search industry. But I say “near-total” because one search engine, despite operating at a loss, is making themselves a continual irritant, and an obstacle to Google’s aim of total Internet domination. That search engine is of course Microsoft’s Bing.

The constant attempts to one-up each other means that they are constantly innovating, and that is good for the end user (that’s you by the way). But with all the changes that occur on both sites, which search engine is actually the best? Is Bing really the hopeless underdog or do they have a huge trump card that could upset the proverbial apple cart? That’s the subject of today’s infographic, which looks at each site’s search features.

After examining the infographic, what do you think?  Is Google the undisputed untouchable heavyweight champion of cyberspace? Or is Bing the Internet equivalent of Rocky Balboa, ready to come into the ring and snatch the title away?  What search feature is the one that could decide it all? All opinions and further boxing analogies in the comments below.

    When i decided to switch my every thing from Google to Microsoft and started from my gmail. everything in MS cloud services including Outlook.com, Skydrive are pretty well. Microsoft won’t lose any chance to get the search market and will spent as much money as needed to outpace Google. but to mention that bing is not still in position to replace Google. specially in non English language (I have tried Persian).
    Google’s large selection of search shortcuts, search by images, very big index size, ranking policy, default implementation on majority of browsers (Chrome, FF, Opera, and most others) make it almost impossible for bing to replace it.
    I administer a website with almost 20000 pages, which almost 19000 pages are indexed by Google and not half of it is indexed by bing.
    I, as a person who really wanted to leave Google could not do it. but Microsoft is also know for not accepting defeat. they spent as much as needed, they work hard. hopefully at a time they replace Google.
    to mention that bing is still working for normal users, but not for power searchers.
    ………
    Google’s new policy to rank sites based on plus ones can be an even more long term threat for its competitor. as the result will be almost impossible to deceit because of users recommendation of quality.

    Let’s compare March 2011-2012 figures. Google gained 1.1 billion. Bing gained 0.4 billion.

    Unless Google slows down significantly, I don’t think Bing stands a chance.
