Do You Bing?

Dina Bass reported in Bloomberg Businessweek that searches on Bing, Microsoft’s Internet search engine, are up 4 percent since its launch a year ago.

“If Microsoft’s goal was to hear Bing used as a verb, there are signs of success,” wrote Bass. “In April about 12 percent of all Web searches were performed (using Bing). While that doesn’t exactly make Bing a Google killer, it seems to be holding its own.”
