The wait is over, Microsoft's new search engine, Bing is now live. It was rumored to be going live on June 3rd, but it went live some time early this morning. Techmeme is buzzing on the launch and Microsoft seems to be getting some pretty good press about the early launch.

The demo last week wasn't as positive as what I see now from the community. I guess people like what they are seeing.

Try it yourself now at Some SEOs are joking that BING stands for, ""But It's Not Google." It is not Google, that is true. The forum discussion is pretty positive, so I thought I ask you in a simple poll, do you like it?

I tried some of my keywords in bing to test it: Keywords "merchandising strategy" (1st in, 1st in, nowhere in Keywords "signatrue video" (1st in, 11th in, nowhere in Keywords "virgin corporate strategy" (3rd in, 1st in, nowhere in I spend an awful amount of time researching and composing my articles, and case studies. It appears to be the old same story; Microsoft does not care about quality content. One more thing, it is my opinion that they handicap sites with Google Adwords.
