I guess those Bing commercials are indeed working. CNet reports on a Neilson ratings survey that claims Microsoft's Bing search engine has captured 10% share.

Here is the break down:

NexTag Search 31,830 0.4% 0.3%
Local.com Search 16,314 2.9% 0.2%

Notice Yahoo dropped 4.2 percent from the previous month, but keep in mind, looking at month-to-month numbers is dangerous in this space.
