Should You Switch To Bing Box From Google Custom Search?

A WebmasterWorld thread has webmasters discussing the possibility of using Bing Box, Microsoft Bing's do-it-yourself search engine on their web sites.

Bing Box

As you can see, we currently use a Google Custom Search Engine here but would I consider switching to Bing Box? Sure. Why not?

WebmasterWorld members are interesting in switching for many reasons. Here is one webmaster's post:

I'm looking for a replacement for "AdSense for Search". Quite frankly Google has enough of my visitor's behavior.

I know using this gives MS the data too, but at least it reduces the amount of info Google gathers in a day.

One webmaster gave us his early impressions:

  • Easy to set up
  • Results are excellent
  • Results look good
  • Search box books better the Google
  • Likes the pop-up results window
  • It loads in all test browsers quickly except for Opera, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't, strange.
Will you give Bing Box a try?
