Google's one of the big boys when it comes to search but we shouldn't put all our eggs in one basket when it comes to SEO & "I want to be on the front page of Google". A recent study on Mashable.com shows Bing has recently nabbed 30% (that's an increase) of the search market in the US. That could increase even more as Bing rolls out new features / updates over the coming weeks & months.
Last week, Bing began the initial phase of rolling out a major redesign, in fact the “most significant” redesign in its three-year history. Today, the wait is over. This afternoon, Bing officially turned on its new design, and has made it available for everyone in the US.
The new Bing is now integrates search and people in our social networks through a dedicated social sidebar.
