Bing Vs Google

Over the past 10 years Google has acquired quite a grip on the search engine market, leading the majority market share for quite a while now. With severe popularity and brand awareness Google has put itself in such a strong position it’s almost impossible to compete.

As you can see Bing is really starting to gain momentum but it will be sometime before it seriously competes for the top spot, however I imagine Google are without doubt looking over there shoulder.
