The Bing Bounce

Microsoft's new search engine, Bing, is off to a rousing start, at least according to one measure: paid clicks. Paid clicks are up some 13 percent compared to the old MSN Live Search. (Now, doesn't Bing sound a whole lot better?)

Not only that, but Microsoft's share of search moved from an embarrassing 9.1 percent into the double digits at 12.1 percent. The share is still small, but is moving in the right direction.
