Bing Search Goes Visual

Bing is getting some reviews but so far it hasn't made Google so much as hiccup. But anyone who knows Microsoft knows that Microsoft is in this for the long haul. It'll keep plugging away 'til it gets where it wants to be: on top. Microsoft may never make it to the peak of Search Mountain (Google is already building condos there) but it can gain a healthy and sustainable market share.

Part of that effort is evolving Bing, including a nifty new way to search based on images -- a technique that also helps increase the install rate of the required Silverlight.

For me, I'm still not sure how Bing is a decision engine. I'm also unclear on how Bing does or will serve the enterprise and integrate with Microsoft's enterprise search tools. I'm hoping to talk to Microsoft soon and will report back on these matters.

By the way, I'm still looking for Bing users as well as Microsoft enterprise search customers. Either can e-mail me at [email protected]
