    After just starting using bing PPC ads, i now know why I never used bing and why no one does. You can do the shaddiest PPC things with bing and they just overlook it and it makes the search really low quality. People don't even have to make a lander lol its ridiculous. Trying to compete with all the people just blowing through coupon money is prolly impossible right now. They should atleast make it so you have to make your own lander or something.

    Bing is not a good search engine simply because its results are inaccurate, you need only to have a lot of backlinks to be first.
    Consequently also the campaigns you do on Bing are affected by this drop in quality.

    Recently Bing is working with Yahoo and hope they can make this search engine better.
    In any case both suck, the only factor of merit is that Yahoo has patented the Trust Rank and other technologies that have made their search engine "slightly" better.

    I've never had an issue with Bing's results. In fact, I'll use Bing if I'm searching for something and do not want Wikipedia, Amazon, or YouTube to come up as much. As far as PPC with Bing goes, I agree about being able to use shady tactics, although they sometimes remove your ad if they catch you directly using hoplinks.

    Bing is good for US traffic only, nothing else

    I would say bing is for older people and people who don't know much about computer, so it's best to do these kind of ads. But bing will soon start to pick up the base, it's new so you can't really expect them to be top notch

    Bing is easy to rank on mainly because its a bad search engine. Reason why Google is one.

    I love bing than google. Their video search is awesome. They respect privacy, they don't read your emails to catch bh links.

    Bing shouldn't exist, they need to shut it down ASAP, you can't work with their results on a regular basis, every now and then when I fight with Google I try to make up with Bing and the results are so ridiculous that I have to make up with Google again, can't break up with her! (I hope it's a female)

    There is less competition on Ads and if someone can get USA traffic can convert well. In any case yes, it's bad search engine.

    You're actually right, intuitively I think the people who use Bing are people who can't work out how to change their browser back to search through Google by default lol...

    Bing results are alright for most of the keywords and people who think they need spam links to rank in bing should shut up as they know f.uck all.
    As for the adverts, it's not a bad place to be in... they have some traffic and it converts so I'm happy.
