Bing gains 20% share of UK search

By 

When it comes to search, it can often seem that Google is the only show in town, so it’s interesting to note that Microsoft’s Bing search engine is now powering as many as 20% of the UK’s online searches.

Comscore reports that Bing has surpassed 20 percent market share in the UK. So what’s driving this growth? Reports suggest that strategic syndication partnerships with firms like Gumtree and new services such as Bing Shopping and Bing Ads Editor for Mac have helped too

Raven Beeston of Bing UK says: “These figures clearly demonstrate Bing’s growing presence within the search market. We’ve already seen great success, and our journey is only just getting started. Over the past year, we’ve announced syndication partnerships, and new product launches, showcasing Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to search. Bing understands the conversations that consumers are having, and empowers marketers to harness these insights to make meaningful connections.”

Do you use Bing as a searcher or an advertiser to driver your sales?
