Microsoft Launches New Campaign To Lure Google Users To Switch To Bing

7

Microsoft Bing today launched a new campaign that targets young people who consider the upcoming Valentine’s day. According to a recent survey from Bing and Impulse Research Corp., one in 10 people have ended a relationship on Valentine’s day and this year Bing is challenging people to reconsider their search habit and break up with Google.

Read about it below,

Bing treats you right. Whether you’re shopping for gifts for your sweetheart, looking to plan a singles night out or finding tips for a great date night, try Bing this Valentine’s Day and avoid getting burned.

•  Not all is fair in love and search. Whether you’re searching for a cuddly teddy bear or a diamond bracelet for your sweetheart, Google Shopping displays ads only from merchants that pay for ranking. Bing offers honest results so you get the best deals from across the Web.

•  Bing takes the initiative. Bing’s Snapshot feature includes one-click access for booking reservations or buying tickets so you have more time for doing and spend less time searching.

•  Bing keeps you and your friends connected. Skip search engines that keep you locked in their system and isolated from your friends. Bing brings all your friends from Facebook into its social search and leverages experts and enthusiasts from Twitter. Just last month there were new updates to the social sidebar, which mean even more available content from your Facebook friends right within your search. Looking for a fun, new restaurant for a night out with your single friends? A quick search on Bing will show you not only great Web results but also which friends have liked those search results and posted status updates, comments, photos and more about them, so you can easily find out if they are right for you.

•  Bing won’t spoil your sweetheart’s surprise. Just one click on “History Off” allows you to search in peace while you’re looking for gift ideas and more. Bing gives you the same trust you give it.

•  Bing showers you with tokens of affection. Just for searching, Bing Rewards lets you earn Amazon and Starbucks gift cards, free Xbox LIVE and Hulu Plus subscriptions, and even donations to charities. How can you say no to that?

Let Bing show you the love this Valentine’s Day. Try out Bing at http://www.bingiton.com.

    Shame that so much of Bing’s cool stuff is only available in the US. You know who doesn’t live in the US? MOST PEOPLE. As in 94.5% of the world population.

    For 94.5% of the world population Bing is a lame duck joke of a search engine, and will continue to be so until the day when Microsoft head its head out of its ass and look beyond the US borders.

    Shame, really.

    Only the GB version has search auto-complete, which is a pity. But that feature is baked into the IE address bar. Also, most of the ‘well-done’ features are only in the US version. The rest of the world is stuck with “Bing beta”.

    Once again, US only! We, the other 95% people on earth, don’t get social search results from Facebook, Bing Rewards, etc …

    I really would like to make Bing my search engine of choice, but as with the others, I don’t live in the US, so miss out on all the cool functionality.

    Alas, Google it must continue to be…

    They should do the same campaign for Windows Phone and advice people to break up with Android.
