In the News It is no secret that Microsoft is doing whatever it can to eat away at Google's immense market share of the search market, with Bing being its most ambitious effort yet. Well, it seems the battle just got a whole lot dirtier, as The Financial Times has uncovered news that Microsoft has approached several news content providers, offering them money if they "de-index" their sites from Google.

I would have to agree to not wanting to use Bing.

It did a few times, but I am not happy with the results.

I feel a bit like getting custom seelcted rubbish reminding me on the stuff I would find through portal sites like MSN or YAhoo. I feel a lot better servered with Google still - MS will dumb down search results, that is what I am afraid of.

Of course I am pragmatic. If there is something I can't find with G., I 'd look at Bing -- but it is far too early to see how this pans out. Lets see what Google got up their sleeves in reply, should we? Also, it might simply terribly backfire on them as it is - we don't know.
