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.

It really comes down to this. I use Google. Do those news companies want me to read their sites? Then they will stay with Google. If the don't want me to read their sites, then they will drop Google. Is the long term add revenue worth the one time bonus from MS?
