Hurray for Bing!

bingFor those of you with your heads in the sand, the media has been saturated for the past few days with Bing, the new search engine from Microsoft.  I’ve seen commercials running on television as well as a huge campaign on Hulu.  Bing.com is replacing Windows Live Search, and hopes to compete with web giant Google by offering specific and relevant search results. 

So why do I care?  Bottom line: my blog traffic is up this week, and the hits are coming from Bing!  I put up two posts on Thursday, one on David Carridine, the other on Colby Gage.  Bing directed traffic at me immediately, so I’m their new biggest fan.  If you go to Bing.com  and type “Colby Gage no hitter” in the search field, My Other Blog  is the second listing from the top!  SECOND FROM THE TOP BABY!  The only drawback is that The Master’s Table  is listed third and fourth because of the Other Blog RSS feeder running on that site.  This is the sort of duplication that “Search 2.0” is supposed to eliminate.  As far as I can tell, no traffic has come to The Master’s Table  searching for Colby Gage or David Carridine, so it seems to work well none the less.
