    That's much lower than I had expected. I though for sure Google would be in the neighborhood of about 80%

    Actually, Bing is at 16% of market share in October 2012. It was 14.8% October 2011. Bing is hustlin'!

    Runners up with less than 30% market share between them both.

    They are moving forward, I will give them that, but how do you catch up to a behemoth like Google

    They gotta get people off of the phrase "Google it" and come up with a new phrase that catches on

    When you verbify a noun, you automatically come out as the frontrunner. Fact.

    Google definitely has the advantage there. It's almost muscle memory for me at this point - that and I use Chrome, so whenever I need to search something I just throw my query into the URL bar.
