If Google's results keep getting worse, and if they annoy people too much with the + thing, and if the FTC slaps them hard in these anti-trust hearings... Google would have a lot of things going against it in the search biz.
I wonder exactly how much it would cost for a new competitor to get started...
Do you know why Bing gets search traffic?
They pay for it. They give out gift cards every month or so for people to search 20 times a day. There are millions of moms doing that all the time each day.
So who knows exactly what the REAL traffic is for Bing?
