There should be an image here!I have to admit, Bing has done quite well for itself lately despite all odds being stacked against it. But then again, Microsoft has advertised Bing on just about every product or service available.

Clearly though, the marketing blitz is beginning to work. Bing is reported to be seeing significant growth, likely at the expense of other search engines.

News on the street is that a Yahoo-Bing merger would seal the deal and making Bing nearly unstoppable in the growth department. Is it enough to hurt Google? Not yet, but with growth like Bing has been seeing, anything is possible.
