    Its nice, but how is it that Bing's video search can just take video content with out asking the content owners? Its one thing to use thumbnails in search results but to use the site's videos as well?

    I am interested to see how Bing performs and is accepted among the user base.

    I find it odd that BING does not seem to see that the index.html page on my site reports a 301 – moved permanently.

    In fact Bing has cached this information and does not properly index the site…

    DesignerFied: I think video sharing sites provide embed code for this end. There is nothing illegal in embedding a video on your blog, so why would it be different in the case of Bing?

    dereck009: Yea if its from embed codes I completely under stand. But I have a video on my site with out embed codes.

    Yet Bing is still taking it. I don't really care I kind of like the live preview of a video.

    Basically I know for a fact that they aren't using embed codes from the sites I work with. So what gives them the right to just take peoples video content?

    There should be some way to block Bing from taking it. Kind of like how you can block Google images from taking images.

    We are going to see if Microsoft is going to take a stand with Bing! But sad to notice that MSDN Blog is gone.

    Bing?! Seriously, that was the best you could come up with? This is the worst search engine I have seen in a while. Follow the link below and you will see why. I searched for digital cameras under 200 dollars and clicked on shopping. Then sorted by price and the first hit is a waterproof camera case for $175,000.00.  The lowest price camera found was $8700. On page 17! Is this a joke? Microsoft says it is a decision engine, and I suppose that's true in my case. I will be going back to Google faster than you can say Bing! Decision made.…/search

    Oh by the way the $175,000 camera case retals for about $180 on other sites. What kind of scam is this bing thing anyway?

    I don't see any way to add my URL to Bing. I'm ranked near the top for the main search phrase in my industry on Google but nowhere in Bing. And there is no link to upload to Bing one's URL.

    There are serious issues with "bing" and webmasters claim they are not being indexed. These same webmasters are being told to do some work on their websites (bing support) when there is nothing wrong with their websites. The problem lies with "bing" search architecture and Microsoft is not about to admit it. Content does rule but when "bing" cannot find the content then you have a problem. And "Live" search was a much better branding identity than "bing", another huge blunder by Steve Balmer. Microsoft's attempt to catch up to the competition is further away now than it ever has been.
