Default Bing Vs Google Adwords?

Hi Guys-
Any opinions out there about the pros and cons of PPC advertising using BING vs. Google adwords? Anyone had any experience they can share?
THANKS

Generally bing has lesser cost and lesser users. All you get is less clicks, less impressions and even less investments. Google on the other hand has more users, more impression and even require high investments, generally.

Bing has nothing special than Google. Google is famous and it ppc has a higher rate than all other competitors. Bing is the second best competition in the market and you can get quite low rate then google which is the most attractive part of Bing for many peoples. But remember: that higher rate of google can give you faster response than others.

Hi,

I've tried both. As mentioned Bing is much cheaper, but for me it doesn't deliver as good results as Adwords.

My suggestion is to trial test both and see results.

I say test them both and see which does better but if you can I would try both for at least 6 months before determining one over the other.

I've split tested both in the past, about a year ago, and noticed that Adwords trumps Bing.

Bing just doesn't have the market yet. Maybe in a few years they will be able to compete with google, but right now they're not close.

Bing is cheaper, that's true, but you don't get as many clicks and they don't seem to convert as well even if they do click.


I was getting at least a 200% ROI with Adwords and at the same time I was barely breaking even with Bing.


I still like the bing/microsoft advertising platform much better because they support is top notch. They don't make you feel like a peon because you're not investing thousands every day. It would sometimes take me a month to get a response from adwords, and that's no good.

I've had much more reliable returns from focusing on Google. Bing motivates people because of it's cheaper prices but simply doesn't have the traffic that Google does.

My Suggestion is Google Adwords is Best than Bing. Because you Get More Visitors & Get more Leads in Google adwords compare with Bing Adwords.

Google is far way better than Bing. Google can assure you to increase your ROI, whereas Bing can't. I will suggest you to go for Google Adwords.
