    The numbers speak for themselves – stick with Google. Microsoft’s Bing advertisement system is up and coming, and will be a real contender in the near future, but that’s still a year (or more like two) away. Google Adsense is still incredibly cheap and easy to implement, whereas Bing ads haven’t been as field-tested as I’d personally like. Stick with what works, until the numbers reflect better change.
    I’d imagine if Bing managed a 25 or 30% market share I’d just quickly, or try to integrate both.
