Derrick Connell, General Manager at live Search, gave an interview to Robert J. Murray which he has published at Search Engine Land.
Derrick stressed that to remain amongst the big three personalization is what counts most. He said that the search industry is not yet fully grown so there is lot of scope for competition. He informed, “The Live Search Index includes more than 5 billion documents, more than 400 million images, and more than 3 million instant answers.”
On the market share Derrick commented, “Over the last nine months, we focused intently on bringing Live Search from beta to final version. With our search experience now in the right place for widespread consumer use, we are just beginning the execution of our broad marketing strategy, as well as building strategic partnerships that we expect will expand and grow our user base over time.”
