replacing MSN Live. Actually, it’s now called a “search decision engine”. Is Bing a real threat to Google? Maybe, maybe not. It will all depend on the user uptake and search relevance. How well does your recruitment website rank in Bing?
There is a lot of confusion in the industry caused by different advice on SEO

Let's face it; unless you are going to spend an enormous amount of money and resources on SEO, you are going to waste your money trying to become the number 1 search result for "jobs".
