Microsoft Attacks Google In Another Sad Attempt With Scroogled Ad Campaign

Microsoft today launched a "Don’t Get Scroogled" ad campaign with a web video ad and a website asking people to share stories of bad Google search results. Sadly, this attack ad on Google will back fire, early results seem to be bad for Bing and Microsoft as most comments on their Facebook page and YouTube (ironically funny as the video is uploaded on said Scroogler owned YouTube) are favoring Google, looks like Microsoft Scroogled themselves again.

The website reads:

In the beginning, Google preached, “Don’t be evil“—but that changed on May 31, 2012. That’s when Google Shopping announced a new initiative. Simply put, all of their shopping results are now paid ads. In their under-the-radar announcement, Google admits they’ve now built “a purely commercial model” that delivers listings ranked by “bid price.” Google Shopping is nothing more than a list of targeted ads that unsuspecting customers assume are search results.

The attack ad is too much, with comments like “Google > Bing… Attack ads just show how desperate they are for users” and “Bing is hopeless.. negative marketing will get you nowhere.” You can check out the Scroogled ad above and decide for yourself.
