    Exclamation Reason why Bing chose Blue #0044CC for its links!

    Paul Ray, a user experience manager for Bing said on Tuesday that choosing that specific blue (#0044CC for you color enthusiasts) over some other hues amounted to an additional $80 million in annual revenue, when one factors in the additional clicks on advertisements and increased user engagement.

    "That blue was worth at least $80 million," Ray said, during a presentation at the Mix10 trade show here.



    The previous version of Microsoft's search engine--Live Search--had used a lighter shade of blue. "It lacked a bit of confidence," Ray said.

    This is not a good enough reason to choose BLUE, may be he should have consulted me

    The best combination which would have make bing more attractive would be Red + White.

    There is a long list of companies that has used combination of red and white and are very successful



















    and the list continues...
