5 Reasons Why Bing Search Is Better Than Google Search

Mobile & Apps: "Ever since Microsoft launched its Bing search engine to compete with Google search, there have been many comparisons of the two. Admittedly, initially Bing was a disgrace when compared to Google search, but slowly as the years passed by; Bing has risen to the challenge and have actually surpassed Google search in terms of accuracy and other things." (Bing, Google, Microsoft, Services, Web)

I don't think its a good reason that "BING IT!" sounds good than "GOOGLE IT!" . It doesn't make it better than Google.

Was just a bit of humor.

None of the other reasons are good either. Google has always gotten me better results.

That might have been true in the past (it was definitely true in the past), but recently, bing search results are pretty much in line in terms of quality with google's.

And google's the one who actually started using bing's extended interface (the side stuff: movie times, baseball/sports events displays, travel stuff,etc.) and incorporated it with their stuff. Google may dominate the search business, but bing's innovations and extra stuff has actually driven google to put all that stuff with their engine.

Bing has actually found a few sites for me that google was not able too on a few occasions. For some reason though, its just easier to type google.com than bing.com, lol. I now have Bing as my homepage.

Maybe Bing is better but i can't see myself use Search engine other than Google.

Bing was recently highlight to have 80% hackage for spam bots and robots filling up the first 100 results of any web inquiry.

You should realize that a lot of those reports are usually biased.
They usually just aim their tests at portions where they think one of the search engines will likely fail and pin it against it. Now, if they further generalized the test, I think we'd have a different story.

I use Bing daily for analytical data gathering. I can easily believe in this report.

Like your word is actually good on the internet?

Searching stuff is so old school. Its all about googling stuff.

Accuracy: Debatable, as it really depends on what you're looking for. I've always found Google's results to be better.

Social integration: Debatable as to being a good feature - I don't need to see my friend's stuff pop up when I'm searching for a website

Xbox 360 Kinect: Only useful if you own a 360. It's generally faster and more accurate to type it out if you're on a PC.

Product Search: You must not know about Google Products..

Bing it: Sounds weird. Google it sounds better.

i just can't see Bing ever becoming a noun the way Google has.
aviator189  +   1217d ago
You never know.
Technology services tend to have a limited run before being replaced over overrun by upcoming competitors.
For example, take a look at sony walkman and apple's ipod history. Or, Android up against Apple.
The cases may not explicitly compare with search, but you can see how things have a limited dominant run.

You mean you can't see it becoming a verb
hazelamy  +   1217d ago
i think you may be right.

grammar isn't one of my strong points. ^_^
mcstorm  +   1217d ago
Aviator you are right. People seem to forget that lycos and yahoo were a bigger search engine before google and google took the market from tham.
I used google until 3 years ago when i started using bing and i have never gone back to google.

But with windows 8 windows phone 7/8 and xbox all using bing as there default search it will start to eat into googles market share.

But something new will come along and have a go at the top sometime in the future.
