Bing it On Round Two, Who’s Really top dog of the Search Companies.

Fernando Blanco from Electric Avenue Said - "In a study that was recently conducted by SurveyMonkey, researchers studied what assumptions users were making when it comes to search engine optimization. Each of the respondents were provided with two pages, each with the search results of a particular topic. One of the pages was labeled as “Bing” and the other was marked “Google”. They were then asked to point out which search results they preferred. The majority of users chose Google. This was even the case when the headers were switched on the pages, making the “Bing” results actually the “Google” page and vice versa." (Google, Web)

Google generally works much better than Bing. Simple as that.

I found the Bing Toolbar and Bing Ad-on to be cumbersome and well... kinda crappy.

That used to be the case, now there really isn't much difference search result wise anymore. The main difference is the presentation, google has a cleaner interface but bing has a nice wallpaper and popular searches/news on the front page.

I honestly don't see any differences between the two in terms of search results/findings.
Bing has come a long way from live search and I'm glad that the people who are working on Bing have put so much effort into the search engine.

Though, I find myself using Bing more and more everyday. It's integrated nicely into ms's services and it really does give me what I want. And those awesome daily homepage pics and search credits are just a really nice bonus.

search "Barcelona" on both Google and Bing.

Bing will just show you the results where as Google will show you the next match that's coming up (of Barcelona) and the recent results of the previous matches.

Search "Movies <your city name>", you'll get the list of movies and theatres they are running in on Google. Bing, not so much.

These are the two quick results i'm happy about which i use most of the time.

Ok. I did that.
After typing in barcelona in both search engines, I don't see the upcoming matches on either search engine. Just the results.

After typing in movies and my city name, I see a list of playing movies and nearby theaters on both search engines.
The difference is that bing shows me the times at which the movies will be playing and google does not.

The problem with google is that they are stagnant. Bing is making great strides as google is working on other stuff. I really enjoy bing and haven't looked back. Neither have all my customers.

google hasnt really touched its search engine in years.
same thing different year.

bing is definitely shitting on them

but google will always be number1 because of brainwashing

like how people say kleenex instead of tissue
or vasoline instead of petroleum jelly
ipod instead of mp3 player

brand name instead of actual product.
