Better be Bing; Microsoft’s New Search Engine

Now there’s some definite competition that Google will soon start noticing. With the launch of Bing, the online search space is going to get hotter… at least I think so, for obvious reasons.

For quite some time Google and Yahoo have not delivered the most relevant results and the SERPs show up almost bombed with keyword spam. Things have gotten better though over a past few months but Bing just made it to the first slot in the que of “Evolving Search Engines”.

Microsoft was up to something ever since they were turned away by Yahoo in their bid to acquire the world’s second largest search portal. Now they have bounced back with bang sized Bing!

How is Bing going to make a difference?

1. Results are Transparent – I won’t argue that their results are better, because no one can actually prove it including the other two guys. Bing’s results provide a better access to information – in addition to the description text, it allows you to sneak into the webpage before actually clicking it.

If you use this feature, you are sure to get less BS on the page you land on.

Although it is a good attempt to make search experience better, yet BE CAUTIOUS of over-relying on this tool because it still needs a lot of improvement in order to give you an accurate snap shot of the most relevant text.

Search Engine Optimizers beware and stop using keyword spam – the search engines are evolving into better thinking machines.

2. Image Search just got better

Just try using the filters on the left; they are a handy set of tools which had made searching for desired images easier.

If you hover on an image, there is an option to see similar images. This feature is awesome – I don’t know if they are using some image matching algorithm but it really works.

I tried it and it showed me the image of the same hotel stored on various other websites. Although not 100% precise but the other images shown had a few similarities like water and greenery.

The filters will speed up the work for designers who are continously in need for images that match their concepts.

3. Best Video Search

Bing’s video search is just amazing… The filters are a great help here and Play on Hover is one of the best thingsthat could  happen to Video Search. The relevance, accuracy and precision of the results are also better than Google and Yahoo (sorry guys but it is like that).

Bing's Video Search

All in all it is a good package for any searcher and its easier to search with Bing. On the same note, job of search engine optimizers will become harder because Bing soon will be counted with a bigger market share than Yahoo (unless they really bounce back with a better search solution). So MSN Search (Bing) will now be in every SEO action plan and hey whats going to happen to Live? I’ll write about this soon.

Bing Curry!

    You really make it appear really easy along
    with your presentation however I find this matter to be really
    something that I feel I might by no means understand.
    It kind of feels too complicated and very vast for me.
    I’m taking a look ahead on your subsequent post, I will try to get the hold of it!

    Howdy! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website such as yours require a
    large amount of work? I am completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary
    everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts
    online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Thankyou!

    Example: [Pays 100 if the FTSE touches X between today and date T].
    Binary Options is one of the easiest and least risky trading options available in today’s modern world.
    The credibility and reach of the trading platform are major constituents of the number
    of assets they provide for trading.
