Apparently Microsoft has a new search engine called Bing.com, what happened to Live.com? Anyway people are apparently using it, I think I got a referral or two from it, but I get quite a few referrals, mostly from Google in various countries.
I tried it out on a few searches I care about: “Muskie McKay”, “Nurgle”, and “BOB Vancouver” all without quotations. Can’t say I like the results better than Google, especially not for BOB Vancouver. I mean where was my employer?
I’ll keep using Google but I guess I’ll poke around Bing.com for a while longer. The SEO optimization crowd is starting to talk about it, apparently Microsoft is not above buying customers to use Bing for their site search.
