So you probably heard about the new search engine from Microsoft, Bing but I wonder how many of you have actually tried it.
Bing (formerly Live Search, Windows Live Search, and MSN Search) is a web search engine (advertised as a “decision engine”), Microsoft’s current incarnation of its search technology. Unveiled by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer on May 28, 2009 at the All Things Digital conference in San Diego, Bing is a replacement for Live Search. It went fully online on June 3, 2009, with a preview version released on June 1, 2009. In its first few weeks Bing was successful in gaining some market share.
Notable changes include the listing of search suggestions in real time as queries are entered, and a list of related searches (called “Explorer pane” on the left side of search results), based on semantic technology from PowerSet which Microsoft purchased in 2008. Bing also includes the ability to Save & Share search histories via Windows Live SkyDrive, Facebook, and email. – Wikipedia
Overall, it doesn’t seem all that different from Google but I think you owe it to yourself to give it a decent try. Now I realize some of you hate Microsoft so much that you can’t even utter it’s name lest it enter your soul and consume you…but you should try it so that you can say, from experience, why you don’t like this specific product. Plus, you may find you like it better and will be all the more happy for it.
For me, it comes down to two things, user friendliness and results. If the results are not what I’m looking for, well then its out. But if the results are good and the user interface is akward, I’ll keep looking. Once I find one with good results and a good interface, I’ll pretty much use it exclusively. Other search engines you may never have heard of but might enjoy using include, SeachMe and LeapFish.
What search engines do you use and why?
If your website can’t be found by search engines, you lose a lot, as there are less people that could possibly visit your site. Obviously, SEO is important for your website, so if you are looking for a reliable company to help you increase web traffic, specialists from White Label Reviews will do their best to achieve this goal.
