10 Sites to Compare Google vs Bing Results Side By Side

TNail3   10 Sites to Compare Google vs Bing Results Side By SideThankfully, the web doesn’t make us take sides. We can have the best of every world. With the launch of Bing, we had another search engine to crawl the web with. A few months and millions of searches down the line, Bing has also built up its legion of users (and fans). It’s Google vs Bing now. The former is still The search engine while the latter calls itself a decision engine.

But I would just like to sit on the ropes with all this because I am just an average user”¬¶more interested in getting the results I seek without getting into the algorithm of it all.

Although as an average user, I can say that both search engines deliver different kinds of results. You must have seen it with your search queries. Different query terms gave me different degrees of relevancy in both search engines.

For instance, using the query “makeuseof.com”¬Ě gave me more pointed results in Google. You can do one of your own and find out.

But there have been results which have come out as more useful for me in Bing as well. It has given me a lot of pleasant vibes with its performance. That just goes to show that we are left to our own choice as far as these two search engines go. I can say that for a lot of us, our sixth sense in the Google vs Bing decision is not exactly working.

Even as the bouts go on, a lot of websites are cropping up around the Google vs Bing preoccupation. They are simple single-function website letting us compare Google and Bing results side by side.

This isn’t a Top to Bottom list but merely a listing of all the addresses that will allow you to do a comparison search of Google vs Bing.

  10. FuriaFuria   10 Sites to Compare Google vs Bing Results Side By Side
    If a webpage can be called as artless, then this is it. Just a search query box and nothing else. Type in your query and the page splits in two to display results from Google and Bing.

In this list we have seen tools that swing from the Web 2.0 look to those that resemble a weekend project done in a jiffy. Does it look like too many cooks for a single broth? But then having options never harmed anybody.

In the end it’s about getting results that are on the button. Using two popular search engines does help to cancel out the inaccuracies of both. Somebody did mention that two heads are better than one.

Which is your preferred search engine among Google and Bing? When it comes to search, do you have the patience to sift through the results from multiple search engines or would you rather use just one?

Somewhere along the line while working chest deep in google muck trying to optimize for google search there was a change. It has gotten the feel of a riff-raff carnival show where evrything is fake and everyone knows it. I’m just so used to it that it feels like home. Apparently the general public isn’t all hat sophisticated yet because I’m still making money from adsense and affilate advertising, but when I do a search for information myself I feel as if I need a legitimacy engine to go through the google results. Maybe it’s time to try Bing.

Co-creator of Bingle.nu here. I wanted to point out the multiple category feature of Bingle that these other mash-ups don’t have. Bingle allows you to compare results for web, images, videos, maps, shopping, and news categories of Bing and Google. All the other engines only allow you to search web results, and in some cases photos.

On top of that, we focus on giving more area to the search results and we do not have a huge top bar taking up space.

If you want to see a comparison in words, there’s a WikiVS article http://www.wikivs.com/wiki/Bing_vs_Google that I started.

On a personal note, I like Bing as my fun search engine and Google as my work search engine.

Hey, what about BlindSearch? This website compares search results for the top three search engines – Google, Bing and Yahoo. There is one trick though, you need to sort of ‘guess’ which one result is of which search engine before you see all three search engine results. Fun!
