Compare Bing’s search results with Google’s using Bing vs. Google

Ads by Google

googlevsbingHeadYou have heard about Bing right?

I guess you would have to be under a rock not to. Bing really wants to steal the search engine market away from the big G and they realized that the only way to do this would be to build an awesome search engine. And guess what, they did!

Google is already a pretty awesome search engine and all Microsoft really did was get its results on par with Google and add some new features like making decisions for you.

Let’s use a little utility I found called Google-Bing Search. I like to call it Google Vs. Bing (as this is what the “search” button says). It was created by Blackdog SEO. What it does is compare search results from both engines side by side. Let’s take a look at how it works.

We can type in our search terms and hit the button that says Google Versus Bing. It will compare the results side by side in your browser.

Editor’s note: The screenshots below have been separated. You will have to visit the site to get the proper representation of how this app works.

Well, while we are here, I guess we should test out some searches and see what we get. Let’s start with a simple search for MakeUseOf.com + Karl Gechlik and have a look at the results.

The results returned by Google are as follows:

BingVsGoogle2

And here are Bing’s results:

BingVsGoogle3

I am pretty impressed. They both returned valid results and in this case, very different results. And this means that I have another resource for searching now. How about one more search? I decided to search for AskTheAdmin and see what I get:

From Google:

BingVsGoogle4

And From Bing:

BingVsGoogle5

I am really digging this tool and I will be doing a bunch more tests. It will definitely come in handy when comparing these two search engines to have a different set of results every time. Feel free to surf on over do your own comparisons and let us know your findings in the comments!

    What I’m missing in this article is the pretty obvious explanation: due to layout with the left-hand navigation of Bing, the natural results are more towards the centre of the screen than on Google. So the distance between the natural results and the ads is less. So it’s pretty obvious more people will notice the ads.

    Don’t need eyetracking to know that, although eyetracking confirms what every usability expert would have ‘guessed’

    bing is also making decisions for us? really..Its not like if we can’t make our own decisions and we need something else to make decisions for us. “and add some new features like making decisions for you” Google for the win ;]
