Microsoft To Launch Decision Engine 'Bing' June 3

 4:56 pm on May 28, 2009 (gmt 0)

Microsoft To Launch Bing [discoverbing.com]
So, why a new search engine? Why the new name? Why now?
We took a new approach to go beyond search to build what we call a decision engine. With a powerful set of intuitive tools on top of a world class search service, Bing will help you make smarter, faster decisions. We included features that deliver the best results, presented in a more organized way to simplify key tasks and help you make important decisions faster.

And features like cashback, where we actually give you money back on great products, and Price Predictor, which actually tells you when to buy an airline ticket in order to help get you the best price help you make smarter decisions, and put money back in your pocket.


I'm sure we'll all 'bing' it next week.

BTW Ciao.fr accessed directly from France now has top nav ..to windows .live msn, ..bing.com etc all over it ..

ciao ( everywhere ) is still ostensibly owned by German company ciao.gmbh ..but one wonders if MSN has bought in or is merely partnering ..

anyone seeing what shopping comparator is being used elsewhere world wide ? are they linked ..or have they all become MSN parteners / properties

ciao is fully owned by microsoft, they bought it for something >480 Million!


Now regarding BING: it is really fast. Now they have something that actually responds to queries!

I have not tested the results really. Still looks like a normal search engine to me and did not help to make any decisions today. Yet, if they pour $$$ into marketing and hardwire it into W7, it will be an alternative traffic source !

I think: so far no hard errors to find in the approach... short name, real fast loading, entertaining approach... lets wait and see!

Google's breathing a big sign of releif right now. Interesting UI, poor search results.

poor search results

Well I tried a couple of search phrases and both my sites came out on top.

When I clicked the links I went straight to the relevant pages.

With that limited test I see no difference to Google.

BillyS, are you on the US search results (picked US location)? I get excellent results there. Comparing it side by side with Google and it's almost exact.

Elsewhere on WebmasterWorld some are saying it is Google!

I can't see how myself...

To me so far it looks like Google.
