The results suggest that Yahoo and Bing (both are powered by the Bing search engine) are more effective at fetching the right results for users, which is the task of a search engine.


Google is trying to be everything but a search engine of late, too much so?

"results suggest" is a real stretch.

the difference in the reported numbers is very large - i'd like to know more about how they count a "search" and a "website visit"...

we've seen YaBing do things like this:

Comparing the two, in my own experience Bing provides me the better search experience.

To each their own.

I'm well into multi-years with Bing these days. The times I've had to turn to G for anything have diminished greatly...

I like Yahoo and Bing for search results because they are direct to the point unlike Google which offers lot and tons of advertisements. However, if I am looking for pictures and videos, I prefer using Google.

Bing looks far better compared to Google this year, though they can still improve a lot. Will 2011 be the the start of the end of Google era?

Are we looking for an "end" of Google or a better "balance" in Google (which is now facing some credible competition)?
