A post on Bing search blog says:

At Bing we’re committed to delivering you the best possible results. While teams of researchers, machine learning experts and data miners continually improve our core spelling and ranking components, the reality is that some defects have historically slipped through the cracks.


Bing show some examples of their quality search with comparison with previous search results in this image [bing.com ]

Another example applies to machine learning models that would consider a query like “facebook login.com” to be equivalent to “facebooklogin.net” even though people’s usage patterns indicate that’s not the intended query. It’s very common for people to type a “.com” when they want a “.net” or “.org” domain.

Bing really need to improve their general search results.

Eg I typed in "Australian Job losses" and the top three listings were 3 years old - totally useless.

On Google the top 3 listings were very recent and of course there is the otpion to choose last day or week or month.

I was hoping to use Bing more, but due to that fact I cannot.

Bing in the US works fantastic.. they really need to work on international search from everything i've heard though.

In the US i'm amazed at how quickly MS was able to get fresh content indexed, i'm seeing news on sites indexed within seconds of publishing, that used to be one of google's upper hands at one point.
