Top 4 reason why Bing is better than Google

Filed under: Blogroll — Tags: , , , , , , , — Hugsie @ 1:40 pm
  1. Video searches on Google only searches Youtube. Which is stupid since if you want to search for Youtube videos, you’d simply use Youtube.com directly. Bing searches all sites for videos (including porn sites) and allows you to thumb though the videos before going to the site that hosts the videos, which helps avoid malware.
  2. Image searches will not display any pornographic images regardless of your “safe search” settings. If you search for “boobs” on Google, you’ll get images of clothed busty women, often as “demotivational” joke/meme images. On Bing you’ll get what you’re looking for.
  3. Google allows 3rd parties to pay Google to have their search results (i.e. Ads) appear at the top of search results, Bing shows more relevant search results, but otherwise the same searches.
  4. Bing is apart of Microsoft Live, you can earn points by doing searches with Bing, and redeem them for just about anything. I my self redeem for XBox Live $5 gift codes, and buy more games when on sale for virtually free. Wish I could do that on Steam.

That said, Google does have a very good reverse image search where you give it an image file and it will tell you more about that image, who is in the image, where you can find high resolution versions of the images, alternate copies, etc. Wolfram Alpha has their own take on this as well called, Image identification Project.

  1. Google ultimately shows more relevant results, and has better mobile integration. Also it doesn’t try to install itself on my browser all the time. Srsly Bing bar, go away.

    • I’ve never got nagged to install a Bing search ba. Pointless since the address bar can be set to any search engine you like. Those things are a thing of the past. Also it Google does not show more relevant results unless you can get rid of the paid results not to mention they limit searches to a handful of site on the web, rather than the web at large. Google is far too corrupt now since it’s the #1 search destination, so every nanny-state institution to every social marketing company is paying billions into google to alter your search resultes for you. Since after all you have to be protected from yourself.

  2. Google doesn’t have the most honest policies, I’ll warrant. But this is sounding more like a “jet fuel can’t melt steel beams” kind of thing.
