Why Bing Sucks. Top 5 Reasons.

For the past several days I’ve been using Microsoft’s new Bing search engine in tandem with Google to compare the results without sacrificing my previous experience.  The main reason why I did this was because I’d like to see viable competition to Google in the search engine space — plus I just like to try new things. After using Bing for several days, I think I’ll probably be going back to Google. I’m still going to give Bing a couple more days but so far the Cons of using Bing outweigh the Pros.

bing-sucks

As I see it, following are the positives and negatives of Bing.

UPDATE: Some basic searches on BING just don’t work
“Was Einstein married?”
“What did Benjamin Franklin invent?”
“What is the top selling album of all time?”

Try them in Bing vs. Google. then you will know How bad is the “Decision engine”.

Pros

  1. There are good addons like travel and local results.
  2. The fact that Bing starts playing video thumbnails when you mouse over them in search results is super slick. This really helps in finding the video content that you are most interested in.
  3. I really love image search on Bing. More specifically, I think the results are generally good and I love that I don’t have to page — that Bing incorporated live.com’s endless scrolling of search results.

Cons

  1. The technical search results like “binomial theorem” will never endup in what you were actually looking for. It might end up in the history, stories ont hat topic which you as end-user will never bother about, that sucks!
  2. (UPDATE: Bing fixes this.) The biggest negative to me so far is the fact that Bing buries news search off the main page. I do many news queries every single day. Frequently I’ll be searching for something via Google and click on Google News. The fact that Bing makes you click on “more” to get to news search frankly flabbergasts me. This seems so basic that I honestly can’t believe someone at MSFT could not figure this one out. Instead of getting “news” search on the main page you get Shopping, MSN and Windows Live. How is it that MSFT has room for those search items but not “news?”
  3. I’m not entirely happy with the search results. A case in point. Earlier today I was trying to find Microsoft’s Bing Blog so that I could leave some of these comments there. So I did a search on Bing for “Bing Blog” Microsoft. What comes up? Lots of less than relevant stuff, but anything but the actual Microsoft Bing Blog. What I was looking for. By contrast, I do a search for “Bing Blog” Microsoft on Google, I actually can find the Bing Blog in the first page search results.
    It also feels to me like Google consistently has Wikipedia entries higher up the search results list than Bing. I might be wrong on that, it’s just the impression that I got after doing several searches. Frequently Wikipedia contains the most relevant info on a search subject and I like seeing them displayed more prominently.
  4. The Bing stuff feels sluggish to me. Several times when I tried to load the Bing Blog (and most frustrating after I typed a lengthy comment) the page wouldn’t load as fast as google does. It seems to be hanging on “transferring data from analytics.r.msn.com” and so the community experience has not been good.
  5. Microsoft only lets you set your settings preferences to allow 50 results per page during searches. (Google by contrast allows you 100 items per search on a page.) Paging sucks and the less that I have to do of it, the better.
  6. Microsoft Maps need a ton of work. I use Google Maps a lot, mostly to set up maps of things that I want to photograph in various cities. MSFT seems to have a similar way to build your own maps using Bing Maps. They call them collections. I started making a “collection” of neon signs in San Francisco that I still need to shoot, but was really put off that my “collections” list is a huge box that blocks about 40% of my map view (you can’t drag this menu any place but directly over your map). With Google your saved locations sit in a column on the left side of the page and doesn’t block your map view.
  7. Result relevance was never as good as Google. First 2-3 results were tolerable, following were very vague.

Given that I use Map Search so much and that Map Search feels so clunky with Microsoft, this is probably one more reason why I’d want to go back to Google.

I’m going to keep trying Bing for the next few days to see if things improve. But most likely I’ll be going back to Google as I doubt that they can improve any of the above negatives very quickly. And In case, I’m satisfied with some results out of Bing, I might use it occasionally e.g. for image search.

Bing vs. Google.

If we Talk about Bing in particular taking over Google, that would be a fair joke from Microsoft. They dont have the skill and innovation to catch upto google. Even if they do, their capacity, processing & speed will never mach that of Google.

Bing in chinese language means “Disease”, truly a Brand Infection! Choice is yours.

    Microsoft know the basics, they have been doing search for quite a bit longer than google. But man did they seem to screw this one up. I used to use Live search and even MSN search all the time as well as google (whichever is the browser default). I used to find the results from either search to be good, pulling up relavent information that I am looking for. But man, bing just plain sucks. I after doing a search on bing a seem to have to try it in google just to get a set of relavent results. I myself will give it a littel bit more time but I think in the end I am going to actually have to chenge the default search in IE.

    I don’t see how they wouldn’t have just leveraged the live search engine when creating bing. But it seems they didn’t because the result seem to suck.

    What a big mistake this has been for Microsoft. I have spent a few hours testing Bing and it totally sucks, most of the results are not relevant. I think Microsoft ought to revert back to Live Search which was not the best but way way better than Bing. I think they ought to follow on Google’s steps and start getting into the local idea. They really messed up this time

    Microsoft is doing their monopoly thing again, trying to oppress its competitors by misleading its users. Just go to bing and in the search box type ‘linux’ but don’t submit it. Bing gives you a dropdown box that looks like this:

    linux
    linux windows
    linux microsoft
    linux vista

    I would never use a search engine that blatantly tries to force its corporate self on its users. That’s brainwashing mind rape.

          Oh I dont know perhaps before launching a crappy product the Microsoft should have tested and done some fixing then. Its run by crawlers feeding it data not users. There is no excuse to come out with a product that needs work. 4 months…huh. With th capital that Microsoft has they should be producing the best product they can then launch when perfect.

          The to run ads like all the other search engines are inferior is an outright lie. I don't think the world is as stupid as Microsoft thinks. They insulted my intelligence with borderline slanderous ads.

          If they needed time and input from the public to make a good search engine then come out with a beta mode, and state this is a test phase. Dont come out the box like your searching the internet from bing would make your life easier.

    Microsoft’s insane obsession with Google has brought us Bing. It’s too bad they couldn’t have focused that same energy on making a decent OS. While Apple and Linux and Ubuntu slowly continue to gain market share, Microsoft gives us Bing.

    We’re witnessing history here… the slow and subtle decline of a once mighty software giant.

    I found bling pretty intresting..

    It is usually ppl like the comfort of what they already have and avoid exploring in the dark.. I am using bling for couple of days and I think it only needs acceptance..

    Just by using a search engine for 2 days we can’t judge anything… Atleast we need to use the search engine for a month or longer..

    Why we have to compare everything with google ?? Yes they set the standards on the web, but we should also let other search engines evolve.. Lets give Bing a fare chance..

    I don’t think that there are only 2 pros that you can easily see. I don’t think only videos and images are kinda cool in that search engine.

    1. You get a history of what you’re searching right in the left menu.

    2. The categorization they use, seems quite useful for me.

    3. There is also a preview of the content before you go click on it.

    Again, this 3 aspects i just listed are really impressive. A few things to take in consideration besides “images and videos”

        And it no longer occurs on Bing. Bing now does this interesting thing with the word “windows” in search results where it can tell the difference between the Microsoft kind and the glass kind.

        If you type in window, most of what you get is glass/GUI windows. Only result #2 is about Microsoft Windows, and it doesn’t even bold the word “Windows” because it recognizes the difference.

        Microsoft is really trying to send a message of “we’re improving.” Bing is responding to all these sort of flaws pointed out on these blogs.
        But they still haven’t won my vote. I’ll take Google over Bing any day.

    http://denzuko.wordpress.com/2008/04/18/the-digital-senseis-guru-predictions-08/

    In all truths, MSFT has died eons ago with the anti-trust wars and is only hanging around because of Vendor licenses, Xbox Licensed Sales, Advertising revenue from PPC and the like.

    Really think of it; when was it that you ever really went to the store and bought a copy of Windows, Office, and the like? Never!!! it came with the over priced PC you bought and want to chuck out the window because it stopped working.

    Bing is just another example of MSFT’s failure to launch something worth wild and leading standards compliant.

    For me, back to Yahoo. I prefer Google, but I like how Yahoo clears your data from their servers quicker.

    Bing, tried it, and don’t like any of it. The thumbnail previews on videos being the best bit, yet I generally am always doing something and hoving my cursor back off the video stops the preview. I prefer loading the full thing anyway.

    As for all the paging, there is a great Firefox addon called AutoPager which will load the next page of results for just about any site under your current page, very good.

    There is also a Greasemonkey script that does this which I used to use.

    So paging really should’nt be a problem – even if you are stuck with Internet explorer you could use I.E Pro to install the script.

    Stupid name, stupid company that for the past 20 years doesn’t listen. 2009 – software arrogance is at an all-time high, along with incessant re-inventing-of-the-wheel by Micro$oft, google and every other software “company”. It’s annoying, there’s not one software company that understands what the word familiarity means and can leave a user interface alone for more than nine months at a stretch. The billions that Bill F. Gates has in his pocket was supposed to be spent on SOFTWARE TESTING. Software is not supposed to be “new”, it’s supposed to BE RELIABLE.

    Try typing a blog address or a name of a blog and see what you get. Bing can’t find my blog, whereas Google has no problem with it. The results Bing produced were where my blog is mentioned on the Internet – but never did it lead you to my blog – not in 10 pages – even when I typed the actual address in the search. It’s MSN search repackaged. Google is better and moving into the social aspect of the Internet – leaps ahead of BING. Bing Bang Bom.

    I tried your three examples of bad bing searches. All three of them had the answer in the first result. Please tell me what I’m doing wrong? I don’t see Bing sucking at all here…

    I’m a service desk analyst for Americas largest travel insurer, having used bing for the past week, I have to say I am not impressed. Google gives much more pertenant results and is still hade and shoulders above bing . Even bings name sucks, I never associate the word “bing” with succes.

    Okay, listen. I stopped reading your incoherent response once I saw number two which reads “The biggest negative to me so far.” In case you didn’t know, number two would not be the biggest. The biggest implies that you are referring to the utmost in weight. If it is truly the biggest it most likely would have been number one… yes? You have failed.

    This was shaping up to be a good review. My initial reaction to bing is similar. I use Yahoo and won’t be changing. However, this comment blew your credibility, “Wikipedia contains the most relevant info…” Wikipedia is cool. Wikipedia is fun. Wikipedia has nice information. But Wikipedia IS NOT relevant when it comes to information. Guess you missed the article in Yahoo News about the faux quotes from the dead.

      There's a misconception that because anyone can edit Wikipedia, that it's full of misinformation and even absurd misquotes. That simply isn't so. Anyone who edits something like “I JUST FARTED” into a Wikipedia article will notice that it gets removed FAST and they get a warning not to do it again. And as far as the misquotes, they try their best to fix inaccuracies. They don't always do that in a timely fashion, but once pointed out, they fix them. While Wikipedia isn't perfect, it certainly is relavent, there are articles about things you won't find in Encarta or a paper encyclopedia, and done in an encyclopediac format too. Your problem is that you are confusing “perfectly accurate” with “relavent to one's search”. When you want to know something, Wikipedia can usually tell you about it. What you're thinking of is Uncyclopedia, a spoof encyclopedia that writes humourously inaccurate articles that often have a touch of fact in them and often quote (and misquote) Oscar Wilde at least once.

    “Wikipedia contains the most relevant info…”
    when Google puts the search result of wikipedia at top, its most relevant. As wikip gives inside-out of the topic, it is able to be known as the “best result”, coz user finds at-least something concrete to proceed further. wen user gets the building blocks, hes free to go deeper with better keywords for search.

    I hate the fact that Bing took over as my default search provider in IE8. I hate IE8 enough as it is without Bing. I had never bothered to change it from Windows Live Search, but as soon as they switched to Bing, and I saw the low grade results, I immediately looked up how to change the default search provider. Nice try, bad move Microsoft.

    Bing has one “Feature” that for me makes it not usable.
    I have been using the side by side add in on ff, and it shows the list of both.
    This feature is the DREADED localization feature. I do a lot of traveling and it always tries to find out where I am to find localized results. I don’t need local results, I am planning trips and I need the NON local results. Try setting preferences, and you CAN set to lots of different countries, but you cannot set this to NO localization.
    Let’s kill localization on the web this is horific for travelers and in the and bad for everybody else!

    For all you people hating on bing you should know more about it before you do. It’s not google you idiots. It is another alternative to organize searches better than google. It filters. if you don’t like that use google! Also in a search engine you don’t type in questions like above. Type in Einstein or better yet use wikipedia. You still have a brain you know, search engines aren’t thinking for you are they? I criticize Microsoft products just as much as the next guy but you have to give them a chance.

    It seems the only sites that BING shows are the ones that pay microsoft to advertise. Do a search for “computer repair, city, state” on bing and google and compare the results.

    The reason why bing is suddenly about 17% of the searches done is because on internet explorer it automaticly puts bing to the up-right-searchbar. And I think if you use firefox and install, for example msn messenger it somewhere says that “Bing will be put as your default search engine” But you can change the default search like this: Look to the right of the search bar, there should be a blue thing (Dont know the english word, sorry) and on the right from that should be an arrow pointing down. Click it and then click “Search other services” (i dont know how it is in english because for me its in finnish) then on the site what it opens just click google and put on the tic that says “Put this as my default search” I hope someone understands this and i really hope this helped somebody. : )

    Sorry to say it, but Bing does suck. Someone said, it does not do your thinking for you, so don’t ask questions. It is suppose to be a decision engine right? So why not ask a question.

    Want a simple test? Just type into both “How tall is Jimmy Stewart”. The most relevant answers come from the Google search.

    Also, Bing does set Microsoft related issues at the top. When you search for Google, it gives you related sites, and list Bing first. Now, that’s marketing.

    Bing is used to sell Microsoft and that’s just plain wrong.

    It did have some features I liked. Like the side bar. Its cool. But, I will never use it again. Sorry Microsoft, it just plain sucks as a search engine and does a poorer job as a decision engine, which is how you are marketing it.

    Followed your lead, tried “who invented the lightbulb” on both.

    Not sure either had an ideal list of relevant results, but Bing really annoyed me by first showing an ad for a lightbulb superstore at the top (distracting, and something not found on Google), and the second thing I saw was a result from Microsoft’s own Encarta. Sorry, but Encarta is so 1996…who TF uses Encarta in 2009?

    Also saw some weird results elsewhere like QOOP photo calendar images giving me high-relevance image search results when I can’t image browsing patterns support this, making me believe QOOP has some deal with Microsoft to get their product images high in the search results. This leads to a search engine without any integrity.

    YOUR COMMENTS ARE VERY THOUGHT OUT AND LOGICAL. BUT I THINK THE THING THAT PISSES ME OFF IS THAT BING DOES EXACTLY WHAT ITS COMMERCIALS MAKE FUN OF. USELESS, IRRELEVANT INFORMATION. HOW OUT OF TOUCH IS MICROSOFT? THEY’VE BECOME IBM.

    Ever since Bing started, I’ve absolutely HATED it. The results have little to no relevance, the links hardly ever work, and lately when I click on a link, the first couple of times, it takes me to a completely random page, nothing to do with the search! (i.e. Search for Elder Scrolls 5, link leads to a work-from-home outfit). I’ve been searching from my browser for years, and want to keep doing so, so I tried to change my Internet Search Provider, only to find out that, mysteriously, the only one that works when I try to use it is Bing! Google, Yahoo, Ask, even crappy AOL search all give me “a file could not be downloaded” error messages. Anybody else think MS is sabotaging the competition? I mean, who else controls the IE file downloading?

    Bing absolutely sucks too much for words to describe. Here’s my big cosmic question. For all the money it takes to work up the big ad campaign, can’t they hire some people who really know how to create a search engine? I have to keep f’ing bing as my default b/c of company policy, so now I have to use bing to get to google to do a search that will find me what I want. Wastes my time.

    You people are EXTREMELY biased against Microsoft! Bing is not that bad! It’s not worse than Google, it’s not better than Google.. it’s exactly the same!
    For instance, one of you said put in “linux” in the search and Microsoft comes up the boxes below for search suggestions saying “linux microsoft, linux windows” etc. That is not true! You are just saying that for shits and giggles. I get everything to come up for linux including command lines, downloads, and the different versions of linux.

    You people are hating on Bing simply because it’s made by Microsoft and you have no idea how a search engine functions or operates behind the scenes. I also strongly agree with the person who wrote this blog post as well. 100+ search results on a page of Google when only the first 5 are really worth clicking on? You must be using Google for practical searches, but when I search for programming error codes and support, I get jack shit for search results.

      Well Edward, If you haven't noticed, this blog is a bit old and M$ has updated it's “decision engine.” Now if you do compare Bing and Google you will eventually see which one really is better.

      I'm love Microsoft products, but Bing just doesn't work right, and it's annoying how M$ is forcing us to use it.

      About the first 5 being the only one's worth clicking on in Google, it's better than going through about 3 pages to get what you want on Bing.

    I'm glad that everyone else thinks that bing sucks. I wanted to like it, I tried to like it, but its results just don't make any sense. WAIT A MINUTE!!! I FIGURED OUT WHAT'S WRONG.

    We are comparing Bing to Google. Google is a “search engine” and Bing is a “decision engine.” When we use Google, we expect, and receive, search results. Bing gives decision results. Just like all of Microsoft's other products, Bing makes the “decision” of what we can do with our computers. Bing is so innovative that it has blown our minds and we aren't smart enough to interpret its results ;)

    I tried Bing for the first time today. I wasn't just unimpressed,I was down right annoyed.

    I hate pop-ups of any kind and bing is full of em. Not your average “buy this” pop-ups but stupid “informational” pop-ups.

    If I wanted to know about the mating habits of eagles,I would search for that. Bing forces it upon you with a photo homepage and clicky “info” boxes that spawn “info” pop-ups.

    I want to hit puppies now. Back to Google for me.

    this must be an anti Microsoft site. First of all the title contains the word sucks so typical immature anti-ms title. Second the comments are clearly by people who didn't even try bing. The worst part was the actual article gives you searches to try. Did they really thing nobody was actualy going to try them. I did all of them and the results for Google and Bing are almost identical … get a life MS haters.

      This is NOT Microsoft Hatred site. This is the same site that Praises Windows 7 like anything http://www.taranfx.com/blog/tag/windows-7
      In fact started several series that support windows 7.

    OMG,

    I so agree with what you are saying!
    Everytime i try to look up information all i get are a few drips of it and even then its not what i am looking for. This Bing doesnt know me…AT ALL!! I want information…not some tad bit of someones thoughts..I want information..ALL OF IT! I dont want a few sites to pop up because those sites ARE NOT what im looking for…so then i spend hours on bing trying to find the EXACT word or words so that it gives me REAL results.
    Bing sucks and thats a shame that people THINK a computer can TELL me what im looking for!!hahahahaha
    It has no idea…its always WRONG!! And one or two sites is just plain SLACK. It makes me wonder if some pretty woman came up with an idea and the guys tongues were sticking out instead of their brains. Come on get a grip this sucks…did you people at microsoft even try this out before you sent this out????
    If you did..you need a new group of thinkers.

      It happened to me too!!! Bing is pretty much a virus from Microsoft They have chosen the perfect name for it: Bing (disease in chinese). Also its not the first time Micro$oft tries to obligate people to use their products, several years ago Micro$oft obligated a company to install Internet Explorer on their computers and got processed.

    If you want an alterative to Bing or Google, the Ask.com search engine works well for me.
    I have looked for something and Bing very often doesn't show the results for what I was looking for, or it comes back “not found” . As for Google Its just too big.

    UPDATE: People who do searches like the follwing ones in Enblish sentences should go use AskJeeves or Ask.com….
    “Was Einstein married?” (Google results = just 'Einstein Wife'
    “What did Benjamin Franklin invent?” ('Ben Franklin Inventions')
    “What is the top selling album of all time?” ('Top selling album all time')

    This is a data search…. 'Was', 'What did', and 'What is the' water down your search on strong data collection sites like Google. Askjeeves is gone now, and part of Ask.com… which my mom thinks is a real search engine because you can type sentences in for a search and it kinda acts human or something… I don't know.

    But you obviously don't know how to search enough to write an article about the pros and cons of 2 search engines, unless you are talking about search engines for my grandma.

      i agree, but when you click on the link named “Ben Franklin Inventions”, you will still likely get a list of what Ben Franklin invented, which would answer the question. The same would also go for “Top selling album all time” and “Einstein Wife”. And this doesn't seem to always work with bing.

    Google is great because it's a WHITE page with Google written on it. It is able to use a complex mathematical system of links and keywords to find what you type in. With Bing, you have some fancy picture homepage that is different every time and results that are the opposite of what you need! Ever heard “keep it simple?” Go Google!

      And that's when the true “SEARCH ENGINE” enter in the game, regular people don't have to learn meta tags or search hacks to get what they want, Live-search or bing is not so good even with basic stuff (at least if you don't get the exact term you want you get the most popular which could be linked to what you want), for me it's like a treat to make people fill relevance search tendencies for marketing databases, and judging by the way microsoft is incorporating (or buying) content for this engine i feel like they're crafting a B2B platform (…and later we'll see microsoft opening their own MAmazone or ME-Bay).

      I can get a higher probability in google with misspelled or unknown therms than bing or even altavista (for power searching i still use metacrawler), these loosely search technique is important because the language is evolving (or crapping, anyway the language is changing) because the marketing campaigns keeps making horrible word jokes popular and the chats are not helping with it neither (u know the kind off wrdz the kidz luv 2 say, lol, etc), so i can get the corrected version from google for the search “Criztoval colo” to get “Cristobal colón”, maybe if microsoft uses their office ortogrpahic corrector, but that would sound malicious like microsoft marketing their own anti-virus or selling licensed partner's products as their own (it's just not ethical).

    I agree with much of this post. Bing has been a running gag literally for awhile now. Its even worse for webmasters, a visit to the Bing community blog shows hundreds of webmasters asking why their site or blog won't get indexed, and the answers to those questions leave a lot to be desired. It almost seems the Bing folks do not have a clue at all. There is no way on earth Bing will have a prayer of truly competing with Google the way it is right now.

    Bing to me is the garbage Windows Live Search with a new interface that really isn't all that pretty at all. I think a better decision could be made with Google or even Yahoo for that matter. Atleast Yahoo searches are actually relevant most of the time. Yahoo isn't as good as Google, however Yahoo is probably Google's closest real competitor.

    Couldn't agree with this article more. I decided to try Bing for a month when it came out and I could only make it through two weeks before changing my default search engine back to Google. I found that the screen didn't even scroll smoothly when I was searching. I assume it had something to do with the endless search results thing, but it made it hard to track where I was on the page. And that was in Microsoft's own browser.

    They should have never got rid of Ms. Dewey. The search results were horrible, but at least she was fun to watch. Bing Blows.

    Bing just does not compare to Google!!!
    Whenever I type what i'm looking for into google I get it, with Bing the relevant topic doesn't even come up most of the time!!!
    Bing does suck and I won't use it. Just get rid of it as no one I know uses it.

    I hate bing's search also compared to google.
    when searching with bing, a lot of unrelated junk I don't care for pops up. for example I searched for something about the superbowl on google and brought up the one we just had. I searched on bing and something about the 2004 superbowl came up as the first 5 results. whaat?

    Bing is exactly what it is in chinese!! A disease!!
    It contaminated my Firefox Browser obligating me to use it!!
    But I finaly found the cure for Bing. Now my Firefox is healthy again.
    Bing is nothing more than a virus from microshit.
    If anyone have that Bing bar disease on firefox please don't blame that on Firefox, its not firefox that is obligating people to use bing, Its Micro$oft that sent that virus.

    Bing is crap! I'm not a big one for marketing and names and all that stuff so I couldn't really care about the name “Bing” In fact, it sounds ok to me… But I don't have a gripe with the glitzy naming or promotion, what I care about is what's under the bonnet… And quite frankly, it is garbage!

    Every website I create get's instantly indexed in both Google and Yahoo, yet never gets indexed in Bing until I shout and scream in their community forums and Brett Yount manually adds it!

    How do they expect to be successful with this type of activity… And all the forum experts say “focus on building quality backlinks” – bullshit! I'm not asking to be number one…I'm asking to be indexed… a process that Yahoo and Google have no problem doing…I will focus on backlinks in my efforts to be at the top of the SERPs but that is secondary to just being listed!

    Think about it, a small business owner who is focussing energy on a website (growing numbers of businesses focussing efforts online)…
    I have a website and Bing doesn't index it…
    1. I'm never going to use Bing because it won't list my site
    2. I'm never going to tell anyone else to use Bing because they wont find me there

    They're shooting themselves in the foot by making getting listed so difficult!

    There is clearly a major issue with their index and it either can't keep up or is very buggy… What's even worse is I have seen in my logs that the MSN Bot has visited my site 5-6 times… And I still can't get listed… So in other words, it knows I exist, it has crawled my site, yet it still won't list me…

    Boo Bing!

    I have been using Bing for the last 4 months and I've about had it, I'm going back to Google. Bing is just inferior in so many ways.

    First and foremost, for relevancy, there's no comparison. I would type search words into Bing and not find my answer. Pop over to Google, paste in same searchwords and find my answer in the first three listings. And most of the time it was, as you noted, nothing more difficult than hitting wikipedia first.

    Bing's map functionality is a joke. After the first few attempts I didn't even bother trying anymore. Google maps is simply a billion percent better.

    With Bing, if you type in a web search and then realize you meant an image search, you have to retype the search topic again. Wow, how fucking brain dead is that?

    So while I'm not happy with Google's stranglehold on the internet, until MS gets its act together I'm back to Google.

    I love how your top 5 reasons Bing sucks is actually 7 reasons. Like it's hard to just pick five.

    I did a bing search of why does bing suck, and the #6 answer was “why does it suck being gay?” The answer above that was about the game Halo 3.

    Seriously Microsuck, step up your game or quit while you're ahead.

    Does anybody know in some countries like India , china, the bing results are strictly filtered, like no porn , or offensive material.
    I typed Heidi Klum Lingerie, & it says the following:-

    “The search 'heidi klum lingerie' may return explicit adult content and has been filtered by your Bing SafeSearch settings. Your country or region requires a strict Bing SafeSearch setting, which filters out results that might return adult content. To learn more about SafeSearch requirements in your country or region see this help topic.

    Bing still is horrid next to Google. They have had many months to fix BIG problems, but sit on their hands expecting people to jump from Google to Bing.

    Here is a example.
    I am a real bad speller. The spell checker in Google Search is really, really, good and saves me hours. I typed in the same misspelled search terms many times in Bing and got no matches!

    Bing currently is worthless to me.

    Here is a good example of a hard spell check match. Type this in Bing and Google and see my point…

    “feeding matija poppies”

    The word should be spelled “Matilija”

    Just saw something about “Eva Longoria Parker on Nicollette Sheridan Suit” listed on Bing A-list searches, April 8, 2010. When I Binged it but all the articles that came up were 2 years old. Kind of funny to me that I had to “Google” the topic to get the actual information on the subject. This seems to happen a lot with bing searches listed on the MSN homepage…

    Yeah…. reason #8 bing sucks….. It's made by Microsoft. Microsoft does a great job adding bells and whistles to things, but they never seem to be able to the basics to work right. Just makes me wonder who's code they stole… ur… “acquired” and how many hours they spent ensuring it wouldn't work right. :D.

    But in all seriousness, The items listed above are HUGE items. You do not get the search results with bing you get with google or even yahoo. With either yahoo or google, The first 2 are typically what I was looking for. Definately in the first 10, or I was searching for something very obscure or overly simplified (like the word “the”). I don't have to search around in the search results for it. Bing… on the other hand…. Yeah, not even close. bing has some nice features, but just cannot do the basics right. Hopefully with time, Microsoft will get it straightened out. Either that or when they somehow magically they conquer all the other search engines and become “top dog”. … we will be stuck with possibly the worst search engine that has ever existed as the most popular. IMO

    I hate Bing. Bill gates should stick to Powerpoint, Word, Excel, Etc. Bill Gates thinks he can rule over every aspect of the internet. But he can’t do search engines. And it pains me to see that Bing’s ads are all over the internet on every site I go to. They try to make people think that Bing is better than Google, when really it’s not. “Googling”, is even a term for looking something up on the internet. Other people may not care, but I am very computer savvy. I do love using Word and Powerpoint, but not Bing. Bing IS a disease. People who aren’t affected by it don’t really care. But there are people who care about what search engine they use. Bing has a few things like Google’s, but Google has many more. People just think Bing’s are better because they make it LOOK better, not necessarily MAKE it better. I think someone needs to walk up to Bill Gates and tell him what we think. I would, but I’m only 12. I don’t think Bill Gates is gonna talk to some 12 year old. (End Rant/Wall of Text)

    I hate this search engine. It wouldn't bother me at all, and I would never even think about this useless search engine, if Microsoft didn't shove it down my throat, shove it down all of America's throat! It has attached itself to so many installations of software (for being the default search engine, installation of its toolbar, ect). I thought I did a great job of always un-checking it while installing various things. HOWEVER, somehow despite all that, any time I type a URL wrong Bing comes up! (It really is like a virus!!) And it REALLY pisses me off to keep giving undeserved traffic to a low quality, half-assed search engine against my will daily- knowing every time I do it makes more [undeserved] money off of it.

    I have a friend in Iran who says Bing is blocked in his country, I told him he was a lucky bastard.

Today I searched for 'should i let photoshop cs4 access the internet' – came up with basically nothing so I tried putting quotes around 'photoshop cs4 access the internet', which in google would give a good search result. No, I got “Should I let my boyfriend finger me?” “Should I let my baby cry?” Should I do this, should I do that…. ridiculous. That is the LAST time I even try Bing, I'm taking it off my stupid default menu bar.

    Bing is going to give the results that these loser, eggheads in Redmond want you to see. MS has a monopoly on OS's and are going to continue on their arrogant path. “We thought of it – people will have to like it – WE'RE F&^%ING MICROSOFT – WE KNOW BETTER THAN YOU. Imagine a computing world where Microsoft was forced, hopefully at gunpoint, to liquidate and distribute it's insane wealth and coding to maybe 5 or so companies with a better idea.

    I'm also sick of Bing too. No matter what I try to search for. I put my safe Search on and start searching for some cool images to put on my Zune player. I search for cartoons from the 80s, Arcade games, 80s tv show and 80s movies. And in most of the images there are pictures of half naked ladies, which I do NOT want. I want pictures on WHAT I'm looking for. Just wish there was another search engine that would be a whole lot better than Bing. BING CAN DIE AND GO TO HELL!!!!

    BING RELIES HEAVILY ON PAGE TITLES!
    Search for “Bing Help” on Bing, and then Search for “Bing Help” on Google

    7 of the 10 results on the Bing side are not microsoft. 1 is related to arthritis “Bing Cherries: May Help Gout” and another is “Club Bing is a new way to play fun online casual games”

    Now lets look at Googles results. All the results are actually related to the Bing search engine, and 5 are hosted in some way by microsoft.

    Therefore Google is delivering, for this search query, more accurate results than Bing about Bing.

    The algos seem to be too simplistic – Bing Cherries may help Gout. This means Bing has simply looked for the keywords in the page title and nothing more – and the words arent even close together.

    Bing needs to work on its algos a bit more. Or people will just spam their titles with as many kkeywords as possible, meaning their sites will turn up for loads of searches. Google seems to have this sorted.

    I totally agree. I do not think bing has relevant searches. I find Yahoo to give better results, that is not saying much. I heard that Yahoo was going to use Bings algorithm. I feel thats a bad move. It irritates me that Bings advertisements take a cheap shot a google results stating you actually find what you are looking for in Bing. That is rarely true. More crap in Bing by far. How can you claim to have superior results in SERP's when your SERP's wont even return Bing Blog as a result.

    Bing video is just about the worst thing out there if you want to watch …well, anything.

    Case in point, today I saw a video for the iphone4 antenna thing in MSN. Since my work computer doesn't have speakers, I bookmarked it to watch at my hotel. My hotel, like most, doesn't have the greatest bandwidth. I had to watch the video in stages because, unlike youtube, you can't see how much of the video it's downloaded (normally I wait for it to DL the entire thing). Furthermore, one of the related videos didn't even play. To make matters worse, while I was still trying to buffer one of the videos (that actually played), Bing decided that I'd already watched that video, and automatically moved on to the next one. I ended up doing the smart thing and just finding the videos on youtube.

    Bing SUCKS BIGTIME! I will not use it but I can not get away from it! The thing I hate most about Bing is when I type the address in at http://, BING jumps in and takes over and then I find myself at the useless BING page! I can't even use my History to go to sites that I have typed in before! It is TOTALLY USELESS……..just like the Vista that I keep trying to remove from my laptop…….a steaming piece of poop!

    Bing sucks because the pages are filled with more ads than content. Iknow i know they need to sell to generate revenue etc. Buy, it's overkill! and since I and people like me won't go to bing anymore the fee for their ads should come down because of few readers. Therefore, it would behove Bing to ease up on the adds and maybe their readership will come back to them.

    Why don't the rich and famous butt sucks from Hollywood pine for those suffering in AMERICA, instead of those countries that hate AMERICA?

    I had to wipe my computer and the new software loaded bing in the toolbar instead of google, and I cannot stand it. Bing is total crap and NEVER has the correct search responses unless it is something VERY BASIC, and eve then sometimes. Also, their maps absolutely stink and if you type an address in, you still have to click map afterwards, when google autopmatically provides a map in the initial search!

    Bing can NOT find my URL: http://www.largemachining.com. Bing tries to put a space between words which counters the objective of this URL.

    ALSO. http://www.gedico.com is hard to find with Bing.

    Maybe, Bing fails to search URL names which are important to the owners who own the registered names.

    Ok, so I type “can’t load bing news” in the bing search engine.
    What’s the top result? You’d think it would at least be “bing” related, right?
    WRONG! First is something alexa.com about bing, then a couple from the “bing community”
    Then we have “carmellabing”–NSFW!!

    Bing sucks because Bing is just another MS piece of crap purposely designed to control your results. The purpose has nothing to do with relevance. It has everything to do with directing you to sites that produce revenue for MS. It's that simple. I use Firefox. Bing doesn't take over my searches, and never will.

    I dont like bing either but honestly thats false advertising. They are adverting bing in china as “always answered” so do some reading before you do a hate post. i like why you dont like bing tho. Google has succeded with everything they have done and the only things microsoft has done good at is video games and computers. they have sucked HORRIBLY in the phone department and havent come out with anything but mindless video games and OS's that are very confusing if you dont know how to use it. I LOVE microsoft i really do but google takes the cake on this one.

    Bing really is bad. Many people use it for images and videos, but I think that those features are not good enough. In order for the video features to work, you have to have all these video players, and downloads which makes the majority of the experience actually just from the downloads, and think of 80% of people. They won't know to download anything! Don't forget that Google owns YouTube, the largest video site on the web, so around 60% of the Bing video content will be making Google more money, and we all know YouTube is much better and combined with Google Video, it makes Google King for Videos. With images, Bing has way to much flash and fancy codes. Google's interface for images is much similar and not an instant headache like Bing's. Bing Images even got worse! It used to be when you moused over an image it would pop out, but now it doesn't. With Google it does, and the feature is beneficial for details, and also, there is a lot of wasted space on Bin's, and the pictures show to small. And Google owns Picaso. Bing in general is a flash eating, code overusing time consuming hassle. Google is a simple, amazing site which should be the one called a decision engine. Don't forget Microsoft owns Internet Explorer which SUCKS! Google Chrome rocks. Despite the fact that Bing is made to work with Internet Explorer (which in reality is to suck on anything else), it's still really slow on it. On Google Chrome it's actually faster! [laughs] Internet Explorer is a space eating sloth, but Chrome is a lean, data sipping Beast on the web. I recommend you get it. And the only way to get Internet Explorer 9 is to get Windows 7, which means that it's not going to be a big change to the browser, but instead just the operating system, meaning you have to pay $40 just to get a fast(ER) Internet Explorer. And don't forget Google's large list of other sites and features Microsoft can't match up to, like Blogger, Google voice (which is free, and gives you a free number of your choice). Gmail (heaven in form of email), TRANSLATE, Sites, Calender, SCHOLAR, Finance, ADSENSE, which gives you money for putting on you site and getting clicks, READER (an amazing RSS reader), DESKTOP (DOWNLOAD THIS, YOU WON'T REGRET IT), BOOKS, EARTH, Talk, SketchUp, Google Health, Patent Search, Google Toolbar (You know, this is on Internet explorer and Firefox, so half of those browser's features are actually by Google.) and much, MUCH more. And don't forget Pack (http://pack.google.com/?hl=en) And don't get me started on Google for mobile!

    First, this Disqus Comment section loads slower than Bing. (waitt for load, finally, reload page… wait… wait… wait… finally loaded)
    Secondly, I love the 10 tracking cookies this website hits you with when I arrive… luckily I have Ghostery to block em all.
    And last, ixquick.com is the search engine I use. Supposedly they do no IP tracking and the results are pretty decent. Personally I refuse to to use the Google Tracking Company after the stunts they have pulled in the last 2 years and the knowledge I have learned about their company tactics.

    May be you want to write another blog now…since a lot has been imporved especially all those cons you were saying. You are right, at the time of writing this blog, it was true. but now i dont see the difference between the two. And if any google has been following microsoft in adding the picture on the main page, visual search and so on…

    so if you are free, try finding the cons now…

    Bing is seriously horrid. Results are built to make you search even more to increase their traffic ratings. It's odd how they made the Bing experience feel exactly like their commercials, which are contrarily trying to advertise against that type of insanity. Terrible, terrible search engine.

    Nice review! Any chance you cut and pasted that last paragraph? It contains two spelling and two grammatical errors while the rest of the article is an easy read.

    I’ll be sticking with Google. Bing’s searches leave me consistently irritated. I can find what I’m looking for in the first few hits on Google nearly every time.

    yeah bing sucks for me because you get the advertisers only for like 10 pages and then maybe you can get to some more relevant search results. It’s like watching commercials for 20 minutes out of a half hour tv show and then not getting 10 minutes of the show that was edited out to make room for the commercials.

    Bing is like a virus. You don’t use it as much as it takes over your online experience – and ruins it. The @#$@#$ mouse-overs always pop-up the most useless and annoying trash. I feel like I’m fighting the thing. I noticed that the MSNBC fusion sites had bing links all over the place at first but have backed off. If it chased people away the way it did with me, I’m sure they took a major hit. I actually went to the trouble of blocking some bing-heavy sites in my hosts file because I drifted into them too often from other sites. Hate hate hate bing.

    “Was Einstein married?”
    “What did Benjamin Franklin invent?”
    “What is the top selling album of all time?”

    Intelligent folk usually do not perform searches framed as questions with useless clutter words.

    “Einstein married”
    “Benjamin Franklin invention”
    “Top selling album all time”

    Leave out the pointless words. Hopefully that helps in the future ;)

    Bing is total Bullshit!! I just purchased an ASUS Eee PC Seashell series. It is the first time I am using the computer and it is forcing me to use bing as my search engine. When I hit “No, Thanks” it leads to a bar that asks if I want to download bing. When I say no, it brings me back to ask me if I want bing installed. I hate bing and this is really unbelievable! I hope the Federal Trade Commission imposes a huge fine on bing – the worst search engine ever!

    UPDATE: Some basic searches on BING work just fine!
    “Was Einstein married?”
    “What did Benjamin Franklin invent?”
    “What is the top selling album of all time?”

    All come up on the first page and the Einstein query comes up as the FIRST entry!

    No one seems to mention the point rewards. I have accumulated over 1500 points
    and received several “rewards” already. This is from doing nothing more than I would have done using Gargle…oops, Google. While this is not my main reason for using Bing, it is a pleasant perk. I stopped using Google several months ago and do NOT miss it a bit!

    And Bing’s indexing service is too slow. I started a new blog 2 months ago, Google found it within a week and indexed almost all the pages. For Bing I am yet waiting to get it indexed and that sucks even more as Yahoo now depends on Bing for search results so the Blog is not in the Yahoo search either.

    Internet would have been a crap without Google and if we were left on mercy of Microsoft.

    Very nice post. I think all of us did this sort of comparison. But in the end it all comes to personal taste. As all three big search engines still bring us the same info in a bit different order.

    Bing is better now, but too little too late. Google was and is eons ahead of them. Not that i’m a google “lover”, they have their suckiness in their own ways. But still, bing was rolled out and that damn ginormous candy-ass toolbar was everywhere, made more work for me removing that garbage. So bing can kiss my fat vinegary balls from here on.
