re: Bing Vs. Google Taste Test: Reader Results
I did this twice and got the same results both times - I got Google 4 vs Bing 1... then when the test was over, I wound up on a page displaying my results and admitting "Google won this round but, others picked Bing web search results over Google nearly 2 to 1 in blind comparison tests".
Considering my results were consistently lopsided in Google's favor, I was a little surprised that they would think I was interested in knowing how other users faired. It more or less reminded me of the cola taste-off's in the '80's only instead of being Pepsi, maybe Bing was closer to RC Cola.
Despite my results, I think it's kind of neat that M$ would stick themselves out there like that. They deserve some props for that, even if my results didn't align with their apparent results from other users.
I don't have any particular loyalty to Google as a search engine. I usually use Blekko. Needless to say, I was a little surprised to see that I consistently chose results that were generated by Google instead of a more even spread.
