Okay, so a lot of people are very adamant when it comes to siding with Google, but how may people have actually compared the two? I decided to do that research for you guys. I'm going to pick five sets of key words, enter them into both search engines, and compare the results based on relevancy of the first five items. For simplicity's sake, Google will be typed in blue, and Bing in orange. Let's begin!
The first set of keywords is gonna be a simple one: pie.
Keyword set number two: horror novels
Keyword set number three: Skeleton
Keyword set number four: Dunkin Donuts
Keyword set number five: Honda Civic 2016
Now let's take a minute to look at the results. The general consensus is that Bing brings up a lot of irrelevant material, while Google is pretty precise. However, so far the most irrelevant thing from Bing has been the airport location during the pie search. With the skeletons, it actually had more about actually skeletons than Google. Google had a lot of templates and wed page designers. Every other topic has been fairly evenly matched. Considering that Bing and Google are both set up the same way, there really isn't much difference between the two results wise. It's just a matter of the order of the results for the most part. Take from this what you will, but don't assume that old or new is always better or worse.
