Bing and Google

I read an article by Simon Mackie, the article is 10 Simple Google Search Tricks. It is a must read. It makes life much easier for guys looking for stuff on-line.

I took 9 out of the 10 tricks explained by Simon and tried it on Bing search engine. I just wanted to see how similarly or differently does Google search engine and Bing search engine handles the search queries. Staying honest to the original post I will only use the topics of the original post. To read more about the topics you would have to visit the original post.

Let’s start the fight!!!!!!!!!

1. Use the “site:” operator to limit searches to a particular site.

2. Use Google as a spelling aid.

6. Use the OR operator.

7. Exclude specific terms with the – operator.

8. Search for specific document types.

9. Search within numerical ranges using the .. operator.

For Bing to beat Google, Bing has to provide all the features Google supports so that it is easier for people to migrate to Bing. And from the looks of it, Bing has to do some catching up.

  1. I’ve been using bing as my default search engine for last 2 months. It is good. I have to go to google only two time. In time to come I’m sure Bing is going to get better…

    • I didn’t find Bing very convincing, it might be because of the fact that I am used to Google. There are still few things which Bing should support like checking time etc. And it is still in beta state for India
