Mobile Search Faceoff: Bing Vs. Google Vs. Yahoo
Posted 27 March 2012 - 09:13 AM
In A 'Normal' Computer, Do The Following:
A - Choose Any Site,
B - Choose Any Page From ( A ),
C - Select Any Text From ( B ),
D - Enclose ( C ) In Double Quotes,
E - If You Are Using FF Or CHROME Install The SEARCHGBY Extension,
F - Search ( D ) In All Search Engines You Can Find,
More Often Than Not, BING And YAHOO Do Not Find ( C ), Whereas GOOGLE Does It Better Than The Other 2 Combined.
Does GOOGLE Have More Internet 'Detectiveness' ?

There is good information in the article. Therefore, calling the article a "total waste of time" would be debatable at best and downright wrong at worst.

Are you sure?! I've been on the web since 1997 (when South Africa actually first got the web).
Here is what I've noticed over the years: Microsoft has become less corporate and more "free"/better licensed towards the end user, especially with their new 5 device software licenses seeing the light of day since 2012-2013. But that's OT. Google as great as they might be in Capital and sheer size... lacks ACCURACY!!! yes go do a search now,Google gets more hits,but usually with little to no relation to what i searched except on rare occasion... whereas both Bing/Yahoo gets substantially less hits than Google, but far more accurate... Mobile searches i prefer Bing searches, cause of the streamlined user features and just darn good flow structure. on the desktop however I prefer Yahoo! as almost all search related settings is accessible from the search page within a click in general, no sneaking around to find specific settings.
Google's downfall? OVER-PERSONALIZATION!!! yes other companies , especially Yahoo also features Personalization,but its much less than that of Google.
Here is the Crux.... "When you search,do you see what you want to see or what the greater Companies affiliated to Google wants you to see?
All forms of Personalization should be optional...Its like the [censored] regime on the intellectual flow of information...with a capital G spearheading the campaign.

If You Are 'Allowed' To Comply With These 2 Conditions:
1 - You Give Credit Where Is Due,
2 - You Got The Time,
Then Do This Experiment:
A - Choose Any Forum In The Internet,
B - Post A Comment In That Forum,
C - 2 Or 3 Days Later, Make The Exact Same Search For ( B ) Using All The Majors ( Do Not Forget To Enclose Your Search In 'Double Quotes' ),
D - If You Were Not Convinced Go To ( A ) Again And Again And Again.
When You Get Your Results Come Here Again And Tell Me What Your Conclusion Was.
( And Do Not Tell Me This Is Not A Relevant Search, Because, Sure As Hell, I Will Not Buy It ).
