Bing Search Results Tainted
Say it ain’t so Microsoft!
I think if you want to stick it to your competition you should probably try to be subtle about it, so as not to draw the ire of your customers. Apparently Microsoft hasn’t learned that lesson, as evidenced by Bing search results for the search “why is windows so expensive“. I mean come on, there is nothing subtle about the first result, “Why are Mac’s So Expensive“, now is there. I especially like the deflection of the third result, which is “Why are vinyl windows so expensive“! Way to answer a question with another question Microsoft, lol.
If you were to type the same search into Google, you would receive slightly more relevant and less biased results back. Such as “Why Windows Vista and Office 2007 are so Expensive“, or “Is Windows getting more expensive“.
Now of course, Google would have no reason to hide results that are anti Microsoft now would they. A better test may be to type in “Why does Google Suck?” you might say. Well oddly enough the first result back from google for that search is…………..”Why does Google Suck” from www.whydoesgooglesuck.com! I guess google isn’t filtering out the results they don’t want you to see the way Microsoft is.
It would appear that Bing (and Microsoft for that matter) still has a ways to go.
