Did you try out this blind search tool? It comes with results from Google, Yahoo and Bing. You will see them in three separate columns without search engine’s name on them. You are the man to tell which one is showing the best results and then it will tell which results were collected by which search engine. I checked it many times and keep choosing Yahoo for showing me the best required results.
I talked to the search engine experts many times and they always use to say that people mostly consider Google results best among all and you know why?, because they are from Google. Take any search engine and insert Google logo on top of it, and you will see it will go successful. Therefore, Yahoo results with a Google logo on it will test better than, suppose, Google results having Yahoo or Bing logo on it. People around the world are just used to rate Google as the best search engine.
This search tool removes all the logos and branding, pushing you to neutrally think about which results are best for you. And early results presented much more even statistics than Google’s 70% market share would show:
The score keeping feature has been moved out because users started playing with it, but you’ll still be able to run the test against yourself to check out which search engine you truly like the best. This tool was developed by Michael kordah, who is a Developer Evangelist at Microsoft.
I hope you will try it today and tell me what you think.
