Which Searchengine do you believe is best? Really?

Mon 8 June 2009 11:01, Bas van den Beld

With the introduction of Bing the discussion about which search engine provides the best results has again been uplifted. Knowing that if you just put a Google logo on it should be sufficient for people to choose a particular search result it is nice to take a different angle.

And that is what a Microsoft employee did. Michael Kordahi created Blindsearch. A tool which let's you search the three major search engines and shows you the results WITHOUT any logos.

Which Searchengine do you believe is best? Really?

After you have searched you can choose which results you found were the best. With that you get to see which search engine it was.

Every search that is made through Blindsearch is registered. Therefore Kordahi can calculate which search engine has the best percentages. At this moment the total percentages are not there when performing a search but on average Google has got about 45% with Bing at around 32% and Yahoo at about 23%.

It's a very usefull tool which let's you see the results without prejudice. It can be a nice research tool to find out which search engine users really prefer, but it's just an indication. Search engines do research like this all the time and have better information on it than this tool. However, it is very nice to play around with.

  • I tried it for 3 searches and all tree of them I voted for Google.
    Bing just has way to much spam. They really should do something about that. I think they need a team of Quality raters like Google has in every country.
    The English results are better than the Dutch ones though..

    Umm, strange - I voted for Bing twice and Google once.

    I wonder how much is influenced by me being in SEO and having different opinions of what deserves to be top though?
