Bing loses. My three-week experiment using bing as my primary search engine is over. I couldn’t stand to go a full month. The results on Bing were just too spammy. Google’s results are so much more trustworthy. All of Google’s efforts to cut-down on content farms and suspicious pages really does pay off. While I don’t like that some of the innocent real pages are suffering by Google’s cuts, I do like having a search engine where I know I get good results.
Bing’s rewards are nice. You can get a penny reward for every bing search you do. But is a penny really worth it? I’d pay that extra penny to get better results. I do about 775 google searches per month. That’s about $7.75 per month to have better search results. Totally worth it.
If someone paid you $10 a month to drop Google’s search and only use Bing, would you do it?
