Seriously, for everyday use and searching, Bing is so much better than Google now

    In the past Bing and Google have been about the same in my opinion. But after the recent Panda/Penguin/EMD webspam updates from Google the quality of results is just absolute trash.

    So i started doing my searches in Bing and the results are much better. All solid sites in the top 10, none of the crap.

    The only thing i didnt like on Bing is that i cant search the past day,week,month.

    Seriously, next time you want to make a search on google which is not work related, try Bing instead because you might be surprised at how good their results are compared to Google.

    I have a similar experience to you.

    What I did for a while was use a website that gave you the Google results in a left frame and bing results in a right frame so you could make a direct comparison. After doing this for a week it became clear which was the better search engine.

    Funny things is - since the rise of those websites, Google now blocks its SERPS from rendering out in frames....

    Tbh Google is by any means superior in regards to Bing. I don't get why people hate Google so much these days - SE's like Bing and Yahoo seem to be falling way behind. I had a few sites that got malware attacked a few weeks back - they're of course off Google now but one of them still rank #1 in Bing.

    Most of the times Bing gives good results - not necessarily better
    but one thing where bing is lagging is the size of their index
    and their refresh frequency.

    One of my websites was ranking first page on bing and blekko after a month it expired.

    Similarly, there are some queries like ip addresses and other such not used by common people queries where bing is seriously lacking
    due to their index size, otherwise, their rankings are good, IMO.
