Stop pretending that Bing is even remotely as good as Google Search

Very often when a search engine debate escalates on a forum there are some rabid Bing defenders that just can't help but say Bing is just as good as google.

It is universally disagreed upon but I will say that Bing for america is very good. However Bing for every other country stinks, I will provide some screenshots of how I search and show you how Google wins. It would be awesome if you could prove me otherwise with screenshots as well.

Round #1

Google

Bing

Both did good, Google had an overall better visua design and grouping the same site into a very narrow area giving space for more results. There aren't a lot of results on this subject and Bing gave me just as relevant results as Google but had a intrusive advertisement.

Round #2

Google

Bing

Both did really well. Bing had relevant results but lacked the density of information that google has. Notice how Google groups Yahoo into 1 area whereas Bing spreads it out. It makes finding what I want much harder because it lacks a variety in sources.

Round #3

Google

Bing

Bing really has no idea what I'm searching for giving me results for unrelated Bing videos, and useless Norwegian pages. Both Google and Bing uses the Norwegian version of the search engine but when I search in English I want English results to be default. Google gave me a related video, overall very related search results and a great card with details on the right side.

Round #4

Google

Bing

Bing's result are not even remotely close to as good as Google. Look how many more credible sources Google came up with, 99% of the Bing results are all sketchy results.

Round #5

Google

Bing

Bing gave me a result for a very relevant site but the results were not as relevant. Google however gave me very related results.


One may think that I purposely chose search terms to make Google win this, however this is very generic things. When searching in my own language or for more niche things like Anime related content Bing is totally smashed because it's database is inferior, just look at the amount of hits that Google gets compared to Bing.

I find it hard to believe that some people find Bing more useful then Google, granted Bing is better when using the American version but it by no means reaches up to the level of personalization that Google has.

When I search with Google I often write as if I was talking to someone "Help my PC wont turn on after running virus scan" Google will find a ton of useful information whereas Bing will only give me PARTLY related results, aka half of it matches what I searched for, the other half doesn't match.

If your results searching with Bing varies with mine please posts screenshots, not so that I would discredit it, but so that I can see if it does in fact compete on the level of Google


DISCLAIMER: I am a user of Android, and Windows 8. I work in a Windows server 2008-2012 based environment and use Skype + Lync daily. I hate Bing with a passion because it really is the most useless search engine on this world and I love MS Office.
