Bing.com: Great Search Experience

Microsoft’s new search engine Bing.com offers a great search experience. As a professional SEO, I look at tons of search results from many different types of queries. I have been amazed by the quality of the search results that Bing.com returns. One of the coolest features is that videos autoplay when you hover over them with your mouse…. what this means is that Bing.com just became the ultimate search engine for looking at porn. Porn keywords are some of the most searched words on the internet and if a search engine can win the pervs, the rest of us will inevitably follow.

Bing.com also has other features I found fascinating. When you visit just their homepage, they show high quality images with little interesting factoids that you can mouse over. It’s an interesting cross between Google’s frugality and Yahoo’s “internet portal” strategy. Bing.com’s shopping experience is not as good as Google’s though they do offer “cashback” on purchases.

What do you think about Bing.com?
