I’ve just started skeptically using Bing. The first thing I searched for was “xPollinate”, my Live Writer plugin. I guess I can safely say, “Bing!”.
On Google, the first result was for a PHP data conversion project, hosted on a GeoCities web page (apparently not updated since 2004):
On Bing, the first result was my plugin’s CodePlex site. The PHP GeoCities site wasn’t even in the top 10.
Is this a case of bias? Is Google ranking sites about PHP higher than sites about Windows-based technology? Is Bing ranking Windows-based content higher? Or is this just a result of algorithms?
In any case, this is the first time I’ve preferred the results of a search engine other than Google.
