So after seeing the television commercials I decided to go to bingiton.com and compare Bing with Google. It had me do 5 searches. It declared Bing the winner of this round, yet I would love how they came to that.
The first search I felt was a draw, pretty much the same results for both search engines. I searched for nyphonejacks and there was not much of a noticeable difference between the two.
The second search was for NYS DMV. While it was difficult to choose a winner, I picked Bing, merely because the 2nd link was the actual DMV website, and it provided links in the search result for different categories within the site.
The third search I merely searched for S3. I wanted to use a vague search term. Google was the winner, I did not see results on the first page regarding the Samsung Galaxy S3 which is what I would assume most people searching S3 would be looking for.
The fourth search was for my girl friends email address. It is a Hotmail address, so I was assuming that Bing would do fairly well with this test, however I guess the Thai language prevented Bing from providing any results. Google found several websites where she posted her email address, so Google won this round.
The fifth and final search term was for the hometown of my girl friend. It appears that both searches favor Wikipedia as it ranked as the top result for both searches. I did not see much of a difference between the two so I put this one as a draw as well.
So lets tally the score. 2 draws, 2 votes for Google, and 1 vote for Bing. Yet despite the fact that Bing clearly lost, it still declared itself the winner "of this round". I guess it gave bing the credit for the two draws.
