Bing it on rigged?

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.

    5. Where Bingiton is rigged is in the image results. In the side-by-side after you type in the search result, you will never see images on the Google side. But open up that exact same search result in a new window with just Google, and clearly, Google brings up images on your searches 99% of the time. Plus, I noticed that if you take a while to select, left or right, the next pop-up suggests that you make your choice faster. Simply put, they want you to choose the side with the pictures, which in the Bingiton results will always be Bing. And they don't want you to actually study the validity of the other content, which Google wins. Bottom line, Bing is a joke.

    8. i based my votes on luring appearance and the first few websites that came up. Did the test twice and 3 out of my 5 tests came in to Bing's favor. I then did an actual google search on many of the same searches i used for the test and i found that stupid Bing failed to show the whole google search page. For expample i search James Hetfield of metallica. On the test it showed googles boring results with lack a images, though honestly images arent everything, but on the acutal google search it will show those same websites plus a huge portrait of James Hetfield, his bio, his place in the band of Metallica, his age, genre of music and even showed what other people searched for that searched for him, all those people being current and previous members of the band. Also showing other bands often compared to metallica. All this on the right side of the page, the half Bing decided not to show in it's tests. So its not rigged but very misleading. i choose google for my web browser. nice try bing.

    9. ^this I agree. I think its a little rigged. I type in "reel people" a music group on bing and google itself, it came with the music website first but When I went to bing it on.com and typed "reel people", bing websearch was the same but the google websearch was moved around (i.e not the music website first), some other website(It should've been the same music website on both). I'm looking on the google search and bing it on saying wtf? that isn't true. But I don't care, My most important searches always come up first on google. Plus it has a online calculator when you type numbers and units which is useful.

    10. You know, atleast google doesnt have to use commericials to get anyone on it:) Google for life. Im not takin some dumb thing like that. I tried bing when it first came out. Ehh didnt like it then dont like it now. And i agree that its making google look better:)

    11. When I did it Google won so it is not rigged

      Delete
    12. when i did the bing it on, im sure it was rigged because i chose 1 bing, 1 draw, and 3 googles because google worked the best for me. Yet it said i chose 4/5 bings and 1 draw

      Delete
    13. I checked Google in another tab and got all 5 Google and it chose Google as the winner, don't know whats wrong with your computers or contests

      Delete
    14. i took it but before choosing my which page was better i actually went on google and searched it. The search results were really good and identical to those on the right hand side. However, once i had finished i checked the results i had credited bing with the win of search results identical to googles! its rigged!

    1. Actually no, no I am not going to delete your comment. I am happy that you actually use the proper definition of FTW.

      FTW does NOT mean "For The Win". That does not even mean anything!

      The only comments that I have ever deleted are blantent spam that has got nothing to do with the post. I have even left some spam comments if I felt their content could benefit a reader. I believe in preserving free speech, which is why you do not need to sign into anything to post comments here.

      Thanks for your contribution.

    2. Actually no, FTW means For the Win.

      While some believe it to mean, "Fuck the World," it was first used to signify support for something. For example, a new meme popped up, and you wished to announce your support for it, hence, "*meme name* FTW (for the win)."

      Basically, if you want something to "win" you say FTW. It does mean something, and it IS the proper usage.

      Delete
    3. How old are you that you believe that FTW originally meant "for the win"? This was not even a saying, and there was no such thing as a "meme" when FTW originally stood for FUCK THE WORLD, which originated at least in the mid to early 1990's.

      Unfortunately you posted as anonymous, so while this posting will remain for all to see your stupidity, only you will know what a fucking idiot you are.

      There is a first time for everything, and you are effectively B& from my site, GTFO.

    4. Ah, how I miss the sweet ignorance of MY youth. I'm sorry, sir, but in this case, you are the one who is mistaken. But as I have learned, there are not many men willing to admit their mistakes, so this argument is not worth having. Fear not that I might return to this site, as I prefer to read the ramblings of those who know of that which they speak.

      And, for the record, I did not suggest that memes were the first usage of FTW, simply that it was a likely scenario in which it may be used. I'm sorry if you misunderstood that.

      Please, enjoy making your blog, and I hope you continue to bring joy to your readers, even if I cannot count myself among that number.

      Good day.

    5. Perhaps I may have over reacted in my initial response to you, for that I apologize.

      I am not sure how to take your comment about you missing the sweet ignorance of your youth. I interpret it as that is some sort of jab at me. If so, then thank you for your compliment in claiming I still have some youth left in me.

      The earliest use of the term "for the win" is likely its use in the television show Hollywood Squares, outside of that television show that phrase was never used in any context.

      The phrase "fuck the world" however was in use, and increased in use with the popularity of the 2pac song by the same name. FTW was commonly used as an abbreviation of this phrase even before instant messages, text messages and txt spk.

      FTW being defined as "for the win" only began sometime between 1999 and 2000 with the popularity of MMOG games such as World of Warcraft.

      I am sure that both phrases probably have origins that can be traced back further than the 80's or 90's that is hardly the point. The point is the abbreviation FTW stood for "fuck the world" way before "for the win" ever became a popular or common saying, which did not occur until the beginning of this millennium.

      I guess that we can continue to disagree on the true definition of the abbreviation. I understand currently the more common and accepted definition is not of the one that I agree with, and it should not have bothered me so much. After all I did not get a tattoo of FTW as one of my old friends did back in the 90's so I shouldn't really take this so personally.

      As for preferring to read the ramblings of people who know of what they speak, If you take some time to look around the rest of my blog you will see that everything posted is from experience and knowledge. I did break the professionalism that I approach this blog with in these comments, and for that I am sorry. While this is not a commercial blog, nor is it really a personal blog, the purpose of this blog is to present information to the readers in a professional way to help them better understand the various topics of discussion brought up.

      The position of my argument has not changed, as I do not believe that there is sufficient evidence or proof that has been presented or discovered by myself to change my initial belief, but the manner in which I articulated that argument was in bad judgement and poor taste.

    6. Why was this even an argument?! Talk to any real biker, not a douche bag on a suped up moped and frosted tips, a real outlaw biker. FTW has meant "FUCK THE WORLD" for almost as long as outlaw bikers have been around. "For the win"?! WTF?! To clarify, that means "what the fuck" not "when tigers fart". Just in case anybody was confused.

      Thanks,
      Nobody

    7. I do declare this thread of comments has digressed sorely from the original topic from which it was spawned.

      I thought I might make that observation.

    8. I concur. And unfortunately I got tied up in this whole debate myself. I contemplated removing the offending comments, however in the spirit of the free expression of thoughts, ideas and stance I take against censorship, I have decided to leave everything here intact.

      As stated before, I believe in free exchange of thoughts and ideas, which is why there is no restrictions on posting here, and no need to sign into anything. The only time a comment may be removed from here is if it is blatant spam, and even then I occasionally leave spam comments if the product or service compliments the post, or may be of some value to the reader.

    9. The fact that this 5 paragraph debate is over the first definition of something as trivial as FTW reminds me why I have lost all hope in humanity. Feel proud, whether you are some child or senile old fart, you both share the same immaturity complex. Good night. I'm an asshole and I'm right.

    10. what about the word "swag"? I think allot of people are still confused with what it means?some people say it means " secretly we are gay". while others use it in everything? Can you please explain?

      Delete
    11. Actually, "memes" were a term coined in 1976 (for you history buffs, well before the internet) by author Richard Dawkins. His meaning was an idea or thought transferred person to person within a culture. (ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meme)

      It was applied to internet savvy people when they spread ideas like acronyms, emoticons, sayings, and funny cat pictures. To someone outside the internet culture, a meme has little meaning. Just like to someone outside the culture of France may not fully appreciate say... artisan cheeses.

      So in response: you are both correct as to the meaning of FTW; depending on culture. For internet-savvy people, FTW means "For the win". For people that don't give a rat's ass about the internet, FTW means "Fuck the world"

      Delete
    12. Internet savvy people? 1976? Wikipedia as a source? Are you joking?

      What year did you have your first computer? I bet I had mine before you.

      How many computers, tablets, smartphones, and other internet connected devices do you have? I can wait, I guarantee I have more than you.

      What is the category rating of your home's wired LAN cabling? What, you only use WiFi? What only 802.11G? What, only WEP? Its OK I've got my CAT6A cabling feeding at least 4 data jacks per room.

      I bet your running on a DSL connection.

      Go back to /b/ with that "internet-savvy people" bullshit.

      The internet turned to shit after AOL came out and everyone had to get a computer in their home. It was much better off when it was all BBSes, and newsgroups, and you had to contribute something to get something in return. Now all you AOL skiddies are obsessed with Facebook, claiming you are "internet savvy". Here's a few acronyms for you IDGAF, GTFO! BALEETED!

    13. I almost forgot to rebuff the first line of your post... "in 1976 (for you history buffs, well before the internet)"

      Get a history lesson, the internet existed WELL BEFORE 1976.

    14. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! SWEARING! People STOP swearing. Repeat this 500000 times:Swearing Imposes a Personal Penalty
      It gives a bad impression
      It makes you unpleasant to be with
      It endangers your relationships
      It's a tool for whiners and complainers
      It reduces respect people have for you
      It shows you don't have control
      It's a sign of a bad attitude
      It discloses a lack of character
      It's immature
      It reflects ignorance
      It sets a bad example

      Swearing is Bad for Society
      It contributes to the decline of civility
      It represents the dumbing down of America
      It offends more people than you think
      It makes others uncomfortable
      It is disrespectful of others
      It turns discussions into arguments
      It can be a sign of hostility
      It can lead to violence

      Swearing corrupts the English language
      It's abrasive, lazy language
      It doesn't communicate clearly
      It neglects more meaningful words
      It lacks imagination
      It has lost its effectiveness

      And swearing is just immature. I don't think I'll check this again, it'll have a ton of swearing at me. Like the article; don't like the comments.

  7. I saw the commercial, and tried it. I entered a company name, with the city and state that it's in. Bing had a decent amount of search results, while Google's results were way off base, had nothing to do with the company.

    I went on the Google browser, and entered the same search, and it came up with pages of the correct information very quickly. BING IT ON IS FIXED

  9. Seems the bingiton site does not work from Canada. So I used a VPN to access the site from an American ip address. I did not experience what was described above so I wonder if they have fixed their wording since you tried it. I got 3 to google, 1 to bing and one draw. The announcement at the top of the results page was "Bing won 1 round"

    What I really hated was not being able to click through to see the pages given. How do I know if the results provided are any good if I can't look at them. Plus they do not seem to want my Canadian business so I guess it is back to Google for me :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. It would seem that bing only takes the "results" frame from google - a search for any celebrity puts images of that person on bing's side, but google's side is just text. Do the same search on google's site, and it comes up with loads more information than bing does.

    Bingiton is rigged because they don't take into account ALL of the information provided by google.

    I just saw another of their commercials, and they have the caveat mentioned "when it comes to the search results."

    It's just clever coding and silly marketing. No one uses bing.

  11. If you type "What is..." before a word, it will say "Bing Dictionary" on the bing side.

  35. Hey guys, if you search "how to commit suicide" on google, it gives you the nationial suicide prevention lifeline number for the US as the first result. As Bing's first result and only results, it tells you how to do it. How to do it easily, I might add. Bing lets you autosearch it, whereas google care so much about your life, they don't. You have to type out every word in the sentence. So, a search engine that will gladly help you die easily, or a search engine that will do all it can, even before you have clicked search, to save your life? Hmm, i would have to go with the latter.
