Bing is a Microsoft search engine launched May 28, 2009. Microsoft calls it a “decision engine” because it is designed to return search results in a format that organizes the answers to your needs. When you search for Bing, in addition to providing relevant search results, the search engine also displays a list of related searches on the left side of the search engine results page (SERP). You can also access a quick link to see the history of recent searches. Bing uses the technology of a company called Powerset, acquired by Microsoft. Bing conducts various advertising campaigns online, on television, in print media and on the radio to promote the search engine. The different campaigns promote search engine services and features to online users, not to mention major competitors such as Google and Yahoo! Bing has received a lot of traffic on its site because of the superior quality of its results compared to its competitors.
Bing and Google are search engines that perform one of the most basic tasks of everyday Web browsing, but how are they different? Let’s take a look at four of their main differences.
For the most part, the consensus is that there is not much difference in quality between the search results generated by Bing and Google. However, when it comes to looking for urgent information, there are some differences to keep in mind. First of all, if you are looking for news articles or are looking for something that requires the latest information, Bing is slightly less useful than Google in that it does not always provide the publication date next to the search results, This can make it more difficult to quickly see which article or resource contains the latest information. Google provides these dates more often. The fact that Bing does not provide these dates very often also tends to point to another difference; Bing does not always place the latest articles at the top of its search results and tends to post older articles instead of more relevant and recent articles or videos. Google tends to be more consistent when it comes to making sure the latest titles appear at the top of its search results.
