Bing Roars Earlier than Announced


It looks like the folks at Microsoft could no longer contain the excitement over their new search engine Bing. Bing is now alive and is starting to roar ahead of the June 3 schedule. That means you can start playing around searchenginejournalbing

Here’s some of  initial impression and observation:

  • Searching is fast, undoubtedly
  • The look and feel is pretty sleek as well (the tiger image could go away as it’s a bit distracting and emits an air of unprofessionalism)
  • The Quick Preview feature is pretty useful when displaying search result caption
  • Search filter, especially in the video search is good (sorry folks, no YouTube search results here)

Some interesting things to try out. Searching for Bing on Goole yields the following SERPs.


It’s too early to tell how Bing could possibly impact the search engine market. But certainly some of its innovative features are something worth following (and perhaps copying) by Google. Although, Google would probably focus more on its latest project, Google Wave which is as equally cool as Bing although in a different avenue.

  1. @Technology Slice

    Only United States version has all the bells and whistles so no point in evaluating other local versions (check top right of screen to see what version you’re looking at). :-)

  2. Bing’s focus on local is interesting. However, this can reduce their advertiser’s bottom line, as local listing can bypass the bigger brands.

    By the way, AAfter Search is focused on local for a while.

  3. Can some one guide on how to set filter on bing so that unwanted video viewing can be set to ON and OFF ?
