My take on "new" MSN search engine….

So finally Microsoft launched its new search engine.........

I was dazed after hearing this news coz personally did not expected that….

I was expecting one more Integration between Yahoo and Microsoft my so called “MicroYahoo” and that was their search engines integration….as couple of month ago they have integrated their chat messenger.

BUT anyways as they have come with their own New Search Engine , so as a Computer Geek we should feel HAPPY considering the fact that competitions are always good for Innovations!!!! Isn’t It ?

For them it is a strong move to acquire the market share in Web search as Google and Yahoo are ahead.

Microsoft said it aims to improve the search experience by allowing for refined queries and presenting results on a new user-friendly interface”.

So for the above said statement I thought why not lets try this new search engine and compare it with my all time favorite Google’s search !!!!

So here I go :

I am going to search “Steve Irwin” in Microsoft’s and Google’s search and I will compare the results here.
But before I do that let me tell you what I expect from my search :

(1) It should return me the home page of “Steve Irwin” ( if he has one )
(2) If the personal web page dose not exist , than I would like to get some information about Steve Irwin from Wikipedia , the free encyclopedia
(3) As he was the famous star for Animal’s planet channel so I would like to get the link from Animals’ planet.
(4) I should get pages from Australian Zoo

Well , let me not expect more :)

Now here I am going to compare what I got !!!
Here I will just compare the results of first page ( make sense ) isn’t it ?

Ok , So From Google’s

I got 10 links in the first page( not considering the first link "News results")
They are :

Australia Zoo - Home of the Crocodile Hunter
Welcome to The Crocodile Hunter Website

Steve Irwin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Steve Irwin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Animal Planet's Crocodile Hunter with Steve Irwin
Animal Planet :: The Crocodile Hunter

Steve Irwin (II)

Mate tells of Irwin's last moments NEWS.com.au

BBC NEWS World Asia-Pacific 'Crocodile Hunter' Irwin killed

Steve Irwin

Now From Microsoft’s

I got 10 links in first page ( not considering the first link "News results")
They are

Steve Irwin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin dead
Stingray kills 'Crocodile Hunter'

Steve Irwin (II)

Animal Planet's Crocodile Hunter with Steve Irwin
Animal Planet :: The Crocodile Hunter

Steve Irwin

Australia Zoo - Home of the Crocodile Hunter

‘Crocodile Hunter’ Steve Irwin killed by stingray

Steve Irwin at Open Switch

Well if I look at these results and compare it to my expectation, without being biased to any one I would say Google has given me the close result. Its True !!

But I can not say this that Microsoft’s new search engine is not better just by this small comparisons !!! Agree ?

Ok , so having said that I must thank Microsoft for its great move for putting the Web search engines in Eerie.

And let me wish them to meet their expectations. And as they are expecting me to use the same so I can not promise but can say that definitely I am going to compare them for some time and keep updating my post.And if they IMPRESSED me then….what to say “I can’t say bye bye to google but I can Warm welcome Microsoft “

This is Not Good : None of them have given my post on first page :(

I don't know why I made the first page for an MSN search for Steve Irwin. Mine is just a little personal blog, nothing major. I wonder why MSN chooses to rank me so high and Google chooses to rank me so low?

Ben,
Cogretulations for making on the first page of MSN/Google.
It's feel groovy when you see your own post on google/msn search.
I also experienced this quite some time.
