When search engines collide.

Reply Tue 6 Nov, 2012 10:42 am
A few months ago Microsoft and its Bing search engine were accused of using Google to find results when someone entered a search in Bing. Today I found an even more interesting phenomena. When I entered a search into Google, 3 of the first 4 results were Bing results.

This was my search term.
"larry lindsey prediction election"
This was the second result of my Google search.

I do find it interesting that so many Bing results show up when the video in question was less than 3 hours old. I had seen the video on CNBC this morning and was trying to find a prediction from Larry Lindsey on a website. If nothing it means those Google crawlers are pretty fast. I wonder if this is something we are going to see more often, search engines finding results from other search engines. Will this result in search engines becoming unusable?

Using Yahoo Bing was the first result.

Of course Bing is going to be first on Yahoo. Microsoft owns a large percentage of Yahoo and Yahoo has struck a deal with Microsoft to utilize Bing as its search engine. At the time of that deal, Yahoo was more concerned with content creation and ad revenues then its share of the search engine percentage.
