Software giant Microsoft announced a series of major upgrades to its search engine, Bing, at an event in San Francisco. The upgrades are an attempt to get a larger piece of the internet search engine pie from market shareholder Google.
A patent lawsuit filed by Microsoft’s co-founder Paul Allen has been dismissed due to its vague nature. The lawsuit was filed earlier this year against the technology giants.
Dogpile, a relatively unknown Meta search engine, compiles results from a variety of different directories and search engines. The results are compiled into an easy to read list. Dogpile relies on multiple different search engines, including LookSmart, MIVA, About, Ask, Bing, Yahoo and Google. They claim to have the ability to search a far greater portion of the internet as opposed to a traditional search engine. With a clever ‘pet’ named Arfie, Dogpile, and other services like it, may soon overpower traditional search engines. As an audio search engine, Dogpile has the ability to quickly cut through unrelated websites and present the user with a list of useful sites guaranteed to meet their needs.
We all have our favorite search engines. From Google and Bing to lesser-known search engines, these websites help us sort through the billions of web pages available on the Internet. Instead of spending hours trying to find the information we want, search engines give us accurate results in under a second. Many people assume that there are only a few search engines. The reality is there is many search engines. Some of these are generalized while others are aimed at a more specific demographic. Still, the list of search engine websites worldwide is growing.
If you are looking for a specific piece of information on the Internet, you would have to spend literally days sifting through the millions of sites if it were not for search engines. Search engines are simply programs that do the searching for you. They use the words or phrases, called keywords that you have input into their request box to locate websites that contain the information you are looking for. Popular search engines, like Google, Bing and Ask, processes millions of requests every day. They churn out search engine result pages, loaded with websites, in mere seconds. When you consider the sheer amount of data contained on the web, it is easy to understand how truly amazing these programs are.
Google has really been giving the search world a one-two punch with daily developments for user interaction. Both MSN Live Search (now known as Bing) and Yahoo have re-invented their search platforms, but Google is still on the up-and-up and maintaining firm control in the search market. To cut costs and raise revenues the two other search engines have joined forces. Now that they have gotten together, what shall we call this duo? YaBing!? I hope it catches on!
The year 2009 has been one of the biggest years in my lifetime. I’ve graduated, started my first full-time job, and I have learned so much about myself within this year alone! But, this blog post isn’t about me! It’s about the year. Let’s take a moment and look back at this spectacular year.
In a move to take some of the momentum away from Google, Microsoft has re-entered their negations with Yahoo. It could potentially “give Microsoft roughly 30 percent share of the online search market.” (AdAge, http://adage.com/digital/article?article_id=138138). For those of us in the search industry, this is some very significant news. What does this mean to internet marketing? and Will we have to make added effort in diversifying our PPC accounts? More importantly, will we no longer only worry about how visible we are in the eyes of Google?
Have you seen the commercials for Bing’s new Farecast Technology feature? I liked the new look of the new MSN search when Bing was released by Microsoft. However, even though the search results are more organized , half of my search queries are images. Bing has not been able to match up to the abundance [...]
