The difference between Bing & Caffeine  

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

With Bing, images are the listed first then the news and blog links are nowhere to be found on the first page of results. The whole Bing page feels more like a site optimized to sell users some goods. But with Caffeine, video links are fourth on the page. News and blog posts are listed a little further down the video results. Caffeine and the exiting Google search results are less different from one another than are Google's and Bing's current results.

Video results are in approximately the same place using the current Google search infrastructure as they are when using Caffeine. With the existing infrastructure, image results are at the bottom of the first page of results. News and blog spot results are the same way they are with Caffeine about 2/3 of the way down the page.

They added that search engine experts will be analyzing Caffeine far more methodically in the coming days. Also they added that Google's Caffeine indexing system seems like it is meant to give up results that are more Bing like in any way.
