I Like Bing ResultsWhen Bing launched a bit over a week ago, we asked our readers via an anonymous poll if they like the new Microsoft search engine.

To my surprise, 70% of the responses said they like the new search engine.

Keep in mind, the index is mostly the same, but the search interface is the major difference, from what I understand. Interface is huge and clearly plays a major roll in relevancy.

Here is the break down of the 120 responses, where I asked, "Do You Like Bing's Search Results?"

:: Yes said 83 respondents or 69% :: No said 29 respondents or 24% :: Other... said 8 respondents or 7%

Here are the other answers:

  • they're okay i guess
  • Does it matter? People won't switch.
  • Relevancy of sites returned is still hinky. but there are interesting feautures
  • Where's the Sarcastic 'yes' option?
  • Generally good, local crap
  • It's really the same, nothing new.
  • No different than LiveSearch results
  • It's OK but not enough to switch
