Bing Sucks

As a website operator, you gotta be able to track how people find your stuff. That way, you can see what people are Googling to find your site, or if someone sweet is linking to you. It’s just part of the game.

Lately, I’ve seen people using a search engine called Bing with more frequency. I have no clue what it is or who runs it, but I do know that Bing sucks.

I went to their search engine homepage, and did a search for “Pittsburgh Sports and Mini Ponies.” Naturally, because I’m self-serving. What popped up was the image you see at the top of this post.

For whatever reason, my original blogspot page, which hasn’t been updated since early February, is the first result. Now, since I’ve switched to a new server/platform/software, I can accept that a newer search engine like Bing would take a bit to recognize that the old page isn’t the most recent. But then, under the name of the blogspot page is a list of what appears to be highly-discussed topics from said page.

June?” “January?” “Chris Kemoeatu?” “Rick Reilly?” Those are probably the LEAST discussed topics in PSAMP history. But my favorite has to be the inclusion of “On Meth.” I use that phrase whenever James Harrison plays out of his mind (a LOT in the past 2 seasons), and Bing rightfully recognizes that fact.

However, that gets negated by “Chris Kemoeatu.” That’s just wrong.

*SEMI UPDATE* (can’t comment on my own site, so this goes here) Hogs states that, “Bing is Microsoft’s answer to Google. Rumor is they spent a crapload of money promoting it and not so much actually developing it.”

So it’s the search engine version of Vista? BURN.
