Do you use Bing? I don’t think Bing has become a verb the same way that Google has. I’ve never heard anyone say “let me Bing that”. Microsoft is trying to compete with Google for a bigger portion of the search market. They recently launched a site where you can compare a Google search with a Bing search side-by-side. It’s called bingiton.com – clever, right?
I revisited this article, originally published last November, to see if there were any changes with safe search settings in Google, Bing and Yahoo. I found that the results were the same: All three major search engines default to the moderate “Safe Search” setting, and you should change that to “strict” for the best results. Starting next week I’ll be adding step-by-step instructions for each search engine.
