    Exclamation Have you taken the Blind Search Engine Test yet?

    What happens when you do a search that doesn’t have branding. Are you swayed by the branding of our favourite search engines?



    To figure it out, Michael Kordahi has built a “Blind Search”. Basically, you enter a query, get back three results in random order then select the column which you believe gave you the best results.

    At the time of writing, Google was leading at 40%, followed by Bing at 38% & Yahoo at 22%.

    Reminds me of the ‘Mojave Experiment’. Will be interesting to see these results develop.

    I searched for The Windows Club and voted for what I felt were the best results. What is your experience?

    Great post Andy. I tried TT races, because they are on at the moment and while, both that returned results, returned the same page at the start, Bing was the only one to give more than one totally correctly identified not only the Isle of Man TT but other TTs. Yahoo did nothing, and Google went wondering off somewhere. I have to say that I am very impressed by Bing so far.

    The results are certainly flip-flopping throughout the day. This is what it shows as I post this response:


    Google: 30%, Bing: 24%, Yahoo: 46% | 41,404 votes

    How did Yahoo get so many votes?

    ^ @Corrine : here is the answer of your ques...
    UPDATE: The poll has been compromised. Probably equally due to my lack of leet skills and to the malicious person gaming it.

    I’ve removed the ability to see the results until I sort this out. Meanwhile you can still have fun playing with blind search. Feel free to blame the douche for ruining it for everybody. Meanwhile, I wouldn’t take this a scientific whats-e-ma-jing, it’s just a bit of observational fun.
