If I ask you, which search engine produces the best results for your keywords – almost all of you will say “GOOGLE!”. Now, you never verified that and went with the trend. I welcome you to try out the Blind Search Tool!
URL: The Blind Search
The blind search tool lets you enter your keyword in the search box. It then makes a search on three different search engines [ Google, Bing & Yahoo ]. The results are then displayed in three columns without disclosing which column belongs to which search engine. You are then asked to select the best result just by looking at the relevance of the results. Once you choose the best result; it shows you which search engine produced that.
I searched thrice. I selected Bing twice and Yahoo once 🙂 ! .
So I’m thinking, have I been programmed to think that it’s always the Google that produces the best search results? Or is it their clean GUI that makes me want to search there. Or is it that I’m sticking to Google because everyone around me thinks that Google’s the best?
Give Blind Search a try and let me know what you found out. It might be that you’ll choose Google. That’s alright. But definitely, worth giving a thought.
