    I found a blind test. you type in a search word and results from google, yahoo, & bing are presented.

    you don't which is which and have to select the one you prefer. i used it five times, bing my faovurite 3 out 5 times, google 2 times

    http://bingdevelop.com/bingcompete/compare-your-search-bing-vs-google-vs-yahoo/

    post your results either here on the site. i like to see how people are in comparison

    Good find. It's like the Pepsi-Coke challenge. I'm interested to see which one people actually prefer. People have it so ingrained in their head that Google = search. So many people may be sticking with Google more out of habit.

    That's the site I mentioned elsewhere. My results were Google 89, Yahoo 11, Bing 0.

    I was amazed that Bing didn't get anything at all when you consider just the luck of the draw when there were times it was hard to pick a winner. Which, I guess, says something in itself.

    I really like Bing as well and I'm not just saying that because I am ranking good for it. It seems to be really improved since the Live search days.

    Using google for search is my habit too and I do consciously try nowadays to use bing but still have to get used to using it.

    I took the search myself and found Bing and google sharing the vote 2 times each with yahoo getting the last one! :)

    Ok so as it turns out i tried the search and the most suitable results i got were from Yahoo as compared to Google and Bing, but the thing is that i've become so accustomed to using Google i kinda find it hard to start using another search engine anymore, any comments on this? Because I'm giving my views out as a user not as someone who's interest is simply in SEO or PPC for that matter.

    Bing is so much better than live search, dont like the domain name and dont really like the layout, sticking with google for the time being
