Want to see a side-by-side comparison of how your developed websites rank in Bing and Google? It’s as simple as visiting Bing-vs-Google.com. This new website shows the results from both search engines directly next to each other, allowing you to easily see how your sites rank and the description and title for each page. Sure, you can just go to Bing and Google independently, but why not search both at once?
From my point of view, the most interesting aspect of this is the domain name. It would seem to be a risky endeavor to use both trademarks in a single domain name, especially because Microsoft is known to vigorously defend its marks. I don’t see any monetization of the website, so I don’t know about the legal issues.
The New York Times has an article in today’s paper, where they cite this website, so I am sure if it wasn’t on either company’s radar before, it is now. Ironically, the domain name without the dashes (BingvsGoogle.com) is also registered but is undeveloped. That page has the default Godaddy landing page, which is monetized with PPC links, potentially causing problems for that owner.
Thanks for sharing….that’s pretty cool. 🙂
