Bing search is now showing a little feedback button in the search results and is asking everyone to rate the search results.

Competition is always good, we don’t want any single product (Google) to dominate the web. Bing is the first search engine that is actually at par with Google.

Bing is pretty to –I'm good

and that pretty picture doesn’t slow you down whereas Google has to keep the interface minimal for speed.

Now instead of mocking at Microsoft, Google is listening to the buzz and is trying to improve there search engine. There’s also news that Google is first time advertising it’s search capabilities – ‘Hey! We can do that also’

Sergey Brin – I think it will soon be possible to have a search engine that “understands” more of the queries and documents than we do today. Others claim to have accomplished this, and Google’s systems have more smarts behind the curtains than may be apparent from the outside, but the field as a whole is still shy of where I would have expected it to be.

So, which is more useful – The decision engine (Bing) or the understanding engine( Google) ?

Google search architect Anna Patterson her husband Tom Costello and Russell Power, who worked at Google on search indexing, Web rankings and spam detection, (He works as vice president of engineering at Cuil.) have launched a new search engine named cuil (pronounced ‘cool’)

cuil- it’s pitched as bigger, faster, and better than Google‘s flagship search engine in pretty much every way.

The most important difference between Cuil and Google is its ranking system. Rather than assigning priority to pages based on inbound links as Google does ("Pagerank"), Cuil analyzes the content of Web pages to divine their relevance to a search query. The service also displays images from Web results whenever possible. It all adds up to search results pages that are much more attractive.

Unfortunately the seems to be down when I tried to use it greeted me with –

We’ll be back soon…

Due to overwhelming interest, our Cuil servers are running a bit hot right now. The search engine is momentarily unavailable as we add more capacity.

Thanks for your patience.
