Which Search Engine you choose in blind search test?

by Sushant Risodkar · 31 comments

As we know that, whenever we want to search something on web, the word “Google.com” hits into our mind. Yes, it’s true that Google has become the first choice for web users whenever they want to search on web.

But What if you are given a page divided in 3 columns with 3 kinds of results for your keyword from the search engine Google, Yahoo and Bing but not telling in which column that search engine results lies. Looks Interesting? Even I think the same.

Michael Kordahi, an employee of Microsoft created a tool as Blind Search that will return search results in 3 different columns but it doesn’t says that which search engine lie up in each column, those columns are changed at random so that they can not identify if it Google, Yahoo! or Bing.

The challenge is to choose the column you most like after entering your search keyword and then you get the images of the 3 search engines so you can differentiate the search results.


The tool lets you search for text or images that you can compare and choose your favorite result.

The objective of the site is simple, they want to see what happens when you remove the logos of the search engines and see which search engine your brain liked the most.

The site also released the data after testing it for 8 weeks and according to it people choose Google: 41%, Bing: 31%, Yahoo: 28%

So, I recommend to check and participate in my blog poll to tell which search engine you choose in the blind test.

I am shocket…my results that I picked were Yahoo. I typed in “promote your blog” which is a phrase I am targetting right now. I only came up in Yahoo and that is why I selected it.

I thought Google would stand out but I have to say I couldn’t see much difference in the results for what I was searching on. I think I’ll stick with Google though. There’s safety in numbers!
Cheers, Chloe

I think the site has been taken down due to some manipulation going on.

I took the test and choose Google 4 out of 5 times. I chose Bing once. I’m sure Bing will get gain more interest over time, but Yahoo search is absolutely horrible, it needs to vanish for good. Thanks Typhoon for the taste test I really enjoyed this 🙂

I would use bing. It gives some extra information at the side of the search result. Which works as a guideline before we actually click on it.
