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.

That’s a really cool idea. I chose Yahoo. My second choice would have been Bing. It’s really interesting to know we may just choose Google because of it’s name.

Thanks for sharing!

It’s like a mindset of people which makes them go to google.com for searching anything. The other two rival companies have to change and challenge this thing.

I ended up at bing 🙂 It has a pop window function, which tells me more about the website before I click on it.

From a searcher point of view, that feature is awesome. But from a website / blog owner point of view it’s sux..
