Google Says MSN Search is #1

The debate is over. You know that raging debate about which search engine is the best? Yep, it's over. Google has given up its seat as the top dog and has dubbed MSN the #1 Search Engine.

(20) Thoughts on Google Says MSN Search is #1

What? That is completely ridiculous, can't beleive msn would rank #1 using the "search" keyword.

Perhaps either the author or the commenter has "Personalized Search" enabled and doesn't realize it? This can skew the order of results.

Additionally, I dunno that just searching for 'search' really means 'best web search engine'...try searching for 'web search' or 'find on the web'...MSN isn't number one on either of those searches on Google.

But if you google "search engine" google beats msn ;).

I like the fact that google isn't going to stick their site at the top of the searchlist, especially since someone searching the web from google doesn't usually need to find GOOGLE. They stick to their algorithms without artificially altering results is what I get from this.

Dumb. Google would admit that MSN was the number one search engine if those were the results when you typed in search engine. As it happens though,the number one result for 'search engine' is guess what...GOOGLE

google = garbage

Google is just a glorified directory with the same corporate/adsense/spam sites dominating entire ranges of key words and markets. Google has sold all commercial keywords to the highest bidders and there is no longer any diversity or relevancy. The penalize legit web site owners for trivial mistakes while hardcore web hackers build sites that totally dominate the search results across the board.

Google has also used third world slave labor to build a massive network of affiliate/adsense sites that push their ads with fluff content and spam. This has undermined legit american webmasters who now have to compete in their home market with millions of third world amateur web designers creating useless garbage sites to milk americans out of money.

Thanks google for destroying the usefullness of the web for americans.

Also Yahoo search IS google search. They are one and the same regardless of what yahoo claims.

Look! MSN says that NEITHER google or msn are the best. In fact, when i searched "search" on the only search engine besides was yahoo and it was halfway down the list, MAN MSN SUCKS! oh... P.S. the only reason msn is ranked higher is because it has more links to it. It probally has all sorts of links from every microsoft page ever created mot to mension it being to homepage of many internet providers and links to it are in the Windows Operating System. To test this type "failure" into google, yeup its ma man GWB Baby! i guess that is true... but ironic

The fact that MSN SEARCH have the word SEARCH in the title might be a good reason for it to come first in the search results...

Comments by Ronnie : Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 10:27 PM

The correct way to phrase the search would have been "msn search" ( surrounded by quotes ) and "google" .

A google search for search engine shows
alta vista 1
and msn 2
googleukm 3

A9 search 4

it seems, like LIVE prefer to be out of provocative search results ;)

Well, one thing's for sure. If you searched for "sense of humor," none of the commenters on this thread would come up on the first page.

Google always shows sponsored links separately. Google places thing up the list depending on how many othe rpeople link to and from the page and how many keyword match.

No shit Google isn't the 1st result.

a. No one links to google because we all know the address.
b. It doesn't have search in it.

What the fuck, Google provides a clean user interface and TONS of easy-to-use features. What kind of loser loves using MSN search, its ultimate SHIT. In fact, I got to this page by typing "MSN Search is SHIT" in my piece of shit MSN Messenger garbage. If it weren't for the fac that people use microsoft products, no one would have to use them to talk to the people using them! I HATE MSND SEARCH. UTTER SHIT. QEDLOL

Msn Offers a different search result search to google but then you would expect it to ?? Im in the google camp but with one exception organic links should be presented first and should not have sponsored links directly above as this defeats the object. Contensious but why search who is number one its fairly obvious ?
