The bing search Engine history
Bing is the new name that brings together all the attempts to create a search engine for the Microsoft company: Windows Live, Msn, etc ...
Bing is the main google competitor. It brings the best search result from a query in a list format.
It was born in 2009, in an attempt to give a new global option for Internet searches. Microsoft used its most cutting-edge technology to shape this new search engine, which is slowly gaining strength on the Web, strategically allying with other Web companies that offer services, such as Twitter.
The interface of Bing is simple and intuitive, but it makes the difference with respect to other like Google for its graphic characteristics: Its background, changing day after day; the search bar, located further to the left; or its menu of search options, just above the bar.
Also the search results display is quite different from google.com
It is also important to note that it integrates perfectly with Windows Live personal accounts, being able to log in from the search engine and interact with the results of our searches. On advanced search methods and added services we will discuss in future articles.
To do a basic search it will be enough to write in the bar the text that we want to find out, and click on the button that has a magnifying glass drawn. Clicking on that button will show the related results, following the discrimination that we have previously marked in the search options menu. This option enables the screening of searches from the start, choosing if we want the results displayed are images, videos, purchases, news ... If we do not do any action on this menu and perform the search with the options checked by default, it will locate websites related to typed text.
Below the bar we can also determine if we want the results shown to us to be results from all over the world, only from an specific country or specific language. This way we will be able to focus much more the results, being easier to find the precise content that we are looking for.
Now we only have to read and click on the result that we consider most relevant for us. The results view provides information about each localized content (summary, linked URL, etc ...).
