Why Bing.de Sucks

Just one reason I found today. Even if I selected “Only English”, the first search results (including Ads) were redirecting me to German websites.

Bad Bad Bad!

  1. That’s because they are stupid. Unlike Google, Bing does not look at the language of the content, only at the domain. You probably noticed that all the hits you got are not on a .de domain and that in Microsoft’s eyes is “only english”.

  2. Bing is virtually a Google clone. The only difference makes theese awkward “features”.

  3. Interesting subject actlaluy.Reference Google local. It amazes me the amount of small businesses that have not claimed their places page. With a small amount of effort, they could easily improve their local listing and drive more sales.There are several companies in the UK (and maybe in the states too) that basically trawl through paper based directories (we have one called the Yellow Pages here), and create listing pages together with their own directory pages appearing in the SERPS.Google seems to be giving a lot of weighting to local place pages. For such a relative small amount of effort (or at least when compared to conventional SEO), this has got to be a no brainer surely?

  4. Wow, this article is good, my younger sister is analyzing such things, so I am going to convey her.
