Got indexed by Google in 2 hours, Can Bing and Yahoo! compete?

Thursday, November 5, 2009 @ 8:18 pm by ProBlogit.com

I asked myself this question so many times, “Can Bing and Yahoo! really compete with Google?” So I documented something last night.

Ok, ok, this morning, at past 2 o’clock in the morning. 🙂

I have to admit, I slept late las night, I mean morning already. I wrote a blog entry for my personal blog and posted it at 11:53pm, just before midnight. Then I finished reading and scanning other blogs that I am subscribed to. I have a habit to read everything before I sleep. It took me a while though to finish reading and scanning them.

Then before I went to bed, I thought of checking the top 3 search engines if the blog entry, Mount Gurten, Wabern, Bern, Switzerland Day Trip, that I posted at my personal blog got indexed. I typed the keywords “mount gurten” in Google, Bing and Yahoo!, and what did I find?


Well, the blog entry was number 3 on the first page of Google search engine results page (SERP) while it cannot be found in Bing and Yahoo! search engines.

I typed the keywords “mount gurten wabern” and it was number 1 on the first page of Google, and again, it cannot be found in Bing and Yahoo! search engine results pages.


Google was so fast in crawling my site and indexed the blog entry within 2 hours. What was Bing and Yahoo! doing then?

Just before I posted this blog entry here, I checked Google, Bing and Yahoo! again. The search engines results pages (SERPs) are the same.

Which makes me really wonder, can Bing and Yahoo! really compete with Google?

I know Bing and Yahoo! have different algorithms than Google but does it not show that they are not sort of paying attention when people are publishing?

Google, Bing and Yahoo! search engines already indexed my personal blog and other blogs, so to crawl and index it again is not a problem. So what makes Bing and Yahoo! so slow in finding out that a website or a blog has just been updated?

Maybe sleeping? 🙂
