Just what is it with Microsoft and their staggering inability to make a search engine that works? People use Google over Yahoo! and MSN (or Live.com, or whatever the hell it’s called today) because Google gives you the most relevant results to a query. If you’re looking something, you’ll find it by using Google. People don’t use MSN (Live.com) because it throws back completely useless, irrelevant, crap results.
It’s not rocket science, yet Microsoft, in an attempt to get people to use their search engine, are offering free gifts and points.
I just don’t get it. If Microsoft want people to use their search engine, make it work. Make it actually give you the information you’re looking for. Don’t pay people to search, or offer them prizes to use your crap search engine, just make the bloody thing work.
Sadly them seem completely unable to do that, much like so many other so called search engines.
Don’t bother with frills, prizes, paying people or fancy Ajax features, just offer a search engine that gives you results, devoid of spam. Then people will use it.
