As many of the users would have noticed last week both Microsoft and Google log-head around the search algorithms and how we at Bing used different approach to provide results. The newsmen caught on it and this was the talk-of-the-town (at least for me) couldn’t help avoid this topic come up again and again, which I refer to as Search Malakhara (ma-la-kh-rah) in my native language (URDU) means ‘contest’. You can read more about the post form Microsoft’s Senior Vice President, Online Services Division - Yusuf Mehdi at HERE.
However more interestingly I would encourage your attention to Farsight 2011: Beyond the Search Box in case you have missed out on the great content and discussion, by all the who-is-who of the industry, you can seek more details at http://bigthink.com/series/62
As always happy reading and share your feedback by leaving comments!
