What's the Best Way to Get Search Results from Bing?

Hello,

MSN's new Bing search engine is showing crazy numbers on some of their results. As always, I'm entering keyword phrases between quotes, but the results on some of the keywords are totally different from Google or Yahoo.

For instance, for one of my keywords Google shows 19,000 results, but MSN's Bing shows 18 million. How can that be?

Is there a way to get a more realistic number for keyword phrases?

Thanks for your input.

Hi Griser12,

It's not unusual to get quite different results with different search engines - the reason being that each search engine filters results differently. Perhaps Bing aren't filtering out the duplicates as well as Google at this stage.

http://www.search3.com/ is a neat little tool for comparing results from Google, Yahoo & Bing.

Bing also had some problems recently with indexing pages that are specifically no-follow. They're still working on some bugs it seems :)
