Competition—isn’t it Great
November 11, 2004
Right on the heals of MSN’s new search Google announces that they have nearly doubled their index. It is good to know what your competition is doing and a strategize a a plan.
MSN new search tool is designed to compete directly with google. A new feature, the “near me” search is something different—searching around your geographical location. I am not too impressed yet to switch, nor do I think anyone else will. MSN only indexes 5 billion documents, more than 3 billion less than Google. Competition is fun to watch sometimes, and thought I would share what could be the beginning of the ‘Search Engine Wars’.
