Unexpectedly Intriguing!
June 19, 2015

Search engines like Google and Bing try to make searches faster by attempting to predict what you might be searching for based upon what other people using the search engines have been seeking. We wondered what would happen if we simply asked each of these search engines "why". The screen shots below reveal what we found. First, here are our results from Bing:

Bing Search Results for 'why'

And then we repeated the exercise for Google. Here are the autocomplete suggestions that it offered when we simply asked "why":

Google Search Results for 'why'

And so we discover that the people who use Bing have a lot less icky health situations than people who use Google. And that the users of both search engines are particularly curious about why their dogs are eating grass.

Who says that Google automcomplete is not as weird, dark or fun as it used to be?
