Scoble Likes Google The Best
Robert Scoble, a major blogger who is also a "technical evangelist" at Microsoft, says in his post "Just a little search comparison":
Personally, I still like Google the best. Why? MSN and Yahoo push their results down with too much advertising.Danny Sullivan at the Search Engine Watch blog actually holds up a ruler to his screen to vet Scoble's assertion. His findings are that it's basically true. MSN's search results are actually at the same height as Google's, but Google fills the intervening space more with News and Desktop search results, while MSN has all ads (and Yahoo puts a billion ads, relatively speaking). Of course, Jeeves is the worst offender.
