Google 51% in blind search test

It’s remarkable how Google scored this low, but everyone must admit that Google turns out to be the least visual appealing. Maybe that did it.

In a blind “taste test” searchers chose Google, then Microsoft and Yahoo.
That’s according to the results of a poll created last week by the
Google Operating System blog. Participants could try out three unidentified search engines and vote which had the best results. The results are in and 51 percent of the more than 2,000 people who voted said Google had the best results. That was followed by 35 percent for Live Search and 30 percent for Yahoo. In comments to the blog post people said they were surprised Microsoft was ahead of Yahoo, but also surprised Google’s percentage wasn’t higher.
Interestingly, some of the most frequent queries included “Google,” “Microsoft,” “sex,” “cow” and “Liverpool.”
