Bing Controversy

Google has accused Microsoft of using Google search results for Bing. They say that Bing is cheating. Google got a response from Microsoft that was vague. They then declared this response meant that Microsoft was admitting that they were stealing Google search results for Bing. All of this info was released on the Search Engine Land web site.

Microsoft quickly came out firing. They state that "we do not copy Google's results." They use about a thousand signals for their search algorithm. They did admit that their original email to Google was not entirely clear. They also call Googles antics a stunt. I am sure as Bing becomes more popular, there will be more to this war.
