Google search is more generous to me than Yahoo!

Since I got to know and use search engines, this is the first time that I have ever used any other search engines other than Google for a sake of comparison. But off lately I have been reading a lot about the trends and analysis of the internet service industry. And Google and Yahoo are invariably in most of the discussions.

I thought of comparing the results of Yahoo search engine with that of Google’s. The string that I had at the top of my head was my name – “Shabbir Husain”. On hitting the enter key once my name was typed on the text boxes for both Google and Yahoo search engines, I was surprised to find that the first link returned by Google was the link to my blog. Where as my blog was the 9th link returned by Yahoo.

Not sure what made the difference internally (technically), but I am glad that I managed to be on the first page of the results ;). And I know which search engine I shall continue using.

Try it yourself! But you never know you might get different results.
