Does Bing Suck?

I've been looking through Bing's search results, and am disappointed.

If you Bing search "The Compound Interest Paradox", my blog post on the subject isn't listed. (Ironically, the knol I wrote was listed. I briefly experimented with knol and then I gave up on knol as a waste of time. )

Bing doesn't rank my blog for "monetizing the debt", but I'm near the top of Google.

Bing doesn't list me for "The Supreme Leader of Humanity". In Google, I'm #1 for that search phrase. As far as I can tell, my blog is the only site that regularly uses that phrase.

Looking at Bing, I don't see anything that stands out for "This is better than Google!" There are a quite a few deficiencies. The ability to search for a specific date range is a missing feature.

When I'm looking for help on Excel or Visual Studio, I get better answers via Google than with Microsoft's own online help/search system!

Bing has some serious problems with their result relevance. Do a search in Bing and in Google and I guarantee you will find a page with information relevant to you faster on Google, perhaps never on Bing. I gave it a chance, now I don't use it at all.

Microsoft! If you're listening, bring back Ms. Dewey. At least she was fun to look at.
