    Nice post, I barely pay much attention to Bing, I suppose I should read more about it. My main page is only indexed with Bing. I guess their crawler is super slow? Or just picky?

    It was nice information about bing but I never understood if my site is not optimized or bing itself is not able to send considerable traffic as google.

    Google is for power net surfing. Bing targets a different segment of Googlers who use search engines for mere purposes.
    And Prabal, Wolfram Alpha is a whole different thing from a web search engine, it’s a logic machine. No camparison between Google, Bing and Wolfram Alpha. It will be like comparing dogs and humans. :P

    Bing still fails to fetch me traffic. Bing support team have poor guidelines for bloggers and lack helping mentality. Google FTW.
