Inline Answes on Bing International

As you may know, Bing offers its users different experiences, depending on their market. While this may not seem like a very good idea, I believe that it is best to offer users the best experience available for the data sets Bing is working with on that market. Different users behave differently and Bing is an ever growning search engine, aiming to become even stronger,… Read More

Multi Entity Inline Answers on Bing

The inline answers in Bing now have a new “friend”. Today, the implementation I’ve worked on for the disambiguation queries, or multi entities has reached production on the Bing US market.

Remember this?   It’s history! I decided it is high time to redesign my website and give it a fresh new look and feel. After taking it to the “hairdresser”, this is the outcome I came up with and I will keep improving it wehenever I’ll have the time. I’ve been postponing this redesign for almost a year.
