#Search War Between #Google and #Microsoft's #Bing!

A chronicle of the Twitter war between Google and Microsoft over the former's allegations of Bing stealing search results from the latter. The battle begins with the publication of @DannySullivan's controversial article, prompting a war of words with @Skitzzo and others, and then spills over into a duel between Microsoft's @fxshaw and Google's @mattcutts, with @DaveWiner joining the fray.

Google: Bing Is Cheating, Copying Our Search Results http://selnd.com/ig2Ktm
Ben Cook @BenjaminCook
Does SELand doing a hit piece on Bing the day of Bings search event, accepting Google's word on everything seem questionable to anyone else?
Ben Cook @BenjaminCook
Furthermore, a Google rep responds w/ at best a misleading remark but it's not questioned at all?
Ben Cook @BenjaminCook
Google says "oh no, we don't use that data" & we're just supposed to believe them. Bing doesn't deny it & that's painted as an admission?
Ben Cook @BenjaminCook
And even if Bing is using the data of who clicks on what URL when users use ANY search engine, so what? It gives them a broader base of data
Matt Cutts @mattcutts
BREAKING: Bing cheating, copying Google's results? You have to read this: http://goo.gl/U41pb Please RT!
Chris Heilmann @codepo8
@mattcutts a lot of "if" "maybe" and other things in there. But interesting all the same.
Rasmus Himmelstrup @rasmusgi
Interesting read: Google: Bing Is Cheating, Copying Our Search Results http://selnd.com/g4L6Pm
Esben Rasmussen @EsbenRasmussen
@rasmusgi Hopefully @mattCutts will be able answer to the question: Isn't @Bing just doing what @Google has ben doing all the time?
Danny Sullivan @dannysullivan
@Skitzzo i'd have dutifully asked google, as i did bing -- which, as you can see, didn't deny what google said
Danny Sullivan @dannysullivan
@Skitzzo suffice to say, if it was incorrect, i'd have expect them to say that. read the statement closely. but i'll be talking with more,2
Ben Cook @BenjaminCook
@dannysullivan why no follow up on things like G's claim not to use toolbar data (even though they do)?
Danny Sullivan @dannysullivan
@Skitzzo there's a whole section on that. i even pointed out they weren't right on part.
Matt Cutts @mattcutts
@codepo8 I expect things will become more clear over time. I'm on a panel with Bing later today, and I'll ask them.
Esben Rasmussen @EsbenRasmussen
Heh, short and precise. "Isn't @Bing just doing what @Google has been doing?" RT @mattcutts: @EsbenRasmussen @rasmusgi no.
Ben Cook @BenjaminCook
@dannysullivan I saw you pointed that out, but you didn't make them defend the statement (or at least didn't talk about it in the piece).
Danny Sullivan @dannysullivan
@Skitzzo Q. do you use this. A. No. Q. yeah, but do you really use this? that kind of makes no sense. no is no.
Ben Cook @BenjaminCook
@dannysullivan "Q: do you use it? A: no never. Q: well what about where you admitted using it?" Seems reasonable to me.
Danny Sullivan @dannysullivan
@Skitzzo ah. so after they said no, i went back & did further research & found that. it was late last night, so didn't have a chance to
Danny Sullivan @dannysullivan
@Skitzzo follow up on that. credit for doing some fact checking though, maybe :) -- and I will go back on that
Ben Cook @BenjaminCook
@dannysullivan agreed, credit there. Would be interested in follow up. Prob is, accusations have habit of becoming fact even if corrected.
Ben Cook @BenjaminCook
@dannysullivan this might be a bit conspiracy theorish, but from article I couldn't tell if could prove Bing was copying G & not otherway?
Ben Cook @BenjaminCook
@Dannysullivan would LOVE to hear any follow up done on this being the "first time" Google manually edited results.
