"Bing It On" search challenge returns with prizes

Microsoft announced Monday on its Search Blog that its "Bing It On" search challenge has returned, this time with the chance to win Microsoft prizes or a chance to win a $10,000 grand prize trip to anywhere in the United States.

The grand prize includes airfare, hotel and spending money for two people to anywhere in the U.S., while four first prize winners will win a "Microsoft box of awesome," which includes a Windows 8 PC or tablet, Xbox 360 with Kinect, Windows Phone 8 and more. All you have to do to enter is perform five searches on the Bing It On search challenge website, choosing which results you like better for each search. After making five searches and comparisons, your results will be shown and the sweepstakes entry form will be available.

The Bing It On challenge, as you'll recall, was originally launched in September 2012 to increase awareness of Microsoft's search engine. Microsoft claims that people chose Bing over Google nearly 2:1 in blind comparison tests, and the challenge is clearly designed to convince more people that Bing is a worthy alternative to the ubiquitous Google.

The full sweepstakes rules are available at this page.

"GOOGLE WON 5 ROUNDS *"

...Lol.
Kind of backfired on them for me. I just preferred the results returned and how they looked presented and fairly chose. I honestly don't like Bing, but I suppose this just proves why.

It's OK Microsoft, I still chose you in the phone department, I hope we can still be friends.

You need to choice the results that are the best, not the one you recognize Googles CSS in....

Pretty sad when I have to quote myself, but there you go.
