Scroogled Ad from Bing

Posted December 10th, 2012 by Samir

Here’s an interesting attack ad on Google Shopping produced by Bing (UPDATE: make sure to include the last ‘d’ if you’re typing in the address!):

We found ourselves waiting for the “I’m XXX and I approved this message” clip at the end. We agree Google Shopping is corrupt, but Bing Shopping has its own problems. Compare our results:

Bing has more listings but we would never buy anything from most of the stores listed. Many of the prices are also wrong or better prices are available through other links. Look at Adorama, OfficeDepot, Amazon, Buydig, or B&H for starters. Bing has a lot of work to do to before they catch up with Bountii!
