Now, instead of gathering crowds to pressure the reigning search giant, Bing has released the Scroogled Google vs. Bing ad in an attempt to expose Google’s search ranking methods, calling it an “unfair ‘pay-to-rank’” system. Microsoft’s search engine’s jab at Google, stating that the rankings are not based on relevance but by how much companies are willing to pay to boost their positions.
