Bing vs. Google: a small comparison

Bing vs. Google
This is a small comparison between Google and Microsoft's new search engine Bing. I tried to compare most used features for web search and results quality. Quality of image and video search like common services would be the point of next article.

Google's goal is simplicity and experience. Google's huge stats make available to find relation between different search terms. Bing's goal is Curiosity. People want to see what can a Google-competitor search engine do.

Fix Google Adsense Search and Drupal Conflict

Google Adsense internal search code does not work with Drupal sites normally. The reason is $_GET[q] conflict between both services. $_GET[q] means "current page" for Drupal and "search query" for Google. We can fix it with two easy steps.

Step 1:
Create a custom page like "websearch" etc under Drupal and add Adsense Code for results page.

Step 2:
Add this code at the top of your Drupal's index.php:

// Fix Drupal-Adsense conflict
$_GET[q] = ($_GET['cx']) ? "websearch" : $_GET[q] ;

How can dragonballzrpgonline.com get pageRank 10?

I saw the list of websites with PR 10. One of them is very unusual: dragonballzrpgonline.com

And it is not a website anymore it is just a parked domain on register.com.

How can such a domain get Pagerank 10?

As Google updated its alghoritm to "Panda", it shouldnt come to such strange results.
