All the talk about who has a bigger index than who is interesting, but the point has already been well made that it doesn't actually matter that much who has the bigger index... it's the results that count. Relevancy is King. But of course, that's rather difficult to work out, but the folks over at RustySearch are having a go. Simply type in a query and look at the results, and rank any you feel are relevant or not so relevant. RustySearch takes the results from different search engines - Yahoo, Google, Ask Jeeves and MSN Search and uses this input to work out which engine is best. The link takes you to the current results which has them in the order:
Although there's not a lot to choose between them. Worth taking a look if you're interested in search.
