    Bing Has No Clue Who Matt McGee Is

    March 31, 2014

    I was Binging myself (is that what you’d call it?) over the weekend and discovered that Bing is really FUBAR when it comes to knowing who I am.

    On the bright side, Bing shows a Snapshot result on searches for my name — unlike Google, which doesn’t have a Knowledge Graph result for me. (Probably because I don’t have a Wikipedia page.)

    On the not-bright side, Bing is confusing me with some Matt McGee who’s a construction foreman in Oklahoma City.


    I highlighted the wrong parts of the Snapshot in red. It’s really a mess.

    Over on the left, in the organic web results, the stuff about me is highlighted in green. So at least there’s some stuff that’s correct on this search.

    Bing, fix thy search results, please.
