    This is an interesting article on some major upgrades to BING and a new interface, Axis.

    Read it carefully, there is a flag in there about how to improve your search position ;)

    Yahoo pulls the data for Axis from it’s own index, and only uses Bing when it can’t find what it needs.

    I don’t know anybody who uses Bing. I tried it a couple of times, but the search results were pretty awful.

    Same goes for Axis. I tested in on Chrome but the results were no good, and the graphical layout doesn’t make it any easier to get the website you need as claimed by Yahoo.

    Google offer image previews on iPhones (not sure about android).
    I’m not sure it grabs the attention of web browsers who, in general, are happy with text.

    This teenage made a good App called Summly

    “The Summly app can be used to summarize search content or specific web page”

    I don’t know why it hasn’t been picked up by one of the search engines
