In the spirit of Comic-Con 2014, we here at SEO Inc. thought it would be fun to take a deeper look into our favorite search engines. Apart, they are all strong, but together they make up the unstoppable Search Engine Adventure Squad.
Google: The Ultimate Ranker
Superpower: Google can make or break any website with a single penalty. Webpages new and old fear Google’s super secretive algorithm gun, which can throw rankings into chaos as soon as it’s fired.
Arch-nemesis: The evil Black Hat. Nothing makes Google angrier than this dark creature.
Bing: The Visual Victor
Superpower: Hypnotizing users by providing SERPs that are too visually attractive to turn away from. Bing is a smooth operator when it comes to integrating social media into search results, and he never fails to draw you in with his spellbinding presentation.
Arch-nemesis: Google. Keep your friends close but your enemies closer. Bing may appear to be working alongside Google, but don’t be fooled. Bing is just waiting for the day to take down the search engine giant.
Yahoo: The Old School Super Chick
Superpower: Yahoo has been fighting search crime long before the guys joined in on the fun, but she isn’t afraid to be a team player. If Yahoo ranks you, you better bet that Google will use that information.
Arch-nemesis: The Future. Like all search engine greats, Time can be the hardest enemy to defeat.
