Search Engine Rap Battle

I remember checking the search engine rank for my first website in a whole bunch of now-dead search engines like Altavista, Excite, Gigablast, Hotbot, Lycos, and a whole bunch of others I’ve probably forgotten. Today, of course, I only bother to check my sites’ rankings in Google, Yahoo, and MSN/Live Search/Bing (I wonder what Microsoft will call their search engine next?).

Now that Yahoo Search is officially dead, replaced by Bing, I thought it would be nice to post a couple of videos about the good ‘ol days of The Big Three: MSN, Yahoo, and Google.

MSN vs. Yahoo

Google vs. Yahoo

MSN vs. Google
