Looking for travel tips or great food blogs? Or, maybe you need to know the best place to get advice on party planning.
We all start with search to find answers to these questions, but with so many websites out there, knowing which ones are worth your time can be challenging.
That’s why we’re launching Bing Editors’ Picks. Editors’ Picks were designed to enhance Bing results by bringing editorially selected sites to your search experience. Our goal, whether delivered by algorithm or by editors, is to help you find what you’re looking for faster and to get stuff done.
Editors’ Picks are small collections of relevant sites that our online editorial experts think will be useful to you, but may not always make it to the top of the search results page.
How we choose sites
The job of Bing editors is to enhance your experience on Bing. For example, when we know you’re looking for something really specific — like “How to use a semicolon” or “Free clip art”— we’ll provide a list of editorially selected sites on that specific topic (in addition to our algorithmic results) to help you find what you’re looking for faster.
We see lots of interest in seasonal topics, like Thanksgiving recipes and crafts, so we’ve put together a collection of sites dedicated to that topic.
How to find Editors’ Picks
Simply start a search as you normally would anywhere on Bing. If Editors’ Picks are available for your search terms, you may see an Editors’ Picks tab appear in the top rail or an instant answer (shown below) in the search results. Clicking on the tab or answer will bring you to a page that includes all the sites we’ve selected for that topic (as seen in the previous image). Additionally, you can visit Bing.com/editors-picks to find the full list of topics and browse for other interesting content.
Today, we’re featuring more than 140 topics, from college prep sites to party planning, from food blogs to wine basics. And, we’ll continue to add topics as we find great sites and learn more about what you’re looking for.
If we missed your favorite site or you want to suggest a new topic for Editors’ Picks, let us know. As always, we welcome your feedback.
