Although Bing, Microsoft’s search engine, does not have the user quota that Google usually has in many markets, we must not lose sight of some of the functions that are coming to it.
In this sense, this same week it expanded its search capabilities through the arrival of the Page Insights feature to its desktop web version, justifying in turn the impossibility of reaching mobile phones due to the “screen size required to correctly display the results”
A useful feature that will help save time
The idea consists of provide a pop-up dashboard highlighting important items, with data, images and other assets, from the search result to which it belongs as a visual summary. To do this, users will be able to display this panel in certain results of searches that have a light bulb icon.
In this way, users will have at a glance the elements they may need from the web in question, being able to verify the suitability of continuing to investigate in the same if the web offers what they are looking for, or go to other results.
If they find what they need in one of the sections of the panel, they will have at their disposal the option «Read more», which will take you directly to the original website with the corresponding information.
In the panel itself they also have the “Explore more” option, which will allow them to see access to other related search results that may be relevant to their searches, allowing them to go even deeper.
Acorde a Microsoft, Page Insights de Bing:
helps you verify that the source is relevant to your needs, helps you catch up at a glance on the main factors you did not know about, and allows you to go directly to the relevant section of the page when you click ‘Read more’ to a specific question.
This release officially arrives after months of testing, among different variations that have been taking place since last June. For now, this feature is only available in major English-speaking markets, although Microsoft already promises its expansion, without specifying a roadmap.
