Update on RustySearch

Barry has released some preliminary statistics on his brand-blind test. The results so far are all very close but Yahoo has an ever so slight lead (26.1%), followed by Google (25.6%), Ask Jeeves (24.7%) and MSN Search bringing up the last spot (23.7%). The post on Search Engine Roundtable has a pie chart showing relevancy between the four and a graph of the voting trends. Most people seem to find relevancy a yes or no issue, choosing either 5 (most relevant) or 1 (least relevant) most of the time.

We first discussed the brand blind relevancy test on April 13th and followed up on its release three days ago.
