Microsoft launched its Bing Editors Picks on Monday, an easy and quick way to find some of the best Internet sites.
Bing’s editors will hand pick selected sites and bring them to Bing search results to show off a collection of relevant sites that Microsoft’s editorial experts believe will be useful to users. “The job of Bing editors is to enhance your experience on Bing,” says Kristen Kennedy, managing editor of Bing’s editorial team. “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.”
Bing’s Editors’ Picks will be made available on a per search term basis. Not every term will have editorial picks attached but Microsoft says it has seen a lot of interest in seasonal topics like Thanksgiving recipes and crafts. Bing has put together a collection of sites dedicated to Thanksgiving as part of that. “Today, we’re featuring more than 140 topics, from college prep sites to party planning, from food blogs wine basics,” said Kennedy in a blog post on Monday. ”We’ll continue to add topics as we find great sites and learn more about what you’re looking for.”
