How a small fry can dominate Google

At some point, many small businesses feel stuck – stuck behind a larger competitor with resources that far outstrips their own. All is not lost though because, according to Fiona Mackenzie, these businesses are prime candidates to turn to the Internet which offers a level playing field and where a small one-man band can be bigger than Goliath.

Compare Google and Bing search results on one page

Here's a simple mashup/hack on the concept of comparing search results between Google and Bing. Type your search query in the top box and the results in Google and Bing appear below in split-screen.
