At Catster’s World Headquarters, we’re constantly faced with choosing fantastic feline photos to complement our stories. As we recently told you, the folks at Bing challenged our writers and editors to take the Bing It On challenge to find the best cat images on the Internet. We accepted the challenge and found that Bing beat Google in four of five of our searches.
Now we’re challenging you, our delightful Catster readers, to pounce over to BingItOn.com and join the over 10 million people who have already tried it. You’ve logged enough hours eyeballing adorable and funny cat photos, right? So you’re definitely an expert at identifying quality kitty pics!
As if looking at cute cat images isn’t enough of a reward for taking the challenge, we’re giving away a $250 VISA gift card to one lucky participant!* (You can always donate it to your favorite rescue if you don’t want to hoard your winnings to yourself.)
But before we get started, let’s review how BingItOn.com works. After accessing the site, type the search words in the bar at the top of the page. Don’t worry, later in this post we’ll give you the search words we’d like you to use for the challenge.
Using one of the last post’s examples, let’s say we wanted to look for “cutest kittens.” Remember, the results are unmarked — we have no idea which is Bing and which is Google.
After examining the results, we preferred the images on the left, so we clicked on the box above the left search engine, which we later discovered was Bing.
The kitten sleeping on the pink satin nailed it — and look at those teeny paws!
