Olympic Searching – Counting medals

Now that the Olympics are over, I decided it would be time to take a look at how every nation did at the Games. Checking the 3 majors search engines for the word “Olympics”, it appears that Yahoo dropped the ball on this one. Live and Google produce relevant medal count “one boxes”, while Yahoo just gives news. Looks like Live Search did the best out of the 3 search engines on this one and overall for the Olympics:

The NBC-MSN association bore its fruit for Live Search during the Olympics. Final Score: Google 1, Yahoo 2, Live Search 2. Live Search wins by judge's decision.
