As @Dez has pointed out, it is due to the Autofill/AutoComplete feature that browsers (not just Chrome; although it may not be activated by default) implement to make filling forms easy.

As suggested by @Zedinc, I have added the following rule to my user stylesheet: .tweet-translation { display: none !important; } This hides the “translations” completely. The translations are loaded via an XHR (AJAX) request to https://twitter.com/i/translations/show.json?dest=en&id=TWEET_ID I blocked this URL, but for no obvious reasons my ...

You can take a look at Bing's Search Worldwide page. US-English page is here.

To hide results of any kind just use the — (minus, dash, etc.) operator. Examples: New York -yankees The above will display results for 'New York' but exclude the 'yankees' keyword. Disney Characters -disney.go.com The above will display results for 'Disney Characters' while also removing results that have the 'disney.go.com' domain name.

Unfortunately, there is no way to turn off these translations. The translations are shown when your interface language is different from the language Twitter thinks the tweet is written in (and Bing Translator supports the language pair). You can always use a Greasemonkey script or similar to hide them, but there aren't any settings to disabling them on ...

The problem is in the market parameter. See the Bing API 2.0 documentation: The market parameter is optional. If the parameter is not specified, the API will attempts to determine an applicable market through the use of logic such as the IP address of the request, cookies. and other elements. Compare two results for the same query using different ...

my search terms site:mysite.com OR site:othersite.com Google and Blekko don’t need the OR, Bing does.

In Google, "Search settings", "SafeSearch Filtering", setting your search filter to 'strict' will return you pretty good safe results. In Bing, under "Preferences", use the "disable filtering" dialog. It allows to display parental hits. See bing.com/settings.aspx.

It's hard to give an answer in layman's terms because the details of the formulae used are secret. This means that while people can make educated guesses, they might well be wrong in detail. There are various things that govern the process. The two most obvious that spring to mind are: Incoming links - the more sites that link to yours mean that yours is ...

Bing has used to have a similar service: Bing XRank Unfortunately, as of October 2010, Bing XRank has been shut down.

Most of these features aren't exactly hidden, but about.com has a Bing cheatsheet. Some notable ones: Add prefer: to a keyword to place more importance on results having it. Use brackets to specify more complicated conditions: malware or (virus and computer) Add intitle: to a keyword to require results to have a word in the title.

Looks as if it has been removed officially.. Check out this article from CNET. Along with that is this blog from Bing's Blog.

I've figured it out, seems I was just searching for the wrong keywords. From the documentation I was able to add a point to the collections editor as follows: http://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=53.0210235~-1.48398532&lvl=16&dir=0&sty=c&sp=point.53.0210235_-1.48398532_You%20are%20here

I add -site:blockeddomain.com after my search items. how to paint barn -site:ehow.com -site:experts-exchange.com -site:ebay.com -site:dotnetspark.com -site:go4sharepoint.com -site:wikihow.com -site:howstuffworks.com In this example I have added my current ignore list. To make it easy for day-to-day use, I use a text expander to enter all the domains that ...

There is a chance that it's related to the bing app that is on a Windows 8 computer. I've noticed several times that when using bing on a Windows 8 device that is suggests using the app. Although I haven't seen that particular link.

When I tried it like this on Bing, I was able to see the keyword @test in a lot of the results though not all results - "[@test]"

It's working fine for me; when I type bing singer Bing Crosby results fill the page, but bing singer NOT crosby omits the Bing Crosby pages. You could also try bing singer -crosby instead of using NOT. Note that using NOT or - does not prevent the keyword from showing up in the related searches.

Look to Google Trends. For example, here is the trend page for the search iraq war. The bottom of the page shows similar queries and rankings. At the top of the page, you can download a csv of more complete statistics (under the gear icon).

Blekko's "webgrep" feature does exactly this. https://blekko.com/webgrep Another alternative is to use CommonCrawl's dataset, which costs ~ $70 in AWS time to grep through once.

It is possible that the results would eventually be consistent. Many search engines actually balance requests across many server-farms and each server might give subtly different answers to any other. Partly this is just load balancing, but it is also by design as it reduces predictability of search position. As pages "settle" into a ranking, the results ...

Quotations do search by exact phrase. See the Bing documentation Search effectively that states: Search for exact phrases by placing the search words within quotation marks. For example, "short evergreen tree." Check that you don't have unusual settings or filters in your Bing settings.

I found it there is an FAQ at Zvents proper (not http://bing.zvents.com). How do I change my password? After you log in, click on the 'MyZvents' link displayed in the top right corner of any page. You can change your password by clicking on the 'Update Your Profile' link. Or, just go here: http://www.zvents.com/user/edit

Unless I'm misunderstanding the blog they are not doing away with the feature. I seem to recall map view menu having the following items: Satellite - old fuzzy satellite images Bird's Eye - new, closer, higher resolution satellite images Aerial - beautiful images taken by airplane. Not all areas included Aerial and some only included a single pass by ...
