10 Super Bing Search Tips

Go Ahead, Ask Anything

Bing partners with Wolfram Alpha, a computational search engine that can handle specific, direct questions such as “When is Valentine’s Day 2012?” or “What is the GDP of the United States?”

Add Emphasis to Search Queries

Type “prefer:” then your query to give a word extra weight in your search.

Search for Pages That Contain Specific File Types

Use the search operator “contains:” to look for a website that has particular files on it, such as MP3, PDF, JPG, PPT or GIF.

Play Songs From Bing

Bing a song and click one of the top links to play it in full (one time only) via Zune.net.

Book Your Next Trip

Bing partners with Expedia, Travelocity, Hotels.com, Hotwire, and Priceline for airfare and hotel deals (www.bing.com/travel). That means you can search all of the above for one-way, round-trip or multi-city flights and hotel stays anywhere in the world. Plus, Bing’s FareCast tool can predict trends in flight pricing. It can tell you when to wait for a fare drop and when tickets are prime for purchasing.
