    Bing Sting

    Hiybbprqag: Did Google catch Bing cheating? - CSMonitor.com

    So Google decided to run what has been termed a "Bing Sting." "We created about 100 'synthetic queries' – queries that you would never expect a user to type, such as [hiybbprqag]," Singhal wrote on the official Google blog. "As a one-time experiment, for each synthetic query we inserted as Google’s top result a unique (real) webpage which had nothing to do with the query."

    Basically, what its saying is that rather than use their normal algorithm for determining what a search of "akdfthlhk" would bring up, they forced it to bring up a legitimate website (such as espn.com).

    Then, if they typed the same thing into Bing and got the same result, it would be good evidence that Bing was copying google.

    Here is a good article (opinion) describing it.

    I hadn't heard of Blekko. That's a nice concept, I could see it being useful.
