Google 411 adds new function and Bing 411 competes –Check them out!

By
Real Estate Agent with Eau Claire Realty, Inc.

Google recently added a new feature to their 411 service that tells you what intersection a business is on. Of course that’s really cool if you are on the go with a mobile phone and need directions. This feature is pretty cool and will hopefully lead more people to businesses easier than ever.

Bing a new search engine from Microsoft just released their own 411 service to directly compete with Google’s. I have mixed feelings about Bing in general (I think it’s mostly useless when compared to Google but hey competition is good right?) but Bing seems to have some cool stuff like “local business listings, as well as local traffic, weather, and movie listings”

Check out the links for more information on both of these 411 services. While you are at it stop paying for expensive 411 when you can use either of these services for free!

yup. I am going to add a larger post with quite a few references to Bing later. Or I guess I could do it now. There is a lot of more hidden features.

Shane - I had just heard about Google 411 a few days ago from another posting but had not yet heard of Bing 411.  Thanks!

My head is spinning...maybe I'll google the bing, then add it all to my Facebook, follow on Twitter and talk about it all on Linked in.  Does anyone else out there have no time left to sell Real Estate?
