Recently, however, I've noticed an unpleasant change. The top of the page says that it is now searching Yahoo, MSN, and Ask (note that Google is nowhere to be seen) and the results are showing one sponsored link after another, with no clear delineation between links that advertisers are paying to have and natural search results. Instead, you have to look carefully to see the faint "Sponsored By..." text near the links. I like to use sponsored links sometimes, but I always want to be able to easily make the distinction. Google separates the sponsored links, but Blingo is now showing them peppered through the regular results.
I like the idea of aggregating results from several different search sources, but so far, the results have been that it's more difficult to find the information I'm looking for, instead of returning more useful results. I've started going to Google more often, instead of relying on Blingo for the lion's share of my searches. Have any of you found the new Blingo search to be more difficult to use?
