Bing Smart Search helps consumers find what they need across the webBing Smart Search delivers a new way to search, giving consumers a faster way to find what they need no matter where it lives — whether it's a document on a PC, a photo album in the cloud, an app, or a website. And it does so with a single, intelligently curated, beautifully organized set of results. There's no need to open a browser — Smart Search is ready on the Start page, or anywhere else in Windows 8.1 that a consumer's daily activities take them.

 

Smart Search connects consumers with advertisers who offer the products or services they are looking for when it is relevant and useful in helping to complete a task. Search results are touch-friendly, and web previews let searchers know what they are getting before they click. Plus, Sitelink Extensions, Merchant Ratings and Location Extensions are all integrated into search listings so customers can easily connect with your business.
