Google comments that Bing copies Google Search Results. Do you believe on it?

As we see it, this experiment confirms our suspicion that Bing is using some combination of:
  • Internet Explorer 8, which can send data to Microsoft via its Suggested Sites feature
  • the Bing Toolbar, which can send data via Microsoft’s Customer Experience Improvement Program
or possibly some other means to send data to Bing on what people search for on Google and the Google search results they click.

It could be that Bing is smart enough to crawl those pages as well.

What do you think?

I don't think so that Bing has been using the Google results. But it is very strange after seeing in that blog.

Yes , according to the link below:
http://googleblog.blogspot.in/2011/0...le-search.html
But when I check the results manually, they differ for all my websites.

Note:Please place ".html" at the end of the link, I am not able to post the url, so tried it this way.

Yeah, But when you surf for any keyword for "eg. Web Design In India" in both Search engines, the results are entirely different.
So its still a "No" from my side.

Searching for those terms would not fetch you similar results but for some odd terms you can clearly see.
