Since the explosion of the search engine industry, many have discussed which search engine has the most relevant results. However, conclusions about this debate may have been made a little clearer yesterday.

As mentioned on WebProNews, Barry Schwartz launched RustySearch.com in order to determine which of the big players in the industry had the most relevant results. In order to accomplish this, RustySearch was designed to "scrape" its results from the popular search engines and allowed users to rate each result on a 1 to 5 basis.

These results, which were compiled from the rankings of 5000 different searches, have been posted on SERoundtable.com and are as follows:
