Google Not Better Than Bing or Yahoo

Comparing Google (GOOG), Bing (MSFT) and Yahoo (YHOO) I search for my favourite search term Financial Skeptic. The results are

Google 938,000
Bing 1,210,000
Yahoo 10,300,000 (OK Yahoo explain yourself)

Boolean Search “Financial Skeptic” results
Google 26,000
Bing 2,440,000 (OK Bing explain yourself)
Yahoo 22,500

The top twenty hits all seem to be similar so one cannot conclude that for financial search any search engine is better or worse.
