Cyrius comment on Reddit regarding the difference between Microsoft sites and Google sites

The biggest difference I've noticed between Microsoft sites and Google sites is that Microsoft seems to want their users to spend as much time as possible on their pages.
Google by contrast seems to want the opposite. Get the user's search results and then send them on their way.
To possibly refine the thought: both Microsoft and Google want people to spend time on their sites. Microsoft tries to get people to spend time on their site by giving them reasons to not leave. Google tries to get people to spend time on their site by giving them reasons to come back.
