10 Search Engine alternatives to Google

18 Comments

  1. You can never be sure that your search information isn’t stored and analyzed, but it’s better to have some protection than no protection at all. If you are serious about your anonymity and privacy you should use many tools and methods to protect them. This means using an anonymizing network such as Tor or I2P, using proxies etc. So we cannot be 100% sure you are not being tracked by the search engines we mentioned above but they should at least give you better privacy than other major search engines such as Google and Bing.

  2. I work for a federal government agency that recently launched a new website. In the process of doing so, we learned that we cannot use Google as our search engine because Google would require us to put their logo and perhaps even the phrase “Powered by Google” next to the keyword search box. If we did this, it would be tantamount to the government endorsing or advertising a commercial vendor over other commercial vendors and their products — a very basic no-no.

    Unfortunately, it appears to me that all search engine providers have these same requirements. As an example, if you look at the keyword search box on this page, it says, “Search powered by Lijit.” Further, these requirements may actually be based on copyright law; if you don’t protect your own product copyright by saying the intellectual property is yours, you may just lose the copy right.

    Can anyone advise me on how to get around this issue? Thank you for any help you can provide.

  3. This has been the best post that I’ve seen on this subject so far. I was looking for alternatives to Google because of privacy concerns and I started out looking for alternative browsers. Most are ‘powered by’ or ‘assisted by’ Google like its some pimp with a stable of ho’s. As for search engines why limit yourself to just one. I’ve bookmarked a large list now and I’m going to share the love around. I’m going to be the pimp.

  4. you have analysed , classified, categorized and added the search engines list accurately. Nice posting

  5. I don’t think so any other search engine is as good as Google. I am using it since I have started using internet. And from that time to now I have never liked anyone else as better one for me is always Google..

  6. Same here Dude.. Google is itself world’s best search engine. i can’t compare it with any one else.. Most of these alternatives I have already used, and at last Google is much better experience…

    I believe other website owners need to take this website as an model, quite clean and excellent user pleasant pattern

  9. I don’t use it, although I have some 50 search-plugins, some homemade, depending on what I search or sites, I would’ve chosen Yahoo over Ask.
