There are many different advanced and alternative search engines that you can use instead of the usual ones such as Google and Yahoo. DuckDuckGo is a search engine that doesn’t track your history and doesn’t personalize your searches. This is good for users who are worried about their privacy. Gigablast is an open source search engine that has a very old school look and returns results quickly. Finally, Ecosia is a search engine that helps plant trees every time you use their search engine.
- Currently, data shows that the top three search engines are Google, Bing and Baidu. However, that is not even close to an exhaustive list of available engines.
- For those that would appreciate a bit more privacy when searching there’s DuckDuckGo.
- DuckDuckGo’s special hook in the search engine world is that it promises users it will not personalize searches or results.
“If you want results from the top three search engines, but don’t want to go to them individually, try Dogpile. Its results are pulled from the top three search engines “without all the mess.””
