In this blog I want to give you some examples, and to explain you why is Google a good choice, and why it is better to use Google alternatives.
Besides, there are many search engines other than Google, the so called Google alternatives, having so much to offer and they are very useful. So if Google is not your thing, I will present you a list of 6 Search Engines which you can use.
The Best TOP 6 Google Alternatives Search Engines
Yahoo!, which includes features such as a search engine, an e-mail service, a directory, and a lots of other services, began as a simple collection of Yang and Filo’s favourite Web sites. It was first called “Jerry and David’s Guide to the World Wide Web,” but, as the site grew in popularity, it was renamed Yahoo!, an acronym for “Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle.”
Yahoo and Google each use special sets of instructions called algorithms to automatically summarize web content, make assumptions about the meaning of a user’s search and match that search to the most appropriate content possible.
These algorithms are the most important aspect of any search engine and are kept secret. When a user enters a search, the differences in each company’s algorithm can return very different results which makes it a very good Google alternative.
The most important thing I like by bing, and maybe you guys know already, is that Bing is the image search, offering sharper and higher quality images in the results page. Bing was also the first to introduce the ‘infinite scroll’ to evade the need to painfully click through the various pages of image results. Google has since caught onto this ingenious function so Bing no longer has the advantage here.
And the second thing which I love is that Bing gives you free stuff for using Bing. Bing offers a similar reward scheme using a points system. Sure it’s not a technical reason to use Bing, but there’s nothing like a bit of bribery to win people over and it won me too 🙂
The thing that Bing has is Social Media Integration which makes it differentiate from Google. It would have been remiss of Bing not to take advantage of the deals between parent company Microsoft and Facebook and Twitter. With more access to social data, Bing results feature trending news from social media in the news search results.
The thing that Google is doing, it tracks you on more than just their search engine. You may realise they also track you on YouTube, Gmail, Chrome, Android, Gmaps, and all the other services they run. For those, who would love some privacy, at least in their online searches, I would recommend DuckDuckGo.
What you may not realise, though, is Google trackers are actually lurking behind the scenes on approximately 75% of the top million websites. To give you an idea or a sense of how large that is, Facebook is the next closest with approximately 25%. It’s a good bet that any random site you land on the Internet will have a Google tracker hiding on it. Between the two of them, they are truly dominating online advertising, by some measures literally making up 74%+ of all its growth. A key component of how they have managed to do that is through all these hidden trackers.
I really love this one, it’s my favorite, and this is why I let it last! This is the search engine that plants trees. Ecosia is a search engine that donates the bulk of its expendable funds to tree-planting organizations around the globe. Though it is based on Bing, Ecosia anonymizes all user data after holding it for four days (according to Ecosia, this four-day period is for security purposes) and has a written agreement with Microsoft requiring the company to follow the same practice.
And now that I have told you a little story behind some of the Google alternatives search engines, here you can read a more complex and detailed explanation about Google Alternatives – https://cb-sol.de/blog/suchmaschinen-liste/ – German language.
