The problem with Google is very simple. They put on top of the search
results what they wish. If you own a site and you stick to "their SEO
rules" your pages might appear on top of the list but, let's say you
don't pay Google's AdWords then your site is placed at the bottom or
simply ignored in the search results.
I tried this on Facebook but no one replied, what with the Facebook
algorithms probably no one saw it.
In light of multiple recent reports about Google regarding search
results rankings and YouTube funding, I am looking for an alternative
search engine. I have been test-driving Duck Duck Go for 2 weeks now and
I find it is pretty weak - it returned 3 relevant results when I was
looking for the Better Privacy AddOn earlier this week whereas Google
returned a dozen (at least.) Also, and please correct me if I am wrong,
but I think what Duck Duck Go and IxQuick do is to get their search
results from Google and show them in a different order - I'm not exactly
Google-Free if that is what they do.
So which search engine do you guys use? Everyone's on Google?
Thank you much.
Rule exception: Big names are on top, particularly if they love Google.
That's the way Google's dictatorship works. Next step is https. If the
site use http their pages will be banned.
Now, regarding other search engines. Unfortunately most of them use
Google results, but if you search: "search engines alternatives", you
will get a bunch of them.
