Sorry Google!

Recommended Posts

Just too much shifty stuff and censorship going on these days at g€€gle. I'm changing my default search engine to https://duckduckgo.com/

I'm sick of doing a search on some product them being bombarded with junk ads for months afterwards, and if you are daft enough to use gmail it's obvious they are scanning everything to see what you had for breakfast!

One which promises to respect your privacy, and (after a little bit of testing) seems to have little or no bias!

Search engines are an interesting phenomenon. The problem with those that promise keep things private is that they are not quite telling the truth. I'm sure you're aware that there is no such thing as true privacy on the internet these days, even if you use a VPN. The second problem is that businesses are quite happy for information to be harvested, analysed and shared by Google; smaller search engines who do not offer this advantage - and it is an advantage commercially as it helps target the right sort of customer - are of no interest to those with products and services to sell. Bear in mind that 95% of online transactions begin with a search engine, and 95% of those are Google searches. The future is, I'm afraid, Google-led.
