What search engines do you use?

Google censors, and i am sure Yahoo, MSN, and the other major ones are monitored, altered, hacked, etc with enough frequency to scare me off.

So, how do we find one that is worth using? That works for us, instead of against us?

Er, I Just use Google and Yahoo, though Yahoo more, but Google in images since
Yahoo does'nt return results for some things while Google will.

I really don't think either really censor anything for western markets, though they
do in places like PRChina.

I love Yahoo as a search engine, I dont care if it is monitored. You would be a fool to type on any search engine something you could get in trouble for anyway. There's just something bout google I dont like. And yahoo has great email service so I stay faithful.

I find the Briggs & Stratton engine to be the most reliable.
Even in very moist conditions you can get them to start by just cleaning the plug, and giving the simple carb. a shot of Quick Start.

The British build a Seagull engine, it's a single stroke.
One piston and one plug is the most basic you can go, but you won't get a lot of speed out of it.
Good for if you're just trolling with a line in the water, and it's a nice relaxing way to fish. You get a nice putt-putt-putt on a single piston.



Every other engine will track everything you do, keep track of what you search for, and profile your activity.


Tell Google to screw off, then go fishing and don't worry about it.





I think the point I wanted to make was that the smaller the engine is, the more reliable it is for you.

Some little time after I started using the Internet there was a new search engine called Altavista. It was very good, but it could not compete with a newer one called Google, so they had to stop using the feature that I liked the most, the "Near" keyword, probably because it was slowing their engine.

I use mostly Google, although I hate it, just because it's the one who has most pages indexed. I hate the fact that many of the results do not have the word searched for, but the fact the the word it's in the page name or in a link to that page makes that count as a hit, just click the "cached" link instead of the page link to see if the words you are looking for really exist on the page.

I also use AllTheWeb (they use the Yahoo! index), who has a good image and video search.

Blah...just use Google or Yahoo. I prefer Yahoo myself.


Just don't search anything you wouldn't want people knowing you searched and you'll be fine.

And isn't that the point?

I am not talking something like porn or terror. But, i do like to know that no matter what i search is discreet.

You know what would be nice? A search engine that could work as a stand alone on your PC. It could "grab" registries from all the major engines and provide you a detailed list that isn't leaving a footprint on a server somewhere for Cheney and his cronies to whip up some reason to waterboard me (ok, so that was a bit dramatic... and the clown just makes me laugh).

I think people worry too much about being monitored. How many millions upon millions of people surf the web every day? How many of them are putting in stupid search requests, and keywords that are suspicious?

How many bureaucrats are there to go through these millions of pieces of information?

Needle in a haystack, seriously. Unless you're actually up to no good and they have you in their sights on some prior suspicion or other, how are they going to track you, amongst all the other millions of needles?

Data parsing makes finding a needle in a haystack as simple as an autofilter, possibly a cross reference/vlookup/matchcase type of reference, or just putting in a sniffer to identify instances of verbage, timeframes, and ID.

I would prefer to make it a needle in a needle stack.

I got nothing to be worried about, i don't think...but since i do poke around in LANL and NASA archives perhaps i should be more concerned.
