    I hate google as a company and how it forces small businesses into buying expensive adwords ads just to be seen but as much as it pains me to say this I gotta say Google search results are the best.
    I tried using some alternative search engines today to see how they compare. Bing search results are absolutely terrible and 100x more manipulative than Googles. Just about every shopping query you can think of bing puts amazon and ebay at the top multiple times and then litters the search results full of ads to generate money. Its just a load of crap.
    Duckduckgo search results are even worse than bings. Basically that search engine is just one big affiliate site for amazon. The top of its search results is just one big carousel for amazon products and duckduckgo is really disingenuous and doesn’t even label these results as ads which is against the law. The organic search results themselves are just a pile of garbage..no doubt to drive people into clicking the amazon ads above. I guess even though google is a really greedy company the devil you know is better than the devil you dont know.

    • I agree, I never liked duckduckgo results seemed very CENSORED TO ME with little choice. If you like google results but don’t like google morals and intrusiveness then I suggest you check out startpage.com which basically rips off googles results and is totally private.
