The OTHER search engines.

The other search engines - Title.

Wait, there’s more than Google?

Yes, there’s Bing. Just saved you from going to a large tech site and thumbing through 5-10 pages of ad-sponsor hell while they divide up the list to 10 pages in a desperate attempt to improve clicks. You’re welcome.

Seriously; We can’t tell you how many times we’ve seen the article “Top 10 Search Engines” from countless bloggers only to find out that if you are in an English-speaking country. You pretty much have different flavors of Google dominating %80 of the market (Duckduckgo, Presearch, SearX, AskJeeves, and the list goes on where they mindlessly accept either a Google or Microsoft aggregate instead of doing the hard work themselves.) Beyond that, there isĀ  Microsoft Bing with their %8 and finally, Yahoo is still hanging in there with their %2 of total internet searches. Where do these percentiles come from? Like other bloggers, we pulled those percentiles out of thin air!

But it sure as hell feels that way!

Presearch – a search engine review.

Attention.

We have no idea why bots are posting my article all over social networks. We did not pay them. This article is just our hot-take and we encourage viewers to do their own research. If some robot keeps slamming this article in your timeline. Please tell them to stop. To the programmer of these bots. Please stop. Thank you!

Presearch engine – The review!

We bring some different news as well as to offer a possible resolution to our previous posting about the “Google/YouTube Monopoly” as we pointed out a few blogs back. There is a new search engine in town that is called Presearch. This search engine unlike others such as DuckDuckGo is instead of it being a privately run organization that profits off of the baseline search keywords and advertisement revenue all surround their blockchain. Which they claim is decentralized searching but is still privately run and profits of your searches through advertisers! Presearch actually rewards you back by giving out its own cryptocurrency known as “PRE” which gives off the vibe of fake Microsoft Bing Currency except they give off the hope of “cashing out for real money!”

The Dark-Web: Hidden Wiki Edition!

The Hidden Wiki – Now with V3 onion goodness!

For anyone who has read articles in the past, this should come as no surprise of us reviewing a service such as the Hidden Wiki as they are on the “Spooky scary Dank-Web!”.

However, know that we are big fans of the Dark-Web services. In the age of “Big Tech” attempting to delegitimize the mass of the Clear-Net as a whole in taking unique websites and burying them in an SEO-hellscape. The dark web to us is a fresh start. Almost a reset button to the earlier years of the internet. Where concepts like “Web-Rings” would pass you the reader along to like-minded websites. The dark-web by its very design cannot be tracked and cataloged by major corporations (At least not yet!) This means that the Dark-Web for those who want to be vocal about their services can post their links to people who may not want to be tracked on their day-to-day usage of their computers.

Video web crawlers and the Google Monopoly over them.

YouTube Monopoly Title

Happy 2021 – Web crawling only gives you YouTube first, last, and always.

Back in 2016, we made an article about asking YouTube “Where is the fair use?” which was a slogan that the Nostalgia Critic was behind as parodies and criticism of film and literature is a form of free speech. Despite all of the Drama-Lama action that his agent “Channel Awesome” happened which is beyond the scope of this article. The statement was a valid question to ask YouTube. To the point where we even got hit with a copyright strike over a song “William Tell” which is a classical music song that falls underneath the category of public domain.
