DuckDuckGo Traffic Still Climbing Like Crazy

DuckDuckGo Traffic Still Climbing Like Crazy

I have been using the DuckDuckGo search engine for some time now and have to say that I’m more than happy with the results it provides. For the majority of searches, it provides me with the information I need. And if it does not come up with a valuable result, I add !g to the search phrase to redirect the search to Google (see How To Improve Your DuckDuckGo Search Experience for additional tips and shortcuts).I also noticed that the search engine was really starting to take off traffic...

Google Hiding Search Results Pages

Google Hiding Search Results Pages

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); A few months ago, when you would have asked me why you are only seeing one page of results in Google Search, I would have told you that this is because you have searched for an exotic term that does not yield more than a handful of results. Today however I witnessed for the first time that Google seems to bey experimenting with their search results listings (again), by artificially limited the results to the first page. What happens?...

Google: Apple is not our main competitor

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); In an interview with the Wall Street Journal’s Alan Murray, the CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt, discussed how and who Google now needs to compete against and it’s clear that the foundation of the company, search, is still its main focus going forward.

Another Google Search Change, That’s So-So

Another Google Search Change, That’s So-So

Google Search has seen lots of changes in the past years, but none were as drastic as the changes introduced over the course of the last year. Even if you blend out all the search experiments like instantly updating search results that are only visible to a minority of users, you are left with a few good additions, like encrypted search, and lots of bad ones like the search fade in interface. Search becomes polluted with ads and additional options that most users do not want or seem to...

What Bing Search Does And Could Do Better

What Bing Search Does And Could Do Better

I switched to Bing recently and had my fair share of experience with Microsoft’s search engine. The main reason for switching was a deterioration of quality results in Google Search. It began in May and has not changed since then. That, and the noise that has been added to search result pages over the past year. It happens that ads dominate the results in Google (and I count links to other Google products as ads as well). Bing on the other hand does many things better and a few things...

Google Will Move Https Search To New Domain

Google Will Move Https Search To New Domain

The introduction of encrypted search at https://www.google.com/ a month ago has increased the privacy of search engine visitors by preventing people from intercepting search terms and results. Encrypting all communication between the client’s computer and Google Search had a few side effects though. It was for one not possible to use all Google services. Google Image search was for instance not available for users who used the https version of Google. Organizations, companies and...

How To Change The Firefox Address Bar Search Provider

How To Change The Firefox Address Bar Search Provider

The default address bar search engine in the Firefox web browser is Google Search. This means that any search phrase that the user enters directly into the Firefox address bar gets send to Google Search which returns either a direct hit or a search results page. Some Internet users might prefer to have a different search engine as the default in Firefox. This can be done easily in the configuration of Firefox. To do that type about:config in the Firefox address bar. First time users need...

Openbook Is A Public Facebook Updates Search Engine

Openbook Is A Public Facebook Updates Search Engine

Openbook is a search engine that can be used by anyone to search Facebook Updates. The recent Facebook Search api changes have made the search engine possible. The goal of the Facebook Updates search engine on the other hand is to inform Facebook users about the underlying privacy risks of this new search feature. They demonstrate the privacy risk by suggesting to search for terms such as “cheated test”, “rectal exam”, “HIV test”, “lost virginity”...

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

Spokeo is the new people search engine that’s freaking users out, because when you “spokeo” yourself there’s a good chance you’ll find your home address, phone number, interests, gender, occupation, wealth level, marital status, photos, and more. The search engine compiles information from public records and public social media network pages to put together a pretty complete profile of individuals. My local news station ran a piece on Spokeo and profiled...
