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...

Bing Launches Linked Pages

Bing Launches Linked Pages

One of the issues that you may have when searching for friends, family or people online is that you will get all sorts of results. Depending on the person’s Internet activities and popularity on the Internet, you may get some, none or a lot of results about that person on the first pages of the search engine you are using. Other factors like the person’s name play a role as well. If you are searching for a popular name, you may have to wade through hundreds of results before...

Scroogle Founder Pulls The Plug, Closes Website

Scroogle Founder Pulls The Plug, Closes Website

Scroogle was one of the sites that came up occasionally here on Ghacks as an alternative to Google Search. It basically provided access to Google Search results through a proxy to protect the privacy of its users. In this regard, it was more of a Google proxy than a search engine. Daniel Brandt, the creator of Scroogle, established the service in April 2003, and it has ever since been available online. Things turned for the worse in recent years when Google started to block – and...

How To Create Sitemaps For Static HTML Websites

How To Create Sitemaps For Static HTML Websites

So called sitemaps are files that contain information about a website’s structure. It is usually not the only information but that should be enough as an explanation for now. Many content management systems, blog platforms and other dynamically generated website scripts come with options to automatically generate, and often submit sitemaps to the big search engines. While a submitted sitemap does not guarantee inclusion in the search engine, it does provide the search engine with...

Google Encrypted Web Search (HTTPS) Moved To New Domain

Google Encrypted Web Search (HTTPS) Moved To New Domain

Google launched an encrypted version of their web search in May (see Google SSL HTTPS Search). HTTPS search was enabled on the main Google.com domain and users simply had to add an s after HTTP in the url to access the encrypted search engine. Encryption increased the privacy of the search engine user by preventing people from intercepting the search terms and results. This did have a consequence though for schools and organizations that relied on filtering techniques to prevent access...

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...

Website Virus Checker URLVoid

Remember Virus Total and No Virus Thanks? The two services allow anyone to upload files to check them in dozens of antivirus engines. That’s very handy considering that no antivirus software solution is yet offering a 100% protection against malicious software and viruses. The developers of No Virus Thanks have created URLVoid which uses the same concept for website urls. Individual security applications like Kaspersky Internet Security or Norton Internet Security and browser add-ons...
