Duckduckgo is a search engine like google, but anonymous. I felt temped to make them some advertising since i found one of my hubs there at 7 place
google haven't indexed me yet, so 1-0 for the duck, the crazy part, i search "save money reducing electricity" which are the keywords that appear in all of my 10 hubs, and one hub only appears, not the more old one, not the more commented one, not the most viewed one, but it's there. As a beginner here i feel proud
Even with this privacy controversy, i think it's very unlikely that a search engine could overthrow google, they are to big, plus gmail, youtube, g+ you name it.
Love-th the DDG. Use them often!

Presently the largest worldwide engine, with control of two outstanding social networks, stock in FB plus mail services, etc etc etc. They are Yandex. covering nearly all of Europe, South America, much of the Middle East and Asia. The only area they lack is the States and Canada. They do index English based URLS plus a massive amount of great features. One such new feature is "Islands".
Kind of cool and something to utilize...

Google's various tweakings of the Panda search algorithm has not given us better quality in search results. Yeah, the changes are devastating to those of us who write original content, but the content that we need is getting even harder to find!I find that the content aggregators, the bane of a...

Alright, this is a very basic question (yes, I know it is, but.....) I thought I understood this but the other night, someone told me that indexing has no affect on page ranking. He went as far as to say that he has purchased page ranking from Google, etc. I have not heard of...
