Other Search Engines

 

Metasearch engines search across multiple platforms, and can sometime cull the best results the web has to offer. Try:

 

  • Yippy queries several top search engines, combines the results, and groups similar results together into groups or clusters.

And these search engines that are NOT Google might provide you with just the different kind of result you didn't know you were looking for!

  • Bing is the nearest competitor to Google. A search engine owned and operated by Microsoft, Bing returns well-organized and image-rich results.

 

  • DuckDuckGo does not track your searches, so it protects your privacy AND returns results outside of your personal "filter bubble."

 

  • The Internet Archive is a digital library and also provides access to the Wayback Machine which can show you what a webpage looked like in the past! The Wayback Machine will also allow you to save a webpage as it exists in any moment.

 

  • WolframAlpha is a "computational knowledge engine" rather than a search engine, and responds to search terms with data instead of webpages.
