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.
