Search engine recommendation

I'm just feed up with this God forsaken search engine, I've put up with this bullshit for far too long. It's time for me to put an end to this. I was think to go for the DuckDuckGo search engine, but due to years of Google alienation, I'am not much aware of other alternatives.
Do you guys have any recommendation?

      Yeah, searx is probably the best of a shit bunch, although it's still nowhere near google in its heyday. Honestly, the "best" solution at this point is probably to learn a foreign language and use naver or yandex or baidu etc.

        >the meta search engine that literally does the search on google or whatever you specify isn't as good as google
        dumb as shit
        >you should use russian or chinese google instead
        why the frick would you even bother posting this? Look up how searx and meta search engines work. It's basically a customizable search proxy.

          99/100 times the recomendation is a meta search engine or one that just uses googles index.
          These kinds of threads are a waste of time.

          If someone wants to do things right: I offer a crawler and a module for parsing search queries. Additionally some paperwork inclouding observations and reference material.
          What I need is simple storage approach with respect to deduplication, URL querring and other things tbd.
          Aditionally working out some of the architecture even better

      you'll never get the old google back. Just learn to deal with it with multiple search engines.

      searx is a decent start. yandex is another alternative. Work your way from there.

      I don't think there's is another early 2000s google outt there.

        My issue with Searx is that it runs into some issues and conflicts unique to its nature as a metasearch engine. For instance, with the rankings, what would usually be at the top on Google or Bing would be on the middle of the page. Sometimes you will get the same url listed multiple times with a slight tweak like adding a # at the end or in a different language.

    Check out these Search Engine websites:
    -https://www.searchenginemap.com/
    -https://searchengine.party/

    DuckDuckGo (archive[dot}ph/fhxZj) is basically majority Bing with very little added from their own crawler. In fact, last time I checked (which was a couple years ago), if you used it without Javascript, it will return results from their index in combination with Yandex. I don't think that's the case anymore after Ukraine. Don't trust their privacy larp (archive[dot}ph/zt4h6). There was GigaBlast which was initially proprietary but imo was poorly ran. Their business model was that you had to pay to add links to their index. The downside was that the search engine itself was archaic, spaghetti code that was barely updated which made their crawler and results lackluster and that was even more apparent when it got open sourced (https://github.com/gigablast/open-source-search-engine). The creator, Matt Wells, always complained it was expensive to maintain and would every once in a while shill on Hacker News or Reddit. Managed to make a deal with Internet Archive (https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/gigablast-to-build-the-biggest-search-engine-300107382.html) which didn't go far. Made deal with Private Internet Access and later with freenode, same owner as PIA, to make private.sh which also didn't go beyond being a redesign. Pretty sure dude just gave up. If you want to escape the Google botnet, use either Mojeek, Brave, Yep or Wiby. Mojeek at least has an independent index but it isn't very big and the results are hit or miss. Brave is probably the best contender to Google. It is mostly their own index with a little Google and works without Javascript. Also CEO is based and hates Globohomo. Has goggles which is a feature to fight against things like bias and censorship. There is a new search engine called Yep.com which is still in its infancy. Created by a large SEO company and maintains its own index. Wiby is good for old or indie web stuff.

    Anyone tried Kagi yet? I use Brave but even that's kinda shit in its own right. Went from being pretty 90s Altavista "what the frick I have to look through shit? All THIS shit!?" to a weird little Google-like that succumbed to SEO gaming from word salad websites.
    I swear at this stage the best search engines are those for Academic journals.

      Academic journals suck because you can't find any real negative information about the covid vax.

      I have been using Kagi for over 2 years now. It's nice. I like blocking Quora bullshit from my searches.

    I switched to Bing years ago. It's totally fine and actually even pays me to use it. No complaints, and better porn video search to boot.

    It's from the french, so it probablt won't work the moment you need it. Never tried it for long, however only due to the moronic address which i always forget. Just found that URL only using ddg. Imagine being so dumb (not me, the creators of it). It's as if it were duckduckgo.com/search or google.com/search.
