Top 10 Search Engines On The Internet

Without search engines, it would be very difficult for internet users to navigate on the internet. “Sir” Tim Berners-Lee had invented how to connect the pages around the world but it was search engines that really connected the users inside the circle.

Here we look at ten most successful and most sophisticated search engines around in the internet.

10. Blekko


Features the possibility to use slashtags to restrict searched sites to various topics. Offers public site statistics for webmasters.

Blekko is a consumer facing search engine focused on delivering high quality, relevant, spam-free results. It believes search should be open, transparent and collaborative. For this reason it combines traditional algorithmic search with the expertise of its users and partners to eliminate spam and deliver results from only the most reputable, best quality sites. This combination creates a highly differentiated editorial search experience that is fundamentally changing search and content discovery online.

9. DuckDuckGo

Provides a clean interface together with a no-tracking privacy policy. Offers keyboard shortcuts to navigate and zero-click information sources displayed in the search results.

DuckDuckGo appears to be a truly viable alternative to Google’s increasingly abrasive and intrusive search platform. DuckDuckGo claims that it does not track or “bubble” you– and explains its methodology very convincingly at links from its portal page.
