Give Google the flick and switch to DuckDuckGo

It really is time to stop using Google as your search engine. You can be reminded of just what a disgusting organisation it is in this story: Google Redefines The Word ‘Fascism’ To Smear Conservatives, Protect Liberal Rioters. They have inserted the words “right wing” into the definition even though Mussolini was a communist who then began the Fascist Party in Italy while the words Nazi, I need hardly point out, is a contraction of National Socialists.

And as a recent reminder to myself, I was looking the other day for the post I had done on Margaret Thatcher as The Greatest Woman of the Twentieth Century. No matter what perms and combs I used at Google, nothing would come up. On DuckDuckGo it was instantaneous and in the first ten hits. It was recommended a while back by some commenter and I have slowly been shifting over. This is how DuckDuckGo describes itself:

Real Privacy. We don’t track you. What you search for is your own business and we’d like to keep it that way. That’s why we don’t collect any personal information and therefore, have none to share.

Community. Our Extended Team. Our search engine is more than just servers and an algorithm. Our community directly contributes to DuckDuckGo. Get involved in changing the future of search.

Smarter Search. Get answers quicker. It’s our goal to get you where you want to go in fewer clicks. We do that through instant answers, themes and !bangs. We have everything you’d expect and a whole lot more.

I do not expect this post to show up in a Google Search.
