The DuckDuckGo Search Engine is Objectively Better Than Google Search

by Antwan Wimberly

21 September, 2019

Dear Google, Just be Honest for ONCE!!!!

I discovered recently (beyond a doubt about 20 mintues ago) that DuckDuckGo’s search results are far purer and more organic than Google’s. Google tries to lure and coerce you into spending money to keep their ad and tracking behemoth fed, while also giving you a false sense of success for using its products (e.g. Advanced Mobile Pages, Google Analytics, Blogspot, YouTube, etc.). There’s no reason my name should drop in rank because I “haven’t published content for X amount of days”. And why in the world would my most relevant website - the very blog you're linked to now be completely omitted from Google’s search results for the past ...like 10 freaking years or whenever I first published content?!?!). This plays right into Google’s favor (reverse psychology). DuckDuckGo on the other hand serves up all the content from by blogs gracefully (the Facebook account that both search engines serve up is obviously not mine but rather a result of a robust implementation as they’re aware that my name has multiple spellings), renders links to GitHub repos I've created (which is extremely relevant), and truthfully as it does not conduct any tracking of any kind no matter how many times any of us search. It also has a nice iPhone app and a great UI. Their company blog is very informative as well and debunks all sorts of privacy myths and misinformation disseminated by the the more malicious minded people of the world (they're becoming less and less relevant by the second).

Conclusion

No wonder they start us engineers out in college writing a program introducing ourselves to the world!!

Thank you DuckDuckGo - Hello World, 2019

-1 for DuckDuckGo 🔎

Search results look tainted due to the rona 😷
Maybe their engineers 👩🏻‍💻 are lethargic 👨🏻‍💻

Amazon & Google doing what they’re paid to do since these online systems run atop their platforms— not particularly impressive, but better than nothing— #monopolycontinues #bigtech

    Watch out! 17 new applications have been withdrawn from the Play Store due to " Joker ", the malware that attacks Android apps and forces Google to strengthen the security of its store. It hurts users through text messages and WAP payments.
