Different Types of Search Engines


Google Search Engine is the world's best search engine, and is also one of Google's most popular products. Google acquired nearly 70 per cent of the Search Engine market. The tech giant is always evolving and seeking to improve the algorithm for the search engine in order to give the end-user the best results. Though Google continues to be the largest search engine, youTube is now available in 2015


Yahoo & Bing challenge each other more than Apple. A recent netmarketshare.com report tells us that Yahoo has a 7.68 per cent market share.

DuckDuckGo is a popular search engine known for safeguarding users privacy. We are quite transparent about who we use to produce search results unlike Ask.com; they have collaborated with Yahoo, Bing and Yummly.

Ask.com was founded in 1995, before known as Ask Jeeves. Their key concept was to have search results based on a web interface with simple question + response. It is a forum of questions and answers where you can get the answers to your question and it incorporates a large amount of database data to answer your question.The findings will not be as recent as those you get in Google, Bing and Yahoo because of this reliance on historical and active user contributions. They've tried to counter where their tools don't have the response that a third-party search engine is taking support. Ironically they're not saying who it is.
