How do you search for information on the interwebs? If you’re like most of us, you use Google. The company’s command over the search environment is expansive, profitable, and somewhat dangerous for users.
Google profits from your searches by gathering information from your online activities, coupling that information with anything else available (how much is available from many sources will scare you) and the pushes adverting into your face to get you to try different products, change your political views, and more.
Dangerous? Yes. Is there a better search? Yes?
I’ll keep it sweet and simple. From my perspective Google’s search results are better than Microsoft Bing, better than DuckDuckGo, and difficult to compete against but I worry about all that tracking Google does.
This is a simple approach to dealing with what Google does best and worst. Think of it as Google search results without all the tracking mechanisms.
You can’t beat Google when it comes to online search. So we’re paying them to use their brilliant search results in order to remove all trackers and logs. The result: The world’s best and most private search engine. Only now you can search without ads following you around, recommending products you’ve already bought. And no more data mining by companies with dubious intentions. We want you to dance like nobody’s watching and search like nobody’s watching.
Simply put, SearchPage does not collect personal data, provides a completely anonymous view of results links, and because there is no filtered search results, you get a wider variety of results.
Win, Win, Win.
Google still gets paid. Startage has ads. You get tracker free search results. From Google.
As kids, we’re all taught not to touch stuff that doesn’t belong to us. It’s a good guideline. So why are online companies harvesting our personal data without our consent? They shouldn’t.
How is this not a better way to search with Google.
The company has tips on how to setup Startpage as the default search engine on your browser (even Apple doesn’t want you to use Startpage), plus there’s an iPhone and iPad app to avoid Google entirely.
