Alternative to Google?


BR to Some
19 Apr 2002
Anybody know a GOOD search engine other than Google? Its getting pretty useless now becaue no matter what i search for it just links you to some price comparison page or shops.

And anyone tried looking for a review of something - sheesh...

Anyhoo - any ideas?
Sponsored links are at the top. Search for "Item name review" and you'll find what you're after.

All other search engines either feed off Yahoo! / MSN / Google or are just useless.
The name doesn't rolls of the tongue like google though!

What about yahoo :confused: Thats the one I always use.

Look at the very bottom of the page....

"Search Technology provided by Google"
Though now Yahoo is going to ditch Google's technology in favor of their own.

Wasn't that supposed to happen a loooooooooong time ago? Or are they just taking their time about it?
it was posted not long ago ;) the change over is very soon i think.
No thats still going ahead - i *think* i saw an article about that the other day in theInquirer.

Thanks for all the alternative suggestions as well, i realise that the sponsored links are at the top, but it sucks because unless i want to buy something then its useless.

For example, i was looking for some new drivers for my Joytech/, PS2 USB controller adapter, and the stuff that it was bringing up was just wrong so im moving on. It more than just that one thing, just a growing feeling of dissatisfaction with Google and the amount of Sponsored links they have these days (no i dont want to price compare a joypad thank you very much). The should be kept to the side on the right and not included in the main search.

Thanks guys.

BTW - First impressions looks pretty good AND it defaults to searches in the English language only as well - ta thebear

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
