Duck Duck Go…ose… Google, You Are Not It!! April 4, 2012Posted by Jill Renee in : Engagement Rings , trackback
Google has crappy search results. The same company comes up time after time for many different search terms. Instead of showing a variety of results, Google just shows the “name brands”. For example, if I search for an outdoor wicker candle holder (which I really did this morning), I get target, amazon and overstock… and the results show wicker furniture and metal candleholders… ugh!! When I do the same search on a new search engine called Duck Duck Go I actually get results from places that sell outdoor wicker candle holders! These are not
big name stores but they actually have exactly what I am looking for. So I can spend 30 minutes rummaging through all the spammy results on Google to find what I am looking for or two minutes on Duck Duck Go and be ordering what I want… I choose Duck Duck Go!
In addition when I do a search on Google, I know Big Brother is watching me and selling me out to the highest bidder. I don’t like being spied on and then marketed to based on my search terms. If I am doing a research project on the world’s largest diamonds, do I really need to see ads for DeBeers six months later every time I log onto my e-mail account??
Easy to see why I am loving this new little ducky on the search scene.
