Search Engine Recommendations

Postby James R. Bath » Tue Nov 23, 2010 1:10 pm

If you use a p2p blocker or blocklist of some kind, you'll find that there are essentially no search engines that you can visit without either adding an exception for the site or opening a hole in your firewall/blocker for port 80.

So, the point of this topic is to post general Web search engines that are not blocked and can be trusted (other than the obvious and already blocked Google, Yahoo, Ask, Altavista, Bing, and the various other Microsoft/AOL/Amazon re-branded sites).

For example, Clusty, now Yippy (dot com) has has been off then on and now off again the blocked sites. As another example, the U of Berkeley library presently recommends Google, Yahoo, and one I haven't heard of: Exalead. As it turns out, you can't even trust Berkeley because Exalead is blocked for having a spy bot. So test before you post.

As an example response:

Yebol.com - a meta/clustered search site that is, for now, unblocked (I say for now because it has also sorts of embedded stuff on the site to Google, Yahoo, and pretty much every other major source of "monetizing", ads, and tracking). It does work and results are good (unlike the latest in over-hyped search sites Bing which simply provides a castrated list of Yahoo results).

ok, pardon my ignorance, but why would a p2p blocklist include search engines? :?

Good question, nothing ignorant about it MrFredPFL. I suppose for the same reasons they include p2p search engines and index sites. Some are fake, anti-p2p, or owned/controlled by someone/thing that is anti-p2p. Some may own commercial software or media that they don't want to be distributed freely. For the sake of simplicity, below are the current block references to one particularly well known, dominant search engine (including a few sites it owns) that I personally like and trust for most things but would never allow a file-sharing client to connect to:

A couple relevant updates posted elsewhere on Slyck regarding search engines, namely about Google now censoring some p2p:

Google is censoring only to the extent that it does not autofill the word you are typing until you get to the last letter, then it shows results. There is absolutely no change in any results provided as long as you type out the words completely yourself, and then hit search, whether it be bittorrent, file sharing or anything related.

Yes, the same Google that censors youtube and has censored TPB AFK search results. I hope p2p and the common Web people are better informed post-Snowden. Google also shows results prior to completing a word. Save us the Google sales pitch.

Additional search engines that are operating well and provide good results:

You do realize that you are responding to a post I did 2 years, and 8 months ago, right? Things do change over time. :wink:

Edit: And I'd like to add to that, that my post almost three years ago was specifically related to just the autofill only.

I'll accept that as an admission that I'm aware of security and privacy issues before you are. There are too many Google employees and sycophants on the Web and I don't want to hear another excuse for them ever again.

James, my post three years ago had nothing to do with privacy and security. However, it had everything to do with a mention of how the search engine was still providing the same results for words that no longer autofilled simply by typing them in.

You dislike Google, I get that. :wink: I was neither supporting them or promoting them in my statement about autofill.

I'm not liking Google so much anymore. There is so much junk on the top listings when you do a search with them now.
I used to use the Dogpile years ago. And slowly migrated to google because of firefox using it as it's default search engine.
Here lately I've been using duckduckgo more and more. I really like it. I'd never heard about the startpage search.
Thanks for the heads up James.
