A Complete List of Alternatives To The Google Search Engine – Collective Evolution

In Brief

  • The Facts:Using Google as a search engine is no longer giving you access to unedited truth. As admitted by Google exec Jen Gennai, you will sew what Google wants you to see.
  • Reflect On:Is it time to swap search engines and give yourself access to a wider perspective? How much will this affect what you think is true or real in our world? How might this completely change the decisions you make in your life?

We are living in a very interesting time, one in where we have a ‘ministry of truth’ that is quite Orwellian. This ministry of truth is deciding what’s real and what’s not for people, and they hold a tremendous amount of power and resources. Google is part of this ministry, and they are playing their part in censoring, demonetizing, and hiding information and platforms that does not suit the plans, agendas and the wants of the people that run Google and who are tied to.

One of the most recent examples I wrote about was with regards to one of the top natural health/health awareness websites in the world, Mercola.com. They like many others including Collective Evolution, have been censored by Google as well as their other social media platforms for simply sharing information. No matter how solid the evidence or sources are, it’s simply being censored because of what the information implies and because of the consequences it may have for those in power, and whose powerful interests that information may threaten.

Have we really got to the point where simple information can be censored just because it is threatening? Why do we have to have global elitists determining what is real and what is fake for the population? Is the population not capable of doing this on their own? Who are these ‘fact checkers?’…

Alternatives To Google & Why

All this said, when you search for things on Google, you will see what Google wants you to see, and it WILL shape the narrative by which you see your world. It will also push you to search for certain things over others.

Here is a great example. When you type in “vaccines cause a”, nowhere in the list do you see autism, even though that is one of the most searched terms on the subject. Instead, you see a very different list, see below.

Another great example would be anyone trying to search about the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

If you type in “hillary clinton email” you get no suggestions at all

But if you tested that against “donald trump email” you get normal suggestions.

As per an admission from Google executive Jen Gennai, this is because Google is trying to draw a line in the sand and tell people what’s right and what’s wrong in our world. You can learn more about her statements here...

 

Here are ten alternatives to Google search:

  • StartPage – StartPage gives you Google search results, but without the tracking (based in the Netherlands).
  • Searx – A privacy-friendly and versatile metasearch engine that’s also open source.
  • MetaGer – An open source metasearch engine with good features, based in Germany.
  • SwissCows – A zero-tracking private search engine based in Switzerland, hosted on secure Swiss infrastructure.
  • Qwant – A private search engine based in France.
  • DuckDuckGo – A private search engine based in the US.
  • Mojeek – The only true search engine (rather than metasearch engine) that has its own crawler and index (based in the UK).
  • YaCy – A decentralized, open source, peer-to-peer search engine.
  • Givero – Based in Denmark, Givero offers more privacy than Google and combines search with charitable donations.
  • Ecosia – Ecosia is based in Germany and donates a part of revenues to planting trees….

Be seeing you
