  • What other search engines do you use regularily other than Google?

    For me, now that I know Yahoo has switched over to its own algorithm, I find myself using Yahoo quite often when Google doesn't return the results I want. However, it seems for the common keywords, the two return very similar results.

    MSN is good. It seems to be more revelent than Google. Especially when I search for a pokedex, it returns a list of detailed pokedexs on the net unlike Google which returns ones that are much less detailed.

      I really never use anything else then Google and have been this way, well, for a good few years now.

      I almost always find what I want with Google, I general am fairly good at picking what keywords I need to find whatever it is I need. And if I can't find it, I generally give up... I come to the conclusion if it's not on Google, I can't find it anywhere...

            If you don't want a page that displays "search results" use this term your term -search. It will discard any pages with the term "search" in it.

              I understand that Google is returning more and more Junk as time goes on.

                But Google is making another major update, I thought.

                  I've seen a noticable degradation in Google's accuracy over the past year/year-and-a-half. However, it's still my number one choice, simply because of how no-nonsense it is.

                  It's the fastest of all the search sites to load, and it doesn't have annoying banners, etc.
                  :)

                    I sometimes use alltheweb.com when google fails me (as others have said, more regularly now then it ever has been).

                          I currently have the Google toolbar installed, though I'm almost tempted to add the Yahoo toolbar as well if it werent for the extra clutter on my screen. Diversity indeed is good.
