DuckDuckGo — Privacy, simplified. No need for Google: 12 alternative search engines in 2018. Working at Search Engine Watch isn’t all about studying, understanding, and reporting on Google. With more than 9% of web users searching on other engines, it’s important that we occasionally take the time to check out what they are using and what those platforms are up to. Read on for my hotlist of 12 alternatives to ‘The Big G’.
