Even though Google is the most popular, a lot of people don’t realize that there are other search engines, including the five below, that are just as good, if not better. Keep reading to learn more.


Adswish is a new search engine that is offering something a bit different from the other search engines out there. This classified ads search engine is perfect for finding products and services online easily and quickly. You will encounter even more accurate search results for anything that you want to locate from anywhere on the planet, so if you have been disappointed in the past with the way that other search engines like Google perform when it comes to finding specific services or products, definitely give Adswish a try. 


Bing is actually the second largest search engine behind Google, so it is a great alternative that is also backed by the Microsoft brand. You can do so many things with Bing, including calculations, shopping for products, tracking flights, getting your favorite sports teams’ scores, making conversions, getting translations, spell checking, and a lot more.


Yahoo has partnered with Bing and now all of its results come from Bing, but it is still a great alternative to the Google search engine if you are looking for something different. You can also access the information that you need in as many as 38 languages, and you can even get even more answers conveniently with its other features, which include Yahoo Finance and Yahoo Answers.


A new yet really fast growing search engine is DuckDuckGo, which is perfect for users who are really concerned with maintaining their privacy on the World Wide Web. This search engine will aggregate results from a lot of different sources of information, but it will not keep track of any of the searches that you make. The same can’t be said for other search engines like Google. It also aggregates its results from Yandex, Bing, and other search engines while displaying them privately to you, the end user.

Ask is a different kind of search engine because it follows a question-and-answer format. A community of people work hard at answering questions accurately so you can find the answers that you require to a wide array of queries. Whether you are interested in education, politics, science, business, technology, literature, art, or any other topic, consider asking your questions on this search engine instead.

As you can see, there are many different search engines that you can use to access the information that you need quickly and easily while you are online, so you do not have to always rely upon the results that Google provides.
