SEA

It is not much unlike Energy Source Alternatives (ESA). Some people are considering Search Engine Alternatives (SEA), at a time when paid search space is continuing to increase and at a time when organic search results are displaced away from the first, search engine results page (SERP). Is this the beginning of a trend? Only time will tell!

 

 

The Knowledge Graph is a knowledge base Google uses to enhance its search engine results with information gathered from a variety of sources presented to users in a box to the right of search results. Some find that it is scraping away more and more publisher content even to the point where it is almost pointless to click through to a website, which stirs feelings of unfairness, over search engines monopolies and tax balance; feelings, which are acute, now more than ever.

 

As such, some feel there should be alternatives. Some remember when the share of the search market could be divided between Google, Yahoo, Ask Jeeves and AltaVista. Nowadays you are likely using the internet improperly without Google. Should a radical shift in market share direct our attention to the viability of alternative search engines? Some believe so!

 


Not everyone is ready to concede their careers and daily lives must balance on the fickle algorithm changes made by the world’s most valuable company. Naturally, some are curious what alternative search engines are out there?

Ask Jeeves is still with us; though you may not recognize him. Why? He is NOT a Wodehousian butler anymore. Nope! Oddly, he is a CGI bank manager.  This search tool remains a fair search engine. It is a useful question and answer site. Not happy with the results? Direct your attention to the popular and very handy Q&A results found on the right hand side. It makes a good use of the right hand side space other search engines tend to over look or don't make very good use of.

 


It ranks second in the world. But, it's a distant second with 15.8% of the search market. Some say that its video search is superior to Google’s with a grid of thumbnails. Play or preview. Simply hover over them. Others find its autocomplete suggestions are competitive. It can predict when airfares are about to go up or down for those searching for affodable flights. Its linkfromdomain: [site name] highlights the best ranked outgoing links from a site, a feature likely to help determine the other sites your chosen site links to the most. It also powers Yahoo's search engine.

 


If you want to get into the nitty-gritty of a subject with a variety of different points of view away from the major publications, Boardreader is a search tool, which surfaces search results purely from forums, message boards and, of course, Reddit.

This search engine does not retain user's data. It will not track you. It will not manipulate results based on your behavior. Those moderately uncomfortable with Google’s all-seeing, all-knowing eye find this particular search engine an ideal one.

 

Search Engine Alternatives?

As such, some feel that there should be search engine alternatives (SEA's). Some of us are old enough to remember when the share of the search market could be measurably divided between Google, Yahoo, Ask Jeeves and AltaVista. Nowadays, however, you are likely using the internet improperly without Google's obviously dominant search engine. Some people are of the opinion that this radical market share shift -within the search market- should direct our full attention to the viability of alternative, search engines.

WolframAlpha is a ‘computational knowledge engine’. It is clever. Ask it to calculate any data or ask it about any fact and it will give you the answer. It computes while it thinks about your answer (it can take a while.) It is NOT always successful. Getting the most out of it takes practice.
