Consumer Reports recommends Duck Duck Go Search EngineDuck Duck Go Search Engine

Customers often ask - "With all your lampshades, why is it so hard to find you on Google ?"
The answer is simple.
Google's core business is advertising. Google search results are generated to favor advertisers and BIG companies.
Duck Duck Go is the closest thing to searching the internet.

Google Test Search: For "cordless drill" on desktop computer 9-28-19:
A) At the top of the results page: 13 Advertisments - 4 Text Ads + 9 Image Ads
B) Next appears 9 search results, but many are duplicates of the advertisers at top of page
C) At bottom of the results page: 13 Advertisments - 3 Text Ads + 2 Image Ads + 8 More Text Ads
Summary: 26 advertisements vs 9 search results
Google mobile phone search results are even further askew and disappointing.

"Google began as a search engine, now an advertising marketing company offering searches."

Fortunately there is a much better alternative.
