    It was a wise move to digitalize the knowledge available, Google has access to publications of all sorts. The guys have to seriously mess up to be ditched.

    It must be safer for them to deprioritize a result than to omit from listing, therefore one thing that we can does is to find out the average numbers of pages that searchers are willing to go through before giving up, and we can expect to start finding less manipulated results from there. Adding specific sentences and narrowing the search makes them more difficult to be avoided. What I mean is that we can no longer search for vague terms counting on the engine's cooperation.

    Huh, it's interesting that you say that brave isn't the best for privacy. Do you have a link or a source in mind?

    What about duckduckgo? Have you ever come across any damning information about it?

    Doesn't work. If your search includes any word that is related to any kind of controversy all you will get are sanctioned results, it doesn't matter how specific you are.

    I mean for those that aren't excluded, but moved down the listing.

    If I'm not wrong, there are ways of using multiple search engines at once. Wowever, I don't know if they work well and if they're into ducks.

    Welcome to the new age of transparency - where all the knowledge is right there at the tips of your fingers. That glass rectangular monolith that houses infinite potential. So easily it must be for those who access the internet to simply understand the world - Or could it be that the consequential outcomes to such promises of information media assume a new order of power? There's no where for information to hide, right? It's a little strange to think that all the information we need to live fits within the palm of a hand... Okay I'll stop now... But seriously, this homo-digitalis nonsense is possibly just another means to be controlled. Pretty simple. We don't gain things by externalising there function, I think Peat even speaks of this...

    I find it difficult to believe that a search engine owned by big tech could ever be un-skewed towards some sociocultural/market incentive. I say we find some bootleg search engine run from someones garage, that'll probably be the only way to have a truly free search engine
