I've always said they use the same exact  algorithm as Goog and I was Right.

I started using the one she suggested, and it seems to work, so far.

Hilarious! I did a search for "July 2019 DNC scraping for donations" and what comes up? Abortion. I kid you not. Though a common term for it is D&C.
Hell, maybe it is a Conservative search engine after all. :lol:

Although traditionally performed by scraping with a curette, today's D&C options include suction curettage by vacuum aspiration, such as the innovative Olympus ...

I used the one suggested in the video.

And I have this good bridge for sale.   :rolleyes:  (buyer beware)
A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

Seeing how google created Duckgo, built its algorithm platform then sold it to cohorts, who added another Duck to the name, it's safe to say, nothing has changed and google more than likely has access to Duckduckgo stats.

I'll use BING until I have good reason not to.

Bing is one of the worst offenders. You just as well carry around Alexa wit you. :lol:

How do we know if that one is no better?
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.

Try it. I can tell they aren't using Goog' algorithm and that's a good start.

Interesting but who cares?  Or why should you care? These companies make money off you and many sites complain if you use ad blocker. When you don't find what you want simply redo the search criteria.

"StartPage calls itself “the world’s most private search engine.” It says it gives you the best of two worlds: Google search results and complete privacy protection. This claim is probably a bit far-fetched. No search engine can offer “complete” privacy protection, because once you leave the search engine you are back at the liberties of the sites you visit."

Difference being? Both Goog and Duckduck support leftist causes. Conservatives want nothing to do with Marxism on any level, therefore, I offer options.
