Hi, Everybody, Happy independence Day to all of you!

In today’s blog, I will start with answering a question that I have asked to my audience in my LinkedIn post! 

The question is that we all know that Google is the leading search engine in the world but anybody has an idea that, 

Which is the second most search engine in the world?

Youtube!

  Yes, Correct!

Youtube is the second most search engine in the world so you understand the type of search content also, it means after a Google Content search, People around the world search about the videoes only,

In this blog, we are going to talk about the different types of search engines available around the world and some interesting facts about them  

Of course!, we will be discussing the most happening star of the search engine GOOGLE and YOUTUBE

Ok,

Let me start with the less famous search engine comparison to these two

The first one on my list is BING

BING:- 

It is also formerly known as Microsoft Bing as it is being developed and operated by Microsoft, I think those who are using the Windows operating system are familiar with it as it is coming as a default search engine  now,

Before Bing, Microsoft has come with many search engines like MSN search, Windows Live search, and also Microsoft live search,

Bing is the latest happening from the Microsoft side,

According to Wikipedia,

Microsoft Bing is the third largest search engine in the USA with a query volume of 4.58%, Behind  Google( 77%) and Baidu (14.45%), Yahoo search (2.63%) which is largely powers by the Bing

One of the most important facts about Bing as it comes with a rewards points program that allows anyone to accumulate points while searching,

These points are redeemable at the Microsoft and windows store which is a nice pick

On June 10, 2013, Apple announced that it would be dropping Google as its web search engine in favor of Bing, This feature is only integrated with iOS 7 and higher and for users with an iPhone 4S or higher as the feature is only integrated with Siri, Apple’s personal assistant

The Second Search engine on my list is Duckduckgo

DuckDuckgo:-

As we all have believed that searches can not be protected and there is nothing personal in the age of the internet,

But forget about GOOGLE for some time there is a search engine in this world that Doesn’t collect data or store your personal information, that is DuckDuckgo,

It is a perfect choice for those who wish to keep their browsing habits personal and information private 

In short, it is also known as DDG

It is headquartered in the USA and launched in Sep25,2008 and its owner is Duckduckgo, Inc

One of the coolest features of this search engine, which I have also experience is the, it allows you to search inside other sites,

You are not getting it, let me explain it, in other words, if you want to search  for someone details on LinkedIn, you don’t need to open Linkedin, the search engine page itself provides the LinkedIn platform 

Type “Linkedin” followed by the Person’s name! 

The below picture is explaining this!

Another cool feature is Add instant answers to another search engine

If you like all these instant answers but don’t want to leave your favorite search engine, just download the DuckDuckgo extension on chrome, Safari, or Firefox now whenever you search you will see DuckDuckgo’s instant answers above search results in any search engine,

 

Few other special features of search engines are like they can shorten and expand links, it provides suggestions for some of the best Passwords of the world, it is also a suitable search engine for finding alternative of a particular app 

The third search engine on my list is  YOUTUBE

YOUTUBE:-

As we already started our discussion with Youtube, it is the second-highest  search engine in the world after GOOGLE,

As we all know that youtube is a free online video sharing and creating Platform, it is  originated in the USA and created by three former Pay Pal  employees-Chad Harley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim,

It is ownership changed to  Google as it is brought by Google in 1.65 billion in 

 October 2006,

There are several other forms of youtube video entertainment  and interactivity

1.Youtube Premium

2.Youtube Movies and Shows 

3.Youtube Music Premium

4.Youtube gaming

5.Youtube live 

Ther is a rough idea that 20,000-/Day videos are uploaded per day on youtube  and also it is having around one billion monthly users per month, who used to watch one billion hours of videos each day

Ther is an interesting history about Youtube, In 2005, an American company search engine company had launched a video service called Google video but it is failed to generate much traffic,

This is the reason Google finally purchases it in form of stocks,

After purchasing google rather than merging it with the websites, it continued 

youtube’s operation as it before

One of the facts related to Youtube is that in May 2019, T-Series, a Bollywood music label become the first Youtube  Channel to hit 100 million subscribers, it beats out Pew Die Pie, the second-largest most popular channel on Youtube.

One more fun fact about Youtube is the, for the first time in history since it is acquired by Google 14 years before,

Google revealed about the ad revenue, it is some around $14 Billion in 2009, which is 9% of its parent company Alphabet total ad revenue.

The next one on my list of search engines is GOOGLE

GOOGLE:-

As we all know, at least in India that Google has become the synonyms for the search,

 When we  required some information about anything, we don’t suggest, go for a search  but we used to tell go and GOOGLE it 

Google was formally known as “BackRub”, Later it is being known as Google which is inspired by the term “Googol”,

It is owned by Alphabet. inc and headquartered in the USA, founded in Sep4,1988.

The founder of Google is Lary Page, Sergey Brin,

The corporate philosophy of Google is 

1.“You can make best without doing evil”

2.“You can be serious without a suit”

3.“Work should be challenging and the challenges should be fun”

Some of the interesting facts about Google

Google launched the Google News service in 2002, an automated service that summerise news articles from various websites, 

It also hosts Google Books a service that searches the text found in books and its database and shows limited previews 

Some of Google well know products are in the picture below!

After providing little detail about Google, it is time to provide a final thought over the complete blog, the blog is for all the people, who have the mindset that Google is the only search engine available, it is a myth that has to be corrected, I do agree that Google is a most popular search engine available but it is not the only one, even I have information that Reliance Jio has launched his own search engine, I have checked it, it is true, so now we have an Indian brand of web browser or search engine, I am giving a screenshot for that!

So the concluding point of the blog, Keep enjoying the Google search but keep your eyes open for other search engines available as they may provide some good features and benefits as Google can not, due to high traffic, 

Once again, Wishing all of you a Happy Independence Day!

Keep reading and motivating me as I am also doing the same,

Thank you very much for providing your valuable time in reading this.
