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,
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
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!
LinkedIn search for Sandeep in DuckDuckgo search engine
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
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
There are several other forms of youtube video entertainment and interactivity
2.Youtube Movies and Shows
3.Youtube Music Premium
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 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.
