Agreed, Google is indeed King and provides the best search results, far more superior than bing or yahoo.com.

This, people need to get over it, Google is THE search engine to use, and people need to get off this "Google is Evil" BS, all companies want your information to do whatever with it, no one but you cares about your "privacy"

There's only one real alternative: Bing.

google gives me the most relevant hits on the topic I am looking for. I have tried many and have always returned to google....I used to like webcrawler when the interwebz was in its infancy, lycos too, even ask jeeves (which is now just ask). I have always dispised yahoo and aol search, talk about tons of irrelevant hits at the top..bing isn't much better.

Bing has been impressing me lots since I got my Windows Phone, I still think Google is better though.

Bing and Yahoo are pretty much the only quality alternatives.

I don't see why Google wouldn't give the best results though. It just honestly does.

I prefer the results I get from Bing. Google is just irritating to use (especially that useless Google Instant) and the quality of the results is poor. I'm tired of getting multiple links to the same crap sites from Google.

Maybe I'm paranoid but does the "DG" in your username stand for "DuckGo" ... spam?? :p

Anyway, Google is by far the best search engine in my experience....and I've used them all Dogpile, Ask Jeeves, Lycos, Yahoo, Bing.. Google takes the cake :)

There are search engines other than Google?

I can't understand why people want to move away from something when it's "mainstream." There is a reason that Google is popular, it provides the best results.

https://www.duckduckgo.com is a good one, and doesn't change the priority of search results based on your personal search history.
https://www.blekko.com is another good one that uses something called "slash tags" extensively to allow you to customize your search results.

I use bing. It works, that's all I care about.

It's funny how you replied to your own OP recommending a search engine to OP - which happens to be you.
