Democracy in Search Engine Results!

I believe all my readers know that I am boycotting the search engine that begins with a G and ends with an E. In an effort to help others wean themselves from using this search engine, I have been looking into alternatives and reviewing them on this blog.

Earthfrisk.org - Democracy in Search

The latest search engine offering is Earthfrisk.org. Earthfrisk is a metasearch engine, which means it delivers search engine result pages (SERPs) from all the major search engines; social networks like Del.icio.us, StumbleUpon, Technorati, Digg and Reddit; and information sites like Wikipedia, WebMD, Britannica, Dictionary and InfoPlease.

From the website:
Add your own site, vote and comment on sites and together we can build a truly Democratic Search Engine That WE the People control.
To decrease the number of spam sites returned in the SERPs, Earthfrisk has added a community to the search engine. You simply register and then you may vote and comment on results, rendering a color value (CV) rating system, thus doing away with dubious page ranks-- which we know may be stripped for any reason by one search engine.

There are toolbars for both Firefox and Internet Explorer. You may have a custom toolbar with your logo on it if you wish, so that readers may download the toolbar from your site.

I love it. Power to the searchers. Down with the tyrants.

How are you boycotting Google?! Who do you think Blogger is..?

@chris-if you read my blog, you would have seen a post that describes what I have done to boycott. I know by whom Blogger is owned and will be moving domains after the new year. Best to you in 2008.

Thanks for more on this topic, Cybercelt. I will give Earthfrisk a try.

I've been using dogpile.com for a few years, too. It's a metasearch engine that I think does a good job, too.

Nice to see you're back. God bless.

@Sandy-I'll be posting for BYB Sunday. I have missed it!

I've never heard of this search engine Cybercelt. I always tend to use Yahoo. But I'm going over to have a look. Thanks for the information
