Top 12 Best Search Engines in The World (2022)

Search Engines are now part of our daily life, whether it be carrying out research for Xmas presents or where is the nearest coffee shop open before 7am or looking for best Steak House in town. People are now becoming more and more dependent on search engines to get the answer for their everyday queries.

At Inspire we monitor our search traffic using a variety of analytics. Most of our queries returned are related to what we do and some are simply bizarre. Those we’re interested in relate to the services of what we do e.g improving search ranking, web design, web development, and many more.

Much as we utilise “all routes to market” we are still heavily dependent on the search engines for our bread & butter traffic.

Recently we did a piece of work for a client looking to reach into the Russian market, they’d spoken to other firms who all shared about what they’d do on Google and how such experts they are. This completely missed the point as Google are not the dominant search engine in Russia, Yandex is!!!

This brought it home to me that perhaps people have assumed that because Google is a dominant Global player that they are also the dominant player in every market.

When I first started using WebCrawler 30 years ago, most search engines could reduce the list of hits by;required words,required character strings, andwords which must not be there.Now only Google has that functionality, and it usually doesn't work.Are there any other search engines that still do what I need ?

The application model that orders the search engine results according to categories. (project)Ph.D. Boris Pevzner mtpl.boris@gmail.comPhone 972-545-983-919(‘Google’ is used as an example only)1. It is known that the quality of a search according to key words is significantly affected by the algorithmsof ordering output websites. As rule, an user takes account (opens links) only the sites located on first pageof output search result. Those systems that use categorization allow the user to navigate the possible choicesmore accurately. But modern search engines have no categories. The main function of the application is toassign category codes to output sites (Flws). The algorithm is based on the principles of learning machineand data mining. Our application is autonomous independent object. It is connected with Google (or othersearch engine) through two standard points-enter (key words) and output (results-links) The developers of theapplication will not work with Google codes. It should note, that the categories are not search parameters and they are used to make easier theselection of the required Web site. The technology is based on the algorithm may be used for marketing , forfiltering of data from textual news flow and for the evaluation of Internet user’s interests.2. Creating learning set of each category.We selected some generic categories (computer, medicine, agriculture, technology, linguistics, science,education and so on). By means of google searches we got the set of websites of each category ( two first pages- 40 websites). Thentext zone of a website is extracted by ‘BeautifulSoap’( BeautifulSoup is a Python library for pullingdata out of HTML and XML files ) and then repeated words and stop words are removed from this ‘clear’website (Flws) After that all ‘clear’ sites are merged into unit file Flunit. It is the file corresponding to one of category. Flunit is transformed into a category vector Vcat, It is the learning set of the category. 3. Algorithm of categorization The algorithm is based on the principles of learning machine and data mining. 3.1. Main objects are the category vectors (Vcat ) and the site vectors to which a code will be assigned (Vws ) . Vcat consists of all different words of Flunit. The dimension of Vcat is the number of different words of Flunit. It is the number of coordinates. Dimensionality of the coordinate is frequency of a word into Flunit. A website of output result (Flws) is transformed into a website vector Vws. Vws consists of all different words of Flunit (Vcat). To each word of Vws is assigned its site frequency, rest words (relatively Vcat ) have frequency = 0. The dimension of Vcat is equal the dimension of Vws. If a word wasn’t in a website 3.2. Our software calculates cosine of an angle ? between Vcat., in one hand, and Vws, in other hand, for all categories and all output web sites. Cosine between two angles is calculated in this way , where xi,yi,zi are vector coordinates. We have the following sequence of pairs for each category Vcat. -V1ws …cos ?1-V2ws … cos ?2- *- *-V40ws … cos ?40 3.4. The software orders these pairs for reducing cos ?. 3.5. If cos ? is within 1-0.8, then this web site is assigned the code of category. For checking of cosine as a proximity measure we made a small test. We had Vcat . We googled according to query ‘data processing’ and got first two pages of output result. We selected the Website (website1) of first page and the Website of second (website2). Our program created two vectors Vwb1 and Vwb2. Cosine(A1) between Vcat and Vwb1 =0.80206, cosine(A2)=0.41. The program is assigned to Vwb1 at thecode of category ‘computer’ and it doesn’t do the same to Vwb2 NumberWords of categoryvectorFrequency in VcatFrequency in VwsFrequency in VwsCategory vectorWebsite1 vector Website2 vector 1 W1 7 2 1 2 W2 5 2 0 3 W3 3 1 1 4 W4 3 0 2 5 W5 2 1 1 6 W6 2 1 0 7 W7 1 1 3 8 1 1 4 cosine 0.80206 0.41 3.6. The result of output search can have the following form on the screen of display: Categories number of output sites, belonged to the category computer N1 medicine N2 agriculture N3 3.7. User selects need category (ies) and open links corresponded the selected category. 4. Conclusion-Developed technology makes ease a user contact with Google.The user can more targeted to open the need website andcan access output far sites ( from second page) quite easily. -The technology may be used for marketing, for filtering of data from textual news flow and for theevaluation of Internet user interests. -The technology may be used in library catalogues. -Main requirement of technological software is high speed of data processing.

Thank you for the guidance.. It does work.
byLarryon4 November 2019 05:39 PM
Most popular does not equal "Best". I was expecting some sort of comparison of the search results along thelines of actual relevancy, cleanliness (filtering of the regurgitation sites), number of results, and timing.Seldom do humans choose the "best" they always seem to choose the most convenient.
