Top 3 Search Engines on the Internet

Over the last couple of decades, search engines have become an integral part of our lives. It’s highly unlikely to find anyone who connects to the Internet looking for information who does not use search engines. It’s even more probable that search engines are the homepages of their Internet browsers mainly because it is the first stop everyone makes.


Over the last couple of decades, search engines have become an integral part of our lives. It’s highly unlikely to find anyone who connects to the Internet looking for information who does not use search engines. It’s even more probable that search engines are the homepages of their Internet browsers mainly because it is the first stop everyone makes.

While there are many search engines available, only one dominates the most traffic that the others are almost blasted into oblivion. Here is a quick list of the most widely used search engines on the Internet to help you gain a better perspective and offer you some great alternatives.

  1. Google

Google is the best search engine the world has ever known. In fact, it’s the only one that a good number of people in the world know. What else can we say? It’s commanding almost three-fourths of the search engine market. It is the most website visited on the web.

  1. Bing

Although Miscrosoft ruled desktop computing, for a time, it got really left behind in the Internet world, being a huge company and slow to adapt. But since 2009, Microsoft challenged Google’s dominance by launching its own search engine, Bing. Its success lies in the fact that it’s the default search engine for Microsoft’s own web browser, Internet Explorer. Similar to Google, they offer different services such as images, videos, and map or locations searches.

  1. Yahoo!

Yahoo! has been around for quite some time now. It had its share of ups and downs, causing it to reinvent itself a few times. But they are a stickler when it comes to putting news, highlights and weather forecasts on their homepage. This makes them stand out from the first two search engines. As Google rose to search engine glory, Yahoo! is now simply in direct competition with Bing as both companies have never really caught up with the search engine giant.

Now you know Google isn’t the only search engine out there. You might want to try the other alternatives and see what results they bring you. Who knows, you discover that the other two fit your taste better than Google. You’ll never know unless you try.
