Search For Google Alternatives Soar
Anxiety over the tracking of searches on Google has turned out to be a huge boost for other search engines. FORBES is reporting that a wide variety of websites like Duck Duck Go and Ixquick have experienced major increases in traffic due to privacy concerns with the dominant search engine Google.
Google has taken notice of this trend and is making great efforts to reassure its users that they are safe from unwanted snooping. A spokesman for the company, who oddly did not want his name used in the FORBES article, maintains that there is nothing for Google users to worry about.
“Google goes above and beyond to make sure your information is safe, secure and always available to you,” the spokesman said. “Our commitment to the security of your data is absolute — we have more than 400 full-time security experts providing design reviews, consulting, training and education across the company, as well as building privacy and security technologies into our products.”
