Microsoft Bing does not return results for some politically charged queries, such as ‘fbi raid bannon‘ (no quotes). It might be Microsoft’s malfeasance.
Early September: The Alt Web Search is updated
March 11, 2022
A new Alt Web Search is available. It attempts to surface information that Google and Bing hide, including conservative views, healthcare, climate realism, Spygate, Obamanet, criticism of Big Tech.
In addition to the dedicated search page, it is accessible from a widget in the right column.
The Alt Web Search covers only a small number of sites, and is not fine tuned yet. Still, it is a useful complement to Google, Bing, and DuckDuckGo. Please leave your comments and suggestions under this post.
The Alt Search uses Microsoft Bing Custom Search, and Microsoft receives the user information, probably not less than if the user were using Bing.
