Top Ten Worst Search Engines

What is the #1 WORST search engine of time?! You vote!

The Top Ten

1 Start MySearch Dial

Okay, I've seen bad search engine, but this is a virus. Just a virus. I got it while searching "good and bad search engines" then got - THIS VIRUS. I had to reboot my computer and corrupted some of my files. This is bad. Bad.

I like the virus very much. It helps with my depression.

I gave my friend this and some of their files got corrupted

Instead of seeing the actual search engine, I instead saw a lot of ways to uninstall Start MySearch Dial. That should say how bad of a virus it is.

2 Delta Search

Yeah, this doesn't exist. All it says is "Remove from Chrome" or "Remove from" whatever. That's all I need to know.

This search engine doesn't exist. It redirects me to yahoo for some reason

Pretty gay if I say so myself, and I do.

3 Dogpile

Dogpile is the best you idiots

Why does this need to exist. It looks so outdated and when you enter the site it automatically searches its own url

I think "pile" means crap and doges are better than plain old dogs

It showed me "not secure" with a danger triangle on it. - CartoonCriticizer

4 Metacrawler

This isn't even a search engine

This is the worst search engine I have ever encountered.

Seems to just direct you to a german page, I think hacked

it sucks

5 PCHSearch&Win

I searched this topic on PCHSearch&Win just because I could not believe how bad this search engine was, and Lo and Behold, what search engine is at number 5 of the worst search engines? PCHSearch&Win. Yep, that says it all.

Takes you to a few, mostly unrelated sites - seldom what you are looking for.

I can NEVER find anything with the search engine

The absolute worse!

6 DuckDuckGo

DuckDuckGo is THE way to go if you don't want all your personal information sold to the highest bidder. It's safe, reliable and fast.

It is the best! It doesn't track you, unlike Google, which tracks everything you put in the search box. I have no idea why it is in this list.

So overrated. Just jammed together from other, better search engines.

It's the best

7 Bing

Bing has very limited and skewed search results that never take me where I want to go. Bing seems to have an agreement with Microsoft that makes it the default search engine on every new computer that I use which is very annoying. I understand how Google thinks and how Google searches, why would I want to use a less competent program that always seems to omit the particular search results that I am actually looking for.

As I've said before on TheTopTens, a search engine is either Google or useless. But Bing is dreadful; no doubt about that. - PositronWildhawk

This is all incorrect! Bing is AMAZING! In fact, I am using it right now! There is nothing google has that bing doesn't. I also like the feature where you can hide the news, and the background pictures everyday are amazing! Bing is a perfect website for someone who just needs to search the web.

Bing is complete TRASH. the only thing it is good for is saving your preferences for SafeSearch without being signed in. other than that, it sucks.

It is a worse search engine. It is invasive to any computer with out knowing. I've difficult to get rid of this ass. It mess up with all my computer. I get rid off few time but again came back. Because of its invasive nature and worthless I don't recommend this to any body.

Millions ads before a result, waste of time service

Absolutely horrible. Atrocious layout, atrocious order of search results and atrocious look. Besides, why would you even be using this anyways when you could used a better search engine such as google? - LowMiner50

TAKE BING OFF NOW! ask is the least dependable search engine, whenever I use it I never get the information I need.

The Contenders

11 Google Google Google is an American multinational technology company specializing in Internet-related services and products. These include online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, and software.

Yes, something has happened to Google in recent years. At one time you could get a very deep information search on Google. This is useful, for example, for software programmers trying to find answers to the most difficult, recondite programming bugs. There seems to be a trend, starting about ten years ago (mid to late 2000's) by the Google developers to transform from deep to "relevant." You can see this for yourself on some web searches, there is a message stating that some links were not shown because they were not "relevant." The problem is that what is relevant is someone's opinion. I think there is some kind of urban myth out there that Google embodies the cutting edge in information processing, as in artificial intelligence and the like. But it looks to me that the way Google prioritizes hits on a search is based about 90 percent on web traffic volume--popularity. That's not exactly a world shaking idea, is it? And the other ten percent seems to be the "relevance" thing, which ...more

Google has sucked for a very long time now. Everything you search brings up some a link to purchase something. Even if you already have the thing you're looking up. It doesn't search phrases any more just random words, like word soup, even if you put what you're searching for in quotations it still won't look up what your looking for. Google is a evil corporate sale out only interested in working with money grubbing corporations to sell you products that you don't want or don't need.

Google is the ONLY company who can introduce a "New and Improved" and take away features and remove usability at the same time. Only to reintroduce those features as new in the future because they have no genuine features. They 'reinvent" features that are 15 years old and market them as new. Google's search results SUCK. The use of punctuation to hone search results is NOW INEFFECTIVE.

Advance Search isn't worth a crap, either

I like answers for the fun articles but for actual answers, forget IT.

Can never get through a whole search without it freezing!

It sucks. I used it to get here and almost died from cancer.


I also used it to get here,for the memes😂

16 Yahoo

If you want to totally waste an entire day, try to contact "Yahoo Customer, We Don't Care! Department".
They put you in a circular loop sending you to the customer care site, then to the sign in site and then to the customer care site and give you a number to call, "We are experiencing long wait times, so depending on your age and health, you may want to hang up, give up and go to Google, or you can be redirected to customer Care online which will bring you right back here after about an hour, final solution, you can wait on hold, listening to our annoying Yahoo refrain over and over and over again for three or four hours"..
Today is Sunday the 16th. of November 11:27 AM, I have been on hold since 8:22 AM, after I was dropped twice after waiting and additional two hours.
I have been trying to reset my email password, that Yahoo dropped for some reason, and then locked my account.
To unlock the account they put you in the circle of Hell...
Good Luck to anyone who may be ...more

I have worked tirelessly to get SEO for my businesses website. Despite being #1 local on Google, #1 organic on Google, #1 organic on Bing.. my company is not even found hardly on Yahoo. I am outranked by a company 1/20 the size of my company who's website was done in like the 80's (Not Mobile Ready), I am outranked by a company that is no longer in business- In fact I purchased the majority of his inventory. To say Yahoo sucks would be giving them too much credit. They must have some of the worst SEO analysis people in history and thus is why they make ZERO money and are being crushed by Google!

My Chrome seems to be in love with this crappy search engine since it doesn't matter how many times I delete this sorry excuse for a search engine it always comes back...hell I can't even open up a new tab without it coming back...this search engine can be compared to a virus considering it doesn't go away no matter how hard you try...hell I had less trouble getting rid of Norton

Bad editorals no news poor grammar
