Top Ten Worst Search Engines

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

The Top Ten

1 Start MySearch Dial

I hope this is a search engines, but this is not a search engines.

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.

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.

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

2 Bing

Why does Microsoft try to shove this down our throats every chance it can.

By far the worst search engine. If you misspell something (even a letter), count on all of your results be messed up. Unreal.

Bing should only one search option, to search for Google. Bing search engine is absolute pathetic.

#Bing is so bad because the give answers (Billions of them) before you even have formulated your question#

3 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

TERRIBLE GOOGLE coagulates garbage soup out of your key words so that only the 5HIT floats to the top of the list. Worst of all is the level of relevance has been down for years. It is so frustrating and "putting text in quotes to force a find" - does not work anymore. Also repeating words worked at one time to force relevance, but not anymore - Google sweeps together garbage soup - something has gone wrong. Try to buy a toy in the UK or US when in another country is impossible - it forces local region sales and ignores your UK or US options - A TOWER OF BUGS A MILE HIGH AND NO FEEDBACK TO LET THEM KNOW. Political correctness algorithms are kicking in and they are acting against both academic and scientific facts that are timeless and last forever - google is like a dead rat in your floorboards it stinks of PC without hope of recovery. The lack of feedback is equal to the arrogance of dead Roman emperors who thought they were gods.

Google sucks as a search engine because quality is declining

The king of Spyware and Censorship. Google is the worst of all. - shadomatrix

4 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 is basically google and yahoo with a different name

5 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

It Redirects me to a "GoDaddy Website for some reason

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

6 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

7 AOL

Aol? Are they still there?

The Buick of search engines...

This is marvellous! I love it

PARTY LIKE IT'S 1999

8 Yandex

Never heard of it? There's a reason...

Communist search engine

HOLD IT, Yandex is terrible. The worst ever. Why does it get your results in different languages! I'm sure that the browser is a virus, it sound like Yontoo. This is bad. I hate it. MISERABLE.

I LOVE YANDEX!

9 Norton Safe Search

This is the worst search engine ever! It never takes me to what I'm searching for, just leads me from one search to another. I hate it!

Please! Why does this exist?!?!

It is really good

This auto decides it should be the default search engine without asking for permision

10 PCHSearch&Win

Tried to get me to search and win or I would, "Lose out on oppurtunity to win monies." That spelling is exactly what it said.

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 Contenders

11 Search.com

Completlly broken search engine, Bing does so much better than this.

I searched youtube and it didn't know what it was

Google won't come up either! This is just evil

Search.com doesn't know what YouTube is. That sums it up.

12 Ask.com

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

Worst ever I click on something then adds more results and ads

13 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

Aside from being incapable of completing searches relevant to your query, Yahoo! And Microsoft work together. That should tell you what maximum quality output you're going to get some such an un-evolved, unintelligent search engine.

14 DuckDuckGo

This is a great website. Is quick and gives accurate information. Why does it show in the top ten worst things?

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.

15 Answers.com

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

Can never get through a whole search without it freezing!

Horrible internet speed
