Alternative of Google Search engine

Google, is a web search engine developed by Google LLC. It launched September 15, 1997.In 2013 the European Commission found that Google Search favored Google’s own products, instead of offering consumers the best result for their needs. Google is written in C or C++ for efficiency and can run in either Solaris or Linux. In order to scale to hundreds of millions of web pages, Google has a fast distributed crawling system. A single URLserver serves lists of URLs to a number of crawlers. Both the URLserver and the crawlers are implemented in Python.

“Search engine technology has had to scale dramatically to keep up with the growth of the web. In 1994, one of the first web search engines, the World Wide Web Worm (WWWW) [McBryan 94] had an index of 110,000 web pages and web accessible documents. As of November, 1997, the top search engines claim to index from 2 million (WebCrawler) to 100 million web documents (from Search Engine Watch). It is foreseeable that by the year 2000, a comprehensive index of the Web will contain over a billion documents. At the same time, the number of queries search engines handle has grown incredibly too. In March and April 1994, the World Wide Web Worm received an average of about 1500 queries per day. In November 1997, Altavista claimed it handled roughly 20 million queries per day. With the increasing number of users on the web, and automated systems which query search engines, it is likely that top search engines will handle hundreds of millions of queries per day by the year 2000. The goal of our system is to address many of the problems, both in quality and scalability, introduced by scaling
search engine technology to such extraordinary numbers”.[The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine
