Missing search engine http://www.gigablast.com/ which is a general web search engine as well as an open source search engine. Wiki12rt (talk) 04:50, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

By popularity

Could someone make a "By popularity" category for this list of search engines?

It would really help users to make up their mind about what search engine to use especially in terms of the private ones. Like how could I tell which private one has most searches? Is it Startpage.com or duckduckgo.com?

Btw, should DuckDuckGo not be listed in the metasearch engines since it uses multiple sources? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Patrick3004 (talkcontribs) 11:36, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Gigablast is now a page on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigablast Being one of the four web search engines in the U.S. with its own index over 1B pages it should probably be in the general search engine list as well as the open source engine list since it was recently open-sourced. - matt Wiki12rt (talk) 19:29, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

New category for Search engines for research

Research publications are searchable in search engines which are dedicated to them like BASE and MyScienceWork for Open Acces publications or Google scholar for a wider range of scientific publications. Those can not be listed in Medical as they also link to articles in physics, chemistry or social sciences.

I think that a category for Research should be created. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.240.229.83 (talk) 20:17, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Not done: Unfortunately this list has a misleading title (List of search engines), but it's actually "a list of articles about search engines" (see the first sentence of the lead section). Shopstyle doesn't yet have an article, so we can't yet add it. Sorry. --Stfg (talk) 15:08, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Title does not relate to the content

List of search engines

This is a list of articles about search engines


No wonder why google does not work as a search engine.

As most list in Wikipedia this is an internal list of X that is notable enough to have its own Wikipedia article. This is perfectly normal. If you know about an search engine that is notable and missing you can create an article for it, and add that article. Runarb (talk) 11:09, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
That's not the point. The point is that the title says it's a list of search engines, whereas the lede says that it's a list of articles. Inconsistent. I would have thought, anyway, that a list of articles is a category. It would save misunderstanding like today's edit request. --Stfg (talk) 15:13, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Merger proposal

I propose to merge Outline of search engines into this page, as almost all the content is the same for both. Jc86035 (talkcontributions) 11:09, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Note that the scope of outlines and lists differ. For example, Outline of sharks presents subtopics of the entire subject of sharks, while List of sharks lists species of shark. Links about breeding habits of sharks do not belong in the list, but fit naturally in the outline. The same applies to search engines. A list of names of famous search engine designers would fit within the scope of Outline of search engine, but would be out of place in a list of search engines. Outlines are a more general form of topics list, while Lists are item lists. The Transhumanist 20:01, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Only the section "specific search engines" was the same. The content of that section has been replaced by a link to this list. Problem solved. The Transhumanist 20:01, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Unlock this page

This page is locked. Like really? How controversial can a list of search engines possibly be to necessitate such a drastic move? I mean, I can understand the need for locking wikipedia pages such as, say, abortion or the holocaust or what not. But locking down a page about a list of available search engines? You people all are either completely ding-dong paranoid off your rockers, or you work for google and don't want people uploading alternatives.

Whatever the case keeping such a non-controversial page locked is an abuse of the wikipedia lock feature and an abuse of your powers as editors. Not to mention the article is a complete mess and NEEDS to be cleaned up which can't be done since you locked it. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU???

In September 2014, I have released a search engine that can search for images videos apps web torrents mp3 and maps. It's called ZendaSearch it's located at zendasearch.ca and zendasearch.com. It's also a mobile and handheld search engine. I would like it if you could post this Search Engine within your list of engines. Much appreciated. Contact me for more details.
