Choose to upgrade from Google.
There are many good reasons to do this and a few bad ones.
Do it for your skills, for the health of the web and for the planet
First, a quick explanation because it’s confusing to many people: the thing you use to browse the Internet is not a search engine. Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Safari গুলো these are web browsers. A browser is software that lets you visit any web page এবং and these companies often make money by selling your attention to the highest bidding search engine. Takes apples Billions Dollars per year from Google in exchange for taking you to their search engine.
And the reason Google bids so much is that they make an insane amount of money. Billions of dollars a year from serving ads and collecting your data from your search. That money has to come from somewhere.
You can change your search engine with just a few clicks. Watch a short video and find the links here.
Here’s what happens when you switch to Ecosia:
- You’ll find faster and less cluttered search results with far fewer ads.
- You will diversify the web, so SEO hacks will not be easy to grasp. Adam Savage is rattling about this.
- You will give less data about yourself and maintain more privacy.
- And! You will plant trees through a certified non-profit B Corporation … over 100,000,000 have been planted so far.
If you do not like the result, you can go back in two minutes.
Faster, free, and more convenient.
If you switch and then you forward it to five more people who switch, we will probably be able to plant another 100,000,000 trees next year. That’s a lot. If you change and spread the word, search results will be better and Google will start to do better knowing that they do not have an exclusive scale.
If you change, we all come forward. Share a question or experience here and I’ll share in a future post. PS I was not asked to post this or be compensated for doing so. I switched 9 months ago and I’m happy.
