The Hated One : UPDATED research on this topic comparing Google's results with Yahoo, Bing and DuckDuckGo: This is focusing on how Google censors news and filters alternative and non-established websites and outlets.

MR. comic• ✅ : why google recommend me this video ¿ 😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅

Hendra Parwata : Its kind of ironic when people said they won't using google services anymore.. in a youtube comment

li-khriss team. Linux, GIMP y Windows. : I think the name is the problem, Duck Duck Go should switch to something like "Duck it" in order to increase their popularity.

Mohammad Alawadhi : The only reason I found this video is because google couldn't detect anti google speech through his thick accent.

The Kafkaesque Rider : Well, if Google is that bad why it's still your video up? Also, looks like algorithm liked this video, it was recommended to me after all

A.F.F : Hi (sorry for my bad English)

प्रियदर्शी : Combating propaganda...with a propaganda video. Weird.

atl3630 : We need laws in the US that protect personal privacy on the internet. They already have them in Europe. Why not here? Oh, because the government likes Google tracking you because they can also use that information.

James Pond : I really want to take this seriously but... 1. In your examples the search results were still pretty close 2. If I type a question like “is climate change a hoax” I want a broad spread of reputable articles pertaining to the validity of climate change, not necessarily articles that said the word hoax a lot. Google provided the information I was looking for, DDG gave me what was relevant to keywords. That said... The amount of tracking google does is fucking terrifying. Just because that information is being used (somewhat) responsibly now doesn’t mean they always will.

Sandeep Chiluveru : I have used both and I like Google a lot better. Google wants to know where you are because of its map services ..... amongst other reasons I am sure. Google maps are awesome life savers. So no point in complaining about google violating data privacy. It's buyer beware. However, I would like to continue with DDG as well. Google is a monopoly and that is never a good thing. We need to encourage DDG and other search engines to improve its services. Competition is always good for users.

SmartrMelons : You are not the consumer, you are the product.

Alex Chu : Google is evil

Sushant Aryal : Lets like, comment and share this video to make the YouTube algorithm destroy its parent company, google

Finn : need another video platform

Ejaz Ali : lol I am one of those people that does really care about online privacy, like take all you want, it isn't like some guy is checking through my browsing information and just laughing at the stupid comments I am writing.

Leonardo Filippini : question is: is it possible to stop being monitored by google while still using google services?

Calvin Kim : The "climate change is a hoax" search is more likely a result of Google's Pagerank technology than a filtering of search results. Just because an article contains a lot of the same key terms that you searched, doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be a quality article. That's why Google rates pages higher if other, popular pages link to that one more frequently. If you really want your search results on google to contain those keywords however, you can simply use quotation marks. The filtering of personal scandals and such from high celebrity figures might be true, but does that necessarily mean it's a bad thing? Consider the opposite: Anytime Bill Cosby or Louis CK is searched, the first 100 results are about their scandals just because those webpages were naturally ranked the highest in the Pagerank algorithm. Well now, we've forever ruined their name as a search term on Google, probably defaming them forever. I don't know about you, but I think that's more evil than painting a broader, or more diverse profile of a person who's been placed into a situation like that.

Arlotube : I bet they're tracking me after watching this video.

Aakash Pradhan : I saw this video at the top of my YouTube home page. If I were Google I would never promote it.

Bikko : Google gives me the best result for content I want. That's all I care about.

Cindy WH-Witter : I just downloaded the app and threw Google to the wind!

Will Lienert : The point he tries to make when searching up climate change, doesn't makes sense. All it explains is how Duck Duck Go's algorithm isn't as good at finding the results you searched for, as it is just searching for key words, while Google is actually trying to answer the question instead of just finding all the articles that say that global warming is a hoax. This whole video is trying to manipulate the facts, but try find one solid fact in this video that actually discredits Google.

lemon : it’s so hard to switch to duck duck go because literally everything in this world is either controlled by google or monitored by google. it’s scary honestly

Elliot Ripington : Feel as though any service provider that would have leverage regarding popularity and funding would become corrupt eventually.💰💀

Dani Etter : I love DuckDuckGo but the google search results are way more accurate. I search most of the time for PC problems and solutions and if I copy the error google hits it mostly on the first 3 results but DuckDuckGo misses my intention entirely.

FamilyCraft Dad : Ironically this was shown in my suggestions on the front page of YouTube. Take what you will from that. A lot of what was said here was knocking down straw men. Though I agree that Google has a bit more power than I feel comfortable with, some of your arguments aren't helpful. Searches based on purely key words, has proven to mislead people, and is a lazy approach to creating a search engine. Google didn't manually add those bits about climate change, their AI figured out that the question "is it a hoax" belonged to a larger topic, which was climate change, and then gave the user real answers. You literally showed that Google worked better, but then said it's not better because there's no way to have done that without meddling in the organic search... which is ignorant, search engine algorithms are so much smarter than that now, and the fact that duck duck go hasn't advanced far enough to answer that simple question, shows that they are only using "privacy" as a reason to not do better. Give me a product that can give me real results while still promoting privacy, THEN you'll have converted me.

DEEPAK SAINI : I have used ddg for a while, but its results are much worse than google. I have switched to bing recently, and to be honest, I am liking it.

ZionKube : use ecosia it grows treessssssssss

Fressh : Google's search algorithm is 100 times more refined and accurate than this alternative.. your points are invalid. And Google stores information about you too make search results based around things you have checked/accessed before, not to sell to some black market.

Sad / depressed : Oof Google still recommend it xD

SteveBelieve Guitar : I wouldn't say: censorship. I would say: _spying_

ShockDoctrin : Now Google can sell your biometric data, so if you ever used a thumb scan for a app they probably sold your fingerprints to the Red Chinese.

Hollywood In Hindi : love youy video. subscribed you. keep sharing.

wella : when youtube is owned by google.... lol

THE BEST HOBO : or maybe its cookies

Kim Jong Un : Thank you google for recommending it to me

Sharpshooter12345 : Google owns YouTube.

Saad Kashif : If Google is really biased and that is the reason why they are doing this. Why would they recommend this video to everyone?

Crimebodge : You had me right until the end when you assumed that everyone watching this is an American.

WOKEN'T : Yes, but DuckDuckGo is almost as bad in its own ways ... for instance, they brag openly about passionately supporting _Cunts Who Code_ (or some such gynocentrically-named organization) that is IMPLICITLY sexist, if not actively misandric. One day, probably in the FAR distant future, we'll have a search engine without any manipulation, censorship or agenda(s) _at all_ ... but it ain't today, and it sure as hell ain't DuckDuckGo.

J Davis : The "R" in Women stands for "Rights"!

Gary Williams UK : If you've nothing to hide then what's the problem. The real world is still available 24/7 for those that are worried about privacy. I wonder how my shares in Google are doing today? 😂🤣🤔

Mirik Kla : duck duck rullz

Cyka lasagna : It's true that Google tracks us. But it can be disabled in 'MyActivity'.

CheesecakeLasagna : Google also seems to look at the apps you use. I just started playing a game on my tablet, later on typed a pretty common keyword as the first few words then it predicted/autofilled it to be about the game.

MEN 101 : Great video! Using DuckDuckGo from now on.

Apo Pancakes : When it comes to scientific stuff I agree w google. Conspiracies only make ppl dumber. They have to learn the truth and not stories. But yeah our data is not secured.

Lemur Licker : You act like there's some sinister motive behind all this. There's one motive behind Google and the decisions they make. Profit. Why not include search suggestions that could promote slander or just give information to would be terrorists? Because advertisers wouldn't like it. You can still get results though. And that whole NASA thing? The title of the page is "Climate Change: How do we Know?".. that seems like a pretty relevant result to whether or not climate change exists. Why does it gather so much data on us and alter our results personally? To serve the consumer. The more we use it, the more we click on, the more Google makes from ads. It's incentive is to give us results suited to us. I understand the argument of bubbles, but you could just as easily keep yourself in one without targeted results. It's your responsibility to challenge your ideas and seek other perspectives. It doesn't serve an ideology, it serves you. It learns about you to work better for you. And why take just so much info? To learn how to be more useful, better its services, and develop AI. It's all about trying to better serve the consumer. Capitalism is at play, not some dystopian conspiracy.

El Presidente : For the record I need to clarify that climate change is not a hoax
