DDG has a peering agreement with Yahoo, making it arguably just as bad as Google.

Use Startpage, or hell - fucking Yandex.

DDG ditched yahoo.

DDG actually uses yandex now.

Doesn’t Startpage anonymously query Google for your search, y’know, the company that has been proven to be manipulating search results to fit the leftist narrative? Not that DDG is any better…

It's an aggregate, so while Googles search results are part of Startpage's results, they aren't limited to Googles results and thus evade Googles censorship.

I don't get the usual barrage of (badly) disguised advertisement when I search with StartPage instead of "googling" it, but it's only a week since I started using it.

Yandex is unbelievably good for Russian sites but still "meh" for English results. I wish they improved the English results, then they would easily compete with google.

They shared the technical details of the peering agreement and it still maintains user privacy and doesn't allow yahoo to track you.
