It’s no secret that Google rules the online search world, but there are other options available.

What’s more, some of these alternative search engines are hugely popular in their own right – they just don’t appear very popular when compared to the colossal titan that is Google.

Here are the top search engines in the world.

The Best Search Engine in The World: Google

Worldwide Search Engine Market Share: 92.18%

It’s difficult to comprehend Google’s epic size.

The search engine is so popular that it’s many times larger than all of the world’s other search engines combined.

Specifically, Google currently holds a whopping 92.18 percent of the worldwide search engine market share.

The company has developed many other software solutions such as Google Drive. It owns YouTube, has developed a line of smartphones and laptops, and has even created self-driving cars. Google also powers other search engines – including Ask, which is the sixth-largest search engine in the world.

Search Engine #2. Bing

Worldwide Search Engine Market Share: 8.04%

Bing is the second largest search engine in the world with an 8.04 percent market share

While Bing is small in comparison to Google, it maintains a respectable market share in many countries. The search engine is owned and operated by Microsoft and has its origins in the previous search engines MSN Search and Windows Live Search.

In July 2009, Microsoft and Yahoo! announced a deal in which Bing would power Yahoo!’s search engine – which is currently the fourth largest search engine in the world.

Businesses shouldn’t disregard this search engine.

Although it doesn’t have as many users as Google, Bing still receives 1.3 billion visits per month.

Search Engine #3. Baidu

Worldwide Search Engine Market Share: 7.34%

Meet Baidu, the third-largest search engine with a 7.34 percent market share.

This search engine is China’s largest. In fact, Baidu absolutely dominates the Chinese market with 74.73 percent of the market as of February 2019. In comparison, Google has managed to capture only 2 percent of China’s search engine market.

Search Engine #4.Yahoo!

Worldwide Search Engine Market Share: 3.39%

Yahoo! Lands fourth place in the list of the world’s largest search engines with a 3.39 percent share of the global market.

Yahoo!’s story is as interesting as it is embarrassing.

The company was founded way back in 1994 by Jerry Yang and David Filo.

They originally named the website, “Jerry and David’s Guide to the World Wide Web,” before quickly renaming it Yahoo!, which stands for “Yet Another Hierarchical Organized Oracle.”

Search Engine #5. Yandex

Worldwide Search Engine Market Share: 1.53%

Yandex scores the fifth position on the list of the top 10 search engines with a global market share of 1.53 percent.

It’s the most popular search engine in Russia with 55% of total Russian search traffic, closely followed by Google. The search engine is also popular in Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Turkey.

Yandex provides more than 70 different services, including tools such as Yandex Disk, a cloud-based storage service similar to Google Drive.

The name “Yandex” was adopted in 1993 and stands for “Yet Another iNDEXer.”

Search Engine #6. Ask

Worldwide Search Engine Market Share: 0.72%

Ask is the sixth largest search engine in the world with a 0.72 percent market share – 100 times smaller than Google and 10 times smaller than Bing.

Founded in 1996 by Garrett Gruener and David Warthen in California, the site was originally named “Ask Jeeves.”

The idea was not to create another directory or search engine, but a question-and-answer service much like a virtual concierge. This is why the founders chose the name after P.G. Wodehouse’s character, Jeeves the butler.

The company dropped “Jeeves” from the name in 2006 when the company rebranded to “Ask.”

Search Engine #7. DuckDuckGo

Worldwide Search Engine Market Share: 0.39%

DuckDuckGo is the seventh largest search engine with a 0.39 percent share of the global market.

This search engine is all about privacy.

These days, there are countless Google privacy concerns. The giant is well-known to track, monitor, and collect reams of data about its users.

So if you feel a little uneasy about your data being harvested and stored, or you don’t like targeted advertising, you might want to give DuckDuckGo a chance.

The search engine’s tagline is “Privacy, simplified.”

Search Engine #8. Naver

Worldwide Search Engine Market Share: 0.13%

Introducing Naver, the eighth most successful search engine in the world with a 0.13 percent market share.

This popular Korean search engine holds 75 percent of the market share in South Korea. As a result, it’s often referred to as “The Google of South Korea.”

Naver began in 1999 as the first web portal in Korea to develop and use its own search engine. Today, the Naver corporation provides a multitude of services, such as an email client, encyclopedia, children’s search engine, and news web portal.

Search Engine #9. AOL

Worldwide Search Engine Market Share: 0.06%

AOL currently holds just 0.06 percent of the world’s search engine market share. This is surprising when you consider that AOL was once an internet trailblazer.

AOL – short for “America Online” – first came into existence way back in 1985.

The web portal and online service provider based in New York City was one of the early pioneers of the internet in the mid-1990s.

It originally provided a dial-up service, web portal, email, and instant messaging.

Search Engine #10. Seznam

Worldwide Search Engine Market Share: 0.05%

Last on our list of the top search engines in the world is Seznam.

This search engine and web portal is hugely popular in the Czech Republic. In fact, it was the leading search engine there until Google came along.

Today, Google holds 84 percent of the Czech Republic’s market share, leaving only 16 percent to Seznam and others.
