Google’s monopoly on information is near hegemonic. If you concerned about search neutrality, privacy, propaganda and censorship, then, as suggested in this viral video on YouTube, it may be time to find alternatives to Google.

Whether you agree with China or not, there is a reason why they ban Google+, Google News, Gmail, Blogger, Blogspot, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and nearly all porn from their citizens. The potential for mind control and moral corruption is enormous. China decided to let its native platforms develop without Western influence and they are succeeding in capturing traffic on platforms such as baidu.com, QQ.com, Taoboa.com, Alipay.com, and Youku.com. But China has its own restrictions and limited tolerance for freedom.

In an effort to set ourselves free from Google, let us start with the most obvious, the number 1 website and search engine in the world: Google.com.

7 Reasons Why I Switched from Google to Bing:

1. I don’t trust Google’s “suggestions” any more. Here’s PROOF of Google’s bias.

Here is an example of a test search of the words “how can you vote”. Pay attention to Google’s first suggestion.

1 Google Vote 183x300 Is Googles Information Monopoly Too Dangerous? | Search Engines Compared by Steve Cioccolanti  Google’s top suggestion is intended to mind mould you and guide your behavior to follow what Google’s elites want you to do: “how can you vote illegally”! REALLY, Google? This is proof of leftist bias.

The next two suggestions are, “How can you vote for miss universe” and “how can you vote for the grammys.” Compare these results to alternative browsers Bing and DuckDuckGo. First, Bing:

2 Bing How to Vote 186x300 Is Googles Information Monopoly Too Dangerous? | Search Engines Compared by Steve Cioccolanti  Bing’s first suggestion shows something I have never seen before, which is a conservative bias: “how to vote liberal WA”. In Western Australia (WA), the “Liberal Party” are the conservatives, although our conservative is not nearly as conservative as American Republicans or Libertarians.

The next two suggestions by Bing are neutral: “how to vote in western australia” and “how to vote”. The fourth suggestion is surprisingly conservative again: “how to vote one nation wa”. In Australia, One Nation led by Pauline Hanson is the nationalist, pro-Australian, anti-Islamic invasion party. Never would Google give such suggestions.

DuckDuckGo promises to show the same search results to everybody. Here’s their result on “how to vote”:

3 DuckDuckGo Vote 173x300 Is Googles Information Monopoly Too Dangerous? | Search Engines Compared by Steve Cioccolanti  I went further in my search to see if any alternative search engine would encourage illegal voting, a tactic of the socialist / globalist left.

After typing “how to vote ille”, I found Bing refused to give me the suggestion: “how to vote illegally.” Instead, Bing suggested: “how to vote lilley,” “how to vote election 2016,” “how to vote election,” “how to vote electronically in usa”.

4 Bing How to Vote Illegally 185x300 Is Googles Information Monopoly Too Dangerous? | Search Engines Compared by Steve Cioccolanti  Doing the same search in DuckDuckGo, I found DuckDuckGo will suggest the searcher to do something illegal upon typing: “how to vote il”.

5 DuckDuckGo Vote 174x300 Is Googles Information Monopoly Too Dangerous? | Search Engines Compared by Steve Cioccolanti

DuckDuckGo suggests: “how to vote illinois” first, then “how to vote illegally” second. For this reason, my preference is to use Bing.

6 Google Vote Illegally 173x300 Is Googles Information Monopoly Too Dangerous? | Search Engines Compared by Steve Cioccolanti  Google is the worst of all, even suggesting where to vote illegally: in the left-wing state of California! For truthers with eyes opened, Google’s agenda / propaganda is hardly subtle.


2. I don’t like being data mined.

Google is constantly data mining your personal information, tracking and targeting you with ads. If surveillance wasn’t taken for granted, Google would be the creepy guy you take to court for stalking you! For me it has reached the point of seriously invasive.

3. I get better search results on Bing.

Over time, Google searches have become less relevant and demand that I “drill down” to get pass what Google wants me to see and get to what I really want.

There are 2 things I constantly search for are: videos and images. When I search for videos on Google, too often I get “suggestions” of videos which are not what I want, such re-posts by third parties or trolls. I feel like walking through an Internet swamp that needs to be drained.

Search a video title you’re looking for on Bing and Bing will more likely point to the source, the original creators’ channel, even when you don’t type the word “youtube” or “vimeo” or “video”. Although YouTube is owned by Google and is a “competitor”, Bing search results will display YouTube first if that’s most relevant, so I find it to be more honest than Google.

4. I get faster search results on Bing.

On a daily basis I search for news and images, and find Google results “control the story” and offer me images with watermarks or images to buy. My team and I already buy images from our paid subscription with another service. We don’t need Google to keep distracting our research with ads ad nauseam. PC World Senior Editor, who goes by the name of Mark Hackman, did a testing of different search engines and reported:

“Bing was first to implement the ‘infinite scroll’ in Bing Images, where users could simply scroll and scroll and never reach the ‘end’ of their search results. Today, Bing’s image search adds an extra layer of search filters that Google users must drill down to find, including options to show only pictures with faces, for example, or display images in a particular layout. And if you need to find a licensed photo to illustrate a newsletter, Bing makes that information more easily accessible than Google does.”[1]

5. I want to find other sites besides Google-approved, Google-owned websites.

Understandably Google plugs its own brands like YouTube and Blogspot, but even when another video streaming platform or blog domain is more popular and more relevant?

Come on. I’ve tested this by searching videos posted on non-Google-operated websites and disappointingly Google won’t display those websites at all. Bing does a better job at finding relevant websites from across the entire Internet, not merely Google-approved sites.

6. I would like a human to give me customer service.

Google’s customer service is one of the worst by IT industry standards. You might not know it until you’re a content creator for Google, like I am on YouTube. Google cannot generate ad revenues without high quality content producers like myself working very hard, therefore they should pay attention to our feedback.

But they don’t. I admit it is a love-hate relationship. On the one hand, Google gives creators like me a worldwide platform on YouTube. On the other hand, their service stinks. Either they are understaffed or have grown so rich that they simply don’t care about the little guy.

YouTube Silver Aware to Discover Ministries 291x300 Is Googles Information Monopoly Too Dangerous? | Search Engines Compared by Steve Cioccolanti Steve Cioccolanti YouTube Aware Here is a plaque Google’s YouTube sent me for exceeding 100,000 subscribers on our ministry’s YouTube Channel. Despite the recognition, my team and I can barely get a human response from YouTube. When they de-monetize us (as a common form of censoring), we have asked for their official policy so we can stay within their guidelines, but they offer us none.

The entire process of Google, including their search algorithm, has been kept mysterious to the best IT experts and their most loyal customers. I’ve inquired internal Google employees whether they understand their company’s customer process and they tell me it is a mystery.

One of the goals of our Christian ministry (Discover Ministries) is to redeem technology for the glory of God, therefore we interact with many IT professionals from various companies, and none have been as slow and as unresponsive as Google’s.

7. Siri, Apple’s voice assistant, uses Bing by default to search the Internet when you ask her questions.

Good enough for me!

Those are my 7 reasons why I am leaving Google’s search engine for Bing. You should stop “googling” and start “Binging”.

I'm a YouTube Creator with over 125,000 subscribers, creating Christian content for YouTube, Newswars.com.au, Cioccolanti.org and other outlets. I've authored 4 books, many blog articles, and hundreds of DVDs available at http://www.discover.org.au/bookshop.I was born in Thailand to a family of Buddhists, Catholics, Methodists, and Muslims, which gives me an uncommon perspective on people, religion and geopolitics. I love traveling, having been to over 40 countries, mostly as a public speaker. Educated up to Masters degree level in Thailand, Australia, America, France, Canada and UK, I offer a unique perspective on Eastern vs Western cultures.Please do not attempt to respond to my comments about God, Christ or Christianity until you thoroughly understand my position. Christianity in the East has had virtually none of the censoring, politicking and internal persecution typical of Western culture, yet few critics in the West acknowledge or understand the differences between these European propensities and real Christianity. Culture can be our strength; culture can make us blind.My home church, where I am senior pastor, is Protestant Christian, international in composition, unaffiliated with European denominations, native to Australia, and puts Jesus and the Bible above men's traditions. Please pop into Discover Church when you’re in Australia. I'm a happily married husband, father of two, a friend of Jesus and friend of sinners. Feel free to Facebook or Twitter me.
