What are your fallback search engines (or alternative ones)?

e.g. if your first one is Google, and google is too personalized, or too smart for its own sake?

Also, what are your non-major search engines, for specialized use cases?

Primary search engine: DuckDuckGo
Primary fallback: local alternatives like Seznam.cz, Yahoo Japan, etc.
I use Google Images for images fallback (when I need to search by license)
Secondary fallback: Google

duckduckgo.com/ is pretty good it gives you private search without the tracking that google does.

  1. DDG relevancy is so bad that I stopped using it.
  2. Adapting for UX. In DDG, I can search within 1 month ago, and 1 year ago; but not in-between

I still use DDG for fallback, though.
