One of the objections people give me on the conservative side to Result Hunter is "what about freedom of speech, search engines should be unbiased" but this is a huge misunderstanding of how a search engine works. Let's iron that out.

Nature of a Search Engine

The goal of a search engine is to help users find information by indexing and organizing content available on the web. Search engines aim to provide relevant, true and reliable results based on the user's query, using algorithms that consider factors like keyword relevance, page authority, and user behavior. Their primary objective is to assist users in finding the most useful and accurate information available.

In other words, search engines are supposed to provide the "most useful and accurate information". No matter how much a search engine like Google, Bing, or DuckDuckGo will claim to be unbiased, their definition of useful and accurate will be extremely different from the definition that someone else holds.

The people who sign the engineer's paycheck are the people whose biases are used when defining "useful and accurate". Therefore, it's extremely important that you use a search engine in which you can pinpoint the biases through transparency, and find operators you trust.

The definition of "useful and accurate" if you hold and authoritative, leftist worldview is much different than if you hold a freedom-oriented, conservative worldview. Therefore I urge you to choose Result Hunter.

Freedom of Speech

When your speech exists on page 43, it might as well not exist. Search engines find the most relevant results, and all else is essentially ignored.

You have the freedom to publish your speech online, but unless the search engine ranks it nobody finds it. This is different than how social media should work. Social media should give you a real time view of people's speech on a timeline basis, rather than a relevance basis.

So you can think of it like this, search engines should be in the truth/accuracy game much like a library. Social media should be in the free speech game, giving you a platform to share what you're thinking.

We do provide "more freedom of speech" than the big, leftist search engines. The reason I say this is that we're not as fond of big, authoritative sources.

Big tech over-relies on their buddies at the content mills. Yes, many of the big leftist corporations that pump out tens of thousands of articles a year are content mills. And they themselves filter what you see to their authoritarian corporate narrative.

When an individual or small business goes out and says something, that's speech. When a huge corporation says something, that's propaganda. That's because a corporation is a governance structure, literally anything they say is in service to this "government", aka propaganda.

That's not to say we never rank from corporations, but the likelihood that's what you see is much smaller.
