Happy New Year! If you are like the rest of use, we all use Google as a tool in our everyday search. We use it for research, finding best deals, local businesses and many more. The second most popular search engine, Microsoft Bing, has not enjoyed the same success as Google. Most people prefer to first go to Google before event thinking about Bing. According to the digital market intelligence company, SimilarWeb, Bing only has 1.3 billion monthly visitors compared to Google’s 43.5 billion monthly visitors. Whether it is Google or Bing, most search engines collect your private information without your permission. They even use “cookies” to keep track of your searches and eventually profiting from it.
