Search Engines That Don’t Track Queries
The infograhic starts out by providing a couple of options for people who are looking to search the web without their search queries being tracked. The infographic compares both DuckDuckGo.com and Bleeko.com and concludes that DuckDuckGo is the best service to use for users looking for a search engine that does not track search history.
