ALTERNATE SEARCH ENGINE OPTIONS:

I WAS REQUESTED TO SHARE SOME OF THE ALT SEARCH ENGINES I USE DAILY, THE FOLLOWING IS A SHORT LIST (there are more, but these I use most often): QWANT GIBIRU "Searx" has a page of "instances" where it appears on the web. (click the 1st link in this line to see the 'instances'.) The 'instance' I use most often is the SEARX OF BELGIUM. ALSO PLEASE NOTE:  

Learning to use modifiers to refine your search results is a big key to finding 'difficult/lost/hidden' results. While most of us know about using "quotation marks", there are a butt-load more modifiers, and you can find a lot of them HERE. 


Below this line is a series of other search functions that prove helpful when trying to find documents or other 'difficult to locate' files, articles or books etc:
