About yacy.everdot.org

This is a custom-configured Searx metasearch engine which, unlike most Searx instances, has the global YaCy network as the primariy search result source. Both Searx and Yacy are free software under a GNU GPL license.

Please Be VERY Patient

Many of the servers in the global YaCy network are extremely slow. Some will crunch a minute or more before they present any results. Our YaCy node is patched to drop connections and present results after five seconds. This is (for most way beyond) the limit of how long it is reasonable to wait for a search result.

Privacy

Datamining is a huge industry which most larger corporations participate in. We don't.

Do note and be ware that we do share your search queries with several sources in real time!

There is no way around this, searching sources like Mojeek, wikichip, wikispooks, the global yacy network and so forth is hard to do without sharing search requests with those sources. Keep that in mind when you use this service.
