About NotGoolag

NotGoolag is a search portal that is a synthesis of the searx metasearch engine and the YaCy peer-to-peer search index. Together, they make a powerful anti-censorship approach to searching the web.

About YaCy

YaCy is a free search engine that anyone can use to build a search portal for their intranet or to help search the public internet. When contributing to the world-wide peer network, the scale of YaCy is limited only by the number of users in the world and can index billions of web pages. It is fully decentralized, all users of the search engine network are equal, the network does not store user search requests and it is not possible for anyone to censor the content of the shared index. We want to achieve freedom of information through a free, distributed web search which is powered by the world's users.

Decentralization

Imagine if, rather than relying on the proprietary software of a large professional search engine operator, your search engine was run by many private computers which aren't under the control of any one company or individual. Well, that's what YaCy does! The resulting decentralized web search currently has about 1.4 billion documents in its index (and growing - download and install YaCy to help out!) and more than 600 peer operators contribute each month. About 130,000 search queries are performed with this network each day.

Installation is easy!

The installation takes only three minutes. Just download the release, decompress the package and run the start script. On linux you need OpenJDK7. You don't need to install external databases or a web server, everything is already included in YaCy.

About searx

Searx is a metasearch engine, aggregating the results of other search engines while not storing information about its users.

Why use searx?

If you do care about privacy, want to be a conscious user, or otherwise believe in digital freedom, make searx your default search engine or run it on your own server

Technical details - How does it work?

Searx is a metasearch engine, inspired by the seeks project.
It provides basic privacy by mixing your queries with searches on other platforms without storing search data. Queries are made using a POST request on every browser (except chrome*). Therefore they show up in neither our logs, nor your url history. In case of Chrome* users there is an exception, searx uses the search bar to perform GET requests.
Searx can be added to your browser's search bar; moreover, it can be set as the default search engine.

How can I make it my own?

Searx appreciates your concern regarding logs, so take the code and run it yourself!
Add your Searx to this list to help other people reclaim their privacy and make the Internet freer!
The more decentralized the Internet is, the more freedom we have!
