In an 18-month study, German security company AV-Test tried out four different search engines. Out of those four (Google, Bing, Yandex, and Blekko), Google was the champion.


Google is, at its core, a search company. It’s what got them to where they are, and what continues to earn them the bulk of their revenue. Google is also committed to being a ‘mobile first’ company, which makes quite a bit of sense when you have the #1 mobile platform in Android in your back pocket. Then, if we consider Google Glass, which could be poised to have a very search-centric user interface, these new findings could be troubling.
