Yes, I totally agree that Startpage (and ixquick also) is a better search engine than DuckDuckGo.

Not only does it also have image and video search, but most importantly: search by date. I use this all the time when looking for Puppy info, because pages older than, say, 2010, are often completely outdated. For some subjects even older than 1 year means outdated...

The question is how to create a permanent Puppy Search Page based on Startpage or ixquick. I did not succeed setting the domains. It looks as if they do not allow it..( at least to my layman eyes) I've written to the company two days ago, asking for help, but no reply yet.

Another great search engine is the German non-profit Metager.

Weebly (free version) has a very simple statistics tool, showing the page hits and total amount of unique visitors, and no more...I cannot track you guys! Shocked

I don't know how reliable these statistics are, but at least a trend has become visible since the day I started it Rolling Eyes Laughing

In most cases the murga forum search here works to find what is needed .
But very often too much and if there are special chars like underscore much too much irrelevant hits .

Today it did not found , so I used the old well known search http://www.wellminded.com/puppy/pupsearch.html that found a 100% hit at first place .

Then I used http://www.koulaxizis.com/pupsearch.html and also here the first hit was the same 100% hit as above .

Have added to the bookmark toolbar now :
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PuppyLinuxSearchEngine

But for common developing Google is the best search engine for me compared to Yahoo and Bing .

If you bookmark https://startpage.com/do/search?q=host%3Awww.murga-linux.com%2F it brings up a search of the Puppy Forum, which you can refine by adding your keywords after host:www.murga-linux.com/.

Hey jrb,

That's a good solution! It's not the most elegant, but at least it works. Thank you very much!

One thing to remember: you have to leave a space between host:www.murga-linux.com/ and the keyword(s) you're searching for.

e.g.
Code:

 host:www.murga-linux.com/Barry

will result in:
Code:
Your search - host:www.murga-linux.com/Barry - did not match any documents.


but
Code:
 host:www.murga-linux.com/ Barry


will give 1340 results in 0.11 seconds...

Great stuff, bookmarked.
Thanks again!

Until we find a nicer solution, I've put jrb's idea in my signature.
