4 Moteurs de recherche alternatifs à découvrir

4 Moteurs de recherche alternatifs à découvrir | Tools and Applications | Scoop.it
Google est un moteur de recherche puissant. Nul doute. Quant à la suite d’outils proposée par la marque, là encore, rien à redire sinon que la plupart de ces outils, qu’il s’agisse de Google Maps en passant par la Search Console, nous sont très utiles au quotidien.

Il suffit même de prendre un peu de recul sur Google et ses services, pour réaliser combien il existe d’alternatives et combien ces dernières peuvent être efficaces ou apporter autre chose.

Un petit français qui commence à faire du bruit et des convaincu(e)s. Cependant, d’autres moteurs ont également éclos et proposent chacun leur petit plus, qui séduit déjà de nombreux internautes.

C’est d’ailleurs le premier argument utilisé par ses créateurs …
