When talking about the web queries related to our daily routine or some specific task, luckily we have top search engines, just go to any search engine, put some keywords and get your desired information in the form of audio, video, text, and even images across the globe in few seconds.
It seems to be easy, but It may cost a lot for a search engine to crawl hundreds and even thousands of web pages to blow up our desired results on our screen. Every day hundreds of web pages are added, and it is the search engine crawlers and bots to scan every web page and gather the required search results.
You might think that Google is the only search engine due to its popularity and use but you will be surprised with other lesser-known search sources also. Being a normal search user, Google is enough, but when talking about webmasters and bloggers, they may need to check the search rankings of their pages and the competitors in other search engines also. So it is necessary to know the search status of your pages at other search engine results also because millions of queries are being made from other search engines other than Google and Microsoft Bing.
To fulfill the requirement, I have compiled some of the important search engines and their search data for better search results and to check search engine rankings.
