Whoogle Search: a self-hosted search engine


We provide a number of utilities, including tools to increase your productivity, help you manage your workflow, and much more. The table at the bottom of this page lists the utilities in this series. Although Google controls the desktop, its products and services are widespread, don't get us wrong. We have long been fans of various Google items and services. Despite all its advantages, trusting a specific company has its disadvantages. Google's offerings are often high-quality, easy to use, and "free," but there are issues with their privacy policies, company behaviors, and their desire to manipulate all of our data at all times. An example of concern with their privacy policies is that if you want to escape the Google ecosystem and move towards online freedom, where you will not be continually tracked, monetized and connected to the Google ecosystem, you may want to Try Whoogle Search. It has exactly the same results as Google Search but with much more privacy.

Whoogle Search is a privacy-focused search engine. Shows the same results as Google Search, but without ads/sponsored content, JavaScript, cookies, or tracking.

To be able to test this Whoogle Search, the first thing to do is install it, for this we must use docker, which you must have previously installed on your system for the following commands to work:

docker pull benbusby/whoogle-search

After this, the next command to run is:

docker run --publish 5000:5000 --detach --name whoogle-search benbusby/whoogle-search:latest

Once this is done, we will be able to test in our Web navigator favorite how Whoogle works. To do this, you just have to put the following URL in the address bar of the web browser:


Then the search engine logo and the search bar will appear to start using it. You also have various settings like interface language, search language, etc.
