How can I boycott Google?
I've struggled in my quest to boycott Amazon. I've made great progress & have achieved a lot. I have to accept goods are likely to take longer to arrive using play.com or discogs. Buying directly from bands' websites has been informative. Overall, I've actually saved money on my purchases and I've bought fewer items (believe it or not!). Occasionally, there is no alternative and Amazon has to be used but, even then, I only ever buy from the vendors.
I was feeling rather pleased with myself. Now, I discover Google is 'evil' and I'm flummoxed. I use the search engine constantly. I don't actually 'buy' anything from them. I presume they only make money from me by making them popular with advertisers or people who want to be bumped up the picking lists. I am at a loss as to how I could boycott them.
Are there any other search engines worth a candle? Or are there any other ways I can disrupt their business model, however small?
