Dear Mr. Eich, please save the internet.
This is great news. My wife and I both were on the trial phase though I think only she really utilized it. Just tried a few searches with the Beta and it seems better than the others.

If you type in "daily stormer" it puts the actual link below 15 hit pieces with the splc being the top result.

A search for Nick Fuentes does the same except when you finally find his website, the splc link is right beside it.

Brave search is trash. It won't be long until a search for holohoax doesn't turn up anything decent.

Apparently they purchased a search engine (Tailcat) instead of building from scratch. I'm not technical enough to comment beyond that. We'll have to wait and see.

Don't count it out just yet. If you go into the settings, you can see where they mention they're using anonymous Google fallback mixing. Basically this means they are including anonymized search results from Google because their own indexes have not been fully built (something that will occur as more people start using it). This might be why the results currently look the way they do. You can turn off the fallback mixing in your personal settings.

I did a search for "dailystormer.su" and it was the top result. The more people start clicking on direct link to the Stormer, the more it will train the search engine algorithm to rank those results higher.

Doesn't matter. Most search engines use the google search results, they might not be the most up to date but they do. Even that Russian search engine all the spergs on OneAngryGamer liked to use. It used pretty much the same search results. Google has been around since the late 90's. The first time I saw Google was back in 1998 at a friends house when I was still a teenager living in Baltimore. His dad built this computer out of parts he bought at a flea market and we were messing with. It had a modem and they were using some kind of thing that offered free internet access.

I think it was Blue Light. Basically a free internet service that was run by Kmart. I think he got the disc in the mail or someone gave it to him.

I remember when there was multiple search engines. Google, Yahoo search, Ask Jeeves now called Ask, Bing is a bit newer and there is duck duck go. They all basically use some version of the Google search results. Google is basically the normie search engine. I don't see that changing any time soon with phrases like "let me google that for you "and just google it". Google isn't going to let the competition advertise on their platforms. I don't think I have ever seen a Brave browser ad on YouTube.

But any competition is welcome. But Google would have to go out of business for any alternative to rise to the top.

If they are using Bert and have allowed bots of some sort across a lot of public text...it should improve eventually. If they are trying to get big Corps to link with it along with ad-space...then the interesting stuff will probably drop off.

Brave isn't generating these results.

I don't know where they're coming from.

Obviously, five year old news articles are not more popular than DS.su. But it is not believable that someone at Brave manually curated that. The results have to be from somewhere else.

I don't know enough about how this works to know what is going on, but I don't think that is necessarily disqualifying.

Yeah, I should have read down before commenting.

Every engine besides Google has .su as the top result for "daily stormer," so those results only could have come from Google, which, at the behest of ADL, manually delinked me and put a bunch of inflammatory/defamatory bullshit in the top 15 links.

There is zero chance that Brave said "now, before we launch the beta, we need to bury Daily Stormer under 15 links of insults."

I have not been able to get onto the forum for the past three days. Kept saying "file error".

I was recently doing some research into some non-controversial topics and needed to access "images" and pictures with my Google search.
The results were abysmal and using Yandex did provide me with a lot more of what I needed than Google.

Do remember that Stormer was mentioned in the halls of Congress as being a threat to all humanity.

I thought that TailCat was supposed to be the Brave search engine. In fact, I'm signed up to preview it when it debuts. But I haven't checked my Gmail account in like three days. LOL Where is muh email Brave?

Yeah...it looks like it is trying to NLP keywords in Meme/Reddit/Popular MSM blogs first for rankings. The Bot is harvesting only "Safe Spaces" right now for ranking. Basically Junking any kind of truth in the MSM and not touching local news reports:

Typed in "Black male seen fleeing" -- got this as a first hit:
------------------
Sep 22, 2016 - A Massachusetts court rules that a history of racial bias in police searches makes it reasonable for black men to flee.

Uh... duckduckgo?
Owned by Jews and believed to be false opposition. They just pull results from Bing, so it's more or less a mirror. Supported by establishment media and institutions too.

DDG mo is "oh God ads! No not ads!" instead of anti-censorship.

I immediately tried that exact same thing before trying anything else, and got a bunch of SPLC trash and that Atlantic article where they accuse Anglin of a bunch of ridiculous shit. Brave search is indeed, already, trash. Exact same results as Google.
