Very nice research!

BS, if they are filtering anything they filter you away from the results you're looking for. I've done "obama" as a search and not once did FOX news ever come up on the first page. I'm always having to dig past the first page. They aren't tailoring the search for you as much as they are trying to direct your search, more or less censoring the internet.
Want better search results? Want big daddy to stop tracking you? It's creepy, no? Boycott big brother DuckDuckGo
that was the longest most social media friendly ad i've ever seen. and i almost fell for it too...
Alternative method! Clear your history and log out. Problem solved.
Here, buy some Chewlie's Gum.
My contention is that searching has become strange and way more difficult for purposes I haven't been able to figure out myself. It takes me three times as long to find sites featuring what I'm looking for than it did even just a couple of years ago, even when I put things in quotes and get really specific on all different engines. I figured it was marketing influence of some kind. It just sucks.
How is it that hard to break the bubble? Like with the Egypt results, they are vague...just trying to tailor to your interests. If you wanted to get results about Egypt Travel, search for that.

Don't bubble me bro
"Was pretty okay until they tried to throw some new search engine at me. Was also less interested because none of my search results were biased any which way, it was reputable sources like online encyclopedias."
Obviously it's showing you a liberal bias towards facts.
If you think you already know the answer and you search a bit more, they agree with you, then you will think they are always right.
You keep getting what you think are right answers, you will trust them.
First link, if you feel like reading all of the boxes is saying that every one will get different results on the same search of key words from the same search engines.
Second link is a search engine that they report to give clean unfiltered results.
Depending on what the search engine knows about you the engine can alter the info it gives you.
Simple IP address. If you search from Ontario and I search from British Colombia, the engine knows your approximate area you are in. (not precise unless they contact your internet service provider and find who had that IP address at that time you were searching)
If you have searched for things to do with the Liberal party in the past, and have not cleared you cookies, and I have searched for things about the Conservative party, it will display different results, not usually different in the first "hit" but often down the page.
