Looking for a
Christian Alternative to Google?
Is there a search
engine like Google for Christians?
As far as we know, there is no 'Christian
Google' as such made by Google themselves (owned by them) - indeed
I very much doubt they would want to go down this route as they
are very much all things to all people and a Christian Google
would I'm sure be seen as politically incorrect by many. Google
want to keep a clean, non-biased image and Christianity certainly
doesn't sit on the fence on many issues!
So what's the nearest thing to a Christian
Google?... there are and have been for at least ten years quite
a large number of Christian
search engines and portals that
are designed specifically for Christians. I personally feel though,
that most fall down straight away since 90% of the Christian portals
contain Christian only websites, content pages and information.
Christians like everybody else need not only information specific
to their religion or specific beliefs, but information on everything
- and this - no Christian portal or website directory that is
purely for Christians does.
Here's some Christian search engines off
- Christian Search Engines
So in short - the Christian community has
yet to come up with it's own google... not really surprising g
the massive scale and complexity of Googles network and search
power.. any takers!!

Why Google is so Good!
rise of spamdexing in the mid 90's made leading search engines of
the time less useful, and the success of Google at both producing
better search results and combating keyword spamming, through its
reputation-based PageRank link analysis system, helped it become
the dominant search site late in the decade, where it remains. While
it has not been rendered useless by spamdexing, Google has not been
immune to more sophisticated methods either. Google bombing is another
form of web vandalism, which involves creating pages that directly
affect the rank of other sites...

Recently I’ve been working with libraries on something we’re
excited to announce for Google Scholar users. Libraries are fantastic
repositories of scholarship, and we want to make them as visible
and accessible as possible. We’ve just expanded our Library
Search program in Google Scholar to help people around the world
find works of their interest in local libraries. That program
now includes links to libraries in Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Portugal,
Sweden, and Switzerland. If
for example you're a student in Sweden searching Google Scholar
for [chemistry], you can click the “Library Search (Sweden)”
link underneath the book titled "Principles of polymer chemistry"
to see the list of Swedish libraries that hold the book. Then
just pay a visit to one of those libraries to reserve it. If you’re
outside Sweden, you can activate the Swedish library catalog links
from the "Library Links" box in the "Scholar preferences"
by searching for Sweden.
you are a library patron and can't find the books from your library,
ask your local library to participate in this program. If you
are a librarian and would like to work with us to help users find
scholarly literature in your library, please contact us. We'd
like to thank our union catalog partners for helping to make this
happen. Here's hoping researchers worldwide will use it to find
and build on the amazing collections in the world's libraries.
ones just a really fun site I found - not affiliated to google
a Christian search engine that resembles Google to some degree.
It has many 1000's of Christian websites spidered which includes
much or the burried pages within the sites. Here you can find
hundreds of articles and websites on Christian subjects as well
as a 'Church engine'! This contains around 2000+ churches around
Advertise a Christian google type website or services here email:

it here if we think it's ok.
