Which search engine are you using?

DuckDuckgo (https://duckduckgo.com) shows mainly text results. Next to that they don't track their users it's a pretty good search engine. :)

Another alternative search engine is Startpage: https://www.startpage.com
It's private, based in Europe and subject to the strict European privacy laws. The search results come from Google. Not a lot of images and videos in the standard results.

In Google you can add -youtube to the search to omit Youtube videos in the results.
That's about all I can think off...

I don't use Yahoo because they think because I'm in Puerto Rico I want to see their stuff in Spanish - I prefer English.. The same goes for Bing. I could login and change my language preference but then they track me. No thanks.

I have used dogpile for years ! I think they merged with someone [Bing, not sure] But Bing likes to take over, even though my settings say to omit them. I feel heavily tracked now. I will try the above you suggested ! :smt006
