YaCy 1.80.20140916.9000

A peer-to-peer software created for web search
YaCy is a free search engine that anyone can use to build a search portal for their intranet or to help search the public internet. When contributing to the world-wide peer network, the scale of YaCy is limited only by the number of users in the world and can index billions of web pages. YaCy offers you the possibility to integrate it as portal for your webpage using a source code. 
Imagine if, rather than relying on the proprietary software of a large professional search engine operator, your search engine was run by many private computers which aren't under the control of any one company or individual. Well, that's what YaCy does!

It is fully decentralized, all users of the search engine network are equal, the network does not store user search requests and it is not possible for anyone to censor the content of the shared index. We want to achieve freedom of information through a free, distributed web search which is powered by the world's users.

Main features:

  • Find information on the web that other search portals hide.
  • Hide your search requests, prevent that anyone can log your search queries in clear text. Privacy is important.
  • Join a community of independent YaCy users, share your web index and use the distributed search network for a uncensored, user-driven web search.
  • You can run your own web search poral, either only for yourself or as public search portal in the internet
  • Provide a search function for your own web pages or your intranet.
  • Nobody else than you can censor your web search, because there is no central server that could apply a global filter.
  • Search results are better if you define your own search domain, and search within that domain. With YaCy you can feed in the domains that host expert information for your search.
