A lot of the smaller search engines depend on the big search portals anyway. Startpage is basically a re-skinned Google and duckduckgo is yahoo and a bunch of others.

We might have viable libre alternatives to reddit, facebook and twitter, but search engines need to scour the entire internet so they require a hell of a lot more resources to get going.

Do you guys even care if google lists you in their results? If I search raddle.me there, the site doesn't even have a description. And if I search just for 'raddle', it doesn't find the site at all.

If they're removing leftist sites from their results anyway, there's no point in pursing a Google ranking. Word of mouth is the only promotion that works if you're not a giant corporation anyway.
