By Any Chance Can We Create Search Engine Like Google

By any chance can we create search engine like google?
back in 2000, when I'm in University, I remember that the biggest search engine is either yahoo or altavista. So when I want to search for paper, etc. I go to that site, but who knows that altavista now is almost gone, yahoo is not that big anymore, so, Are there someone out there that can make something compete with google?

You don't like Google it seems, I thought that you have an idea to build a search engine platform like Google, But when you said Mercedez or BMW, then i came to know that you just want to know something. Google can be replaced, but it is highly not possible.

Building a search engine has been tried by many companies with big investors but either Google bought them out early or there idea's of a search engine didn't work out and it was no longer worth it to invest to compete with Google.

No, It's not what I mean. I love google very much. It's make my life easier. But, my point is it's better that as a user we have at least 1 competitor, that will make the service even better. Like can you imagine if in the world we only have Fedex, and UPS not exist? Or Mercedez to BMW? Or KFC to McD?

I believe that competition make life better

The alternative search engine I like is this one. https://duckduckgo.com/

Still I rely on Google everyday but I have a 2nd favorite.

duckduckgo is a really useful alternative. If you are talking about building your own search engine it definitely is possible but incredibly hard.

Try to break down the steps to being as simple as possible. You could first try to create a bot that crawls the top 1 million sites on alexa, and indexes them, and then write a program that searches that indexed data.

It likely will be slower and harder to update, but if you come up with a brilliant variation that google doesn't do it it could be very valuable.

I think it is impossible, not because of the technique, but because Google are too familiar to people, so that there may be nothing can replace it. I though Microsoft's Bing had enough potential, but you could see the result, where Bing is now

The amount of resources needed to simply index the entire web would probably take millions of dollars, not to mention the man-hours needed to write an algorithm to even come close to competing with Google. It's not impossible, but you'd be better off trying to solve other problems in the world.
