Google is a very good search engine. I prove can prove my point because I found debate on google! It is also very safe. So in turn, Google is the best search engine.

I would like to thank my opponent for starting this debate.

*definitions*

best- excelling all others[1]
search engine- computer software used to search data (as text or a database) for specified information; also : a site on the World Wide Web that uses such software to locate key words in other sites[2]

Through this debate I will show how Google is not only not the best search engine but that it is also not safe in anyway shape or form.

If you look at the image at link [3] you will see an image of a search made on Google images of the word pole, now of course you can imagine that some not so appropriate pictures came up, and if you look you will see that this search was made in moderate safe search. However I then proceeded to do the search under the "strict" criteria and still yet some inappropriate came up[4]. I then proceeded to do an image search for "pole" on Bing and as you can see in link [6] far less inappropriate images came up.

Now as I assume that the first thing you are going to do in response to my position is to argue that I purposely searched a word that would come up with some pictures that you cant quite consider safe. So link [7] provides you with a search of the north pole. Link [8] provides you with a search of Mrs. Claus. Link [9] for the word hi. All of these done on Google with moderate safe search on. There are many more that I can provide you with but it seems that this proves that Google is in now way safe, even with safe search enabled. There are many other search engines such as Bing that will provide you with much safer options.

Ok. those Pictures are preaty graphic. Though, People are sometimes just put inapropriate things. SO I think that some people just use google for there own inapropriate things. ( This is my first debate on this website and i am new to debating so dont make fun of me.)

My opponent has failed to refute any point that I have made therefore I am lead to believe that he is conceding this debate. He also states: "SO I think that some people just use google for there own inapropriate things." If Google was really the best search engine then why would there be things such as this, I think not.

If my opponent proceeds to refute my points in the next round then I shall proceed to post the following arguments.
1)Google plagiarism (or phishing)
2)Google traffic view
3)More and more and more Google safety flaws.

Pro gave up too easily. He should have looked at things like the number of hits and the time to respond for various search phrases, also the ordering of hits with the best sites near the top of the list. The argument against about safety could have been countered that nothing harmful or dangerous was turned up by either search engine. Pole dancers are only slightly naughty, not dangerous.
