Zeekly.com protects your privacy as an alternative to Google, Yahoo and Bing
The site does not store metadata on its users: Internet users worldwide were shocked in June of this year when it was disclosed by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden that companies such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, Facebook and Twitter were being forced to secretly give the United States government metadata on their users.
Metadata includes information such as a users unique device IP address, the keywords they search on the internet, and the sites they visit. That's when Florida entrepreneur Jeffrey Sisk decided it was time to act, and Zeekly.com was born.
Zeekly.com is a worldwide search engine that protects privacy. The site does not store metadata on its users, and the site is running on 2048-bit SSL encryption. By not storing metadata, there's "nothing for the government to get" because historical data on Zeekly users doesn't exist, and by using high grade SSL encryption, Zeekly has assured that your internet provider and/or cell phone company isn't recording your metadata, either because communication between your computer/phone/tablet and Zeekly's servers is encrypted (and it was disclosed by Edward Snowden that all major cell phone providers are under court order to give their metadata to the US government, also).

In a recent interview, Zeekly's CEO, Jeffrey Sisk, said: "Many of us rely on the Internet for many things. We find information, solve problems, pursue our interests, read news, make purchases, and socially connect with like minded people around the world. This is highly personal information. Granting access to American spy agencies to this level of information on American citizens is the most egregious assault on our constitutional rights regarding illegal search and seizure in the history of our country. "As one of the original authors of the Patriot Act recently put it, they never intended the law to be used to collect mass amounts of data on unsuspecting American citizens. "
Knowing users around the world heavily utilize American search engines, Zeekly was programmed to allow it's users to search the web world wide, or they can narrow this down to only search sites in their home country. The site also provides a translation feature to the language of your choice.
Additionally, in contrast to other "privacy" search engines, Zeekly is building it's own proprietary web indexes (based on hadoop/hypertable used by tech giants such as Google), and the site is focused on bringing superior search results to it's users in addition to protecting their privacy. This makes Zeekly truly unique in the market.
"Zeekly will become a market leader n the search space because we provide high quality search results, and we are committed to protecting the privacy of our users."
