My YouTube Channel – It’s Just Talking

I created a new YouTube channel about 2 years ago. My original goal was to share videos about products my company was launching. I didn’t publish much, but the videos I published slowly racked up some views. A few of my older videos have done really well, and have since gotten over 5000 views.

What is Search Encrypt?

I’m taking a look at a relatively new search engine, Search Encrypt. It is a privacy based search engine, comparable to DuckDuckGo and StartPage. How Does Search Encrypt Work? According to Search Encrypt’s “About” page, this is what happens when a user performs a search: Search Encrypt checks the URL of each website you visitContinue reading “What is Search Encrypt?”
