Why Anoox?
Anoox was founded in 2004 when we realized building WebSites and putting it on the Web was not enough as 99% of such (small) business WebSites would fail in quick order without affordable marketing. That only by having affordable marketing could a small business Site thrive. So we decided to do something Truly Revolutionary: form a non-profit to harness the awesome power of search engine & social network, the Gateway through which People decide what and when to Buy, to provide effective low cost marketing to Small businesses. This proved to be a Herculean task to put it mildly, and that is why 10+ Years on Anoox remains the only non-profit search engine & social network - More
  • How Anoox was able to deliver effective low cost marketing to Small businesses - See how
  • Why in 10+ Year Anoox remains the only non-profit search engine & social network - See why

But as time went by, we realized that the needs for a non-profit search engine & social network goes well beyond offering low cost marketing services to small businesses. That from fostering free flow of information, to freedom of expression, to combating fake and hate messages, that the World needs non-profit search engine & social network alternatives to Big tech, so as to put the Public interest above any profit and share motivations on Wall Street. So below we are listing all the other reasons WHY the World needs non-profit search engine & social network alternatives:

Choice makes LIFE Better - Power Corrupts & Absolute Power Absolutely Corrupts
Choice is good
Choice is healthy
Choice is empowering
Choice makes LIFE Better

To see these facts, consider some analogies:

Imagine, if our choice for eating World Wide was pretty much limited to Wall Street based McDonald™?

Imagine, if our choice for shopping World Wide was pretty much limited to Wall Street based WalMart™?

Imagine, if our choice for buying Autos World Wide was pretty much limited to one Auto maker?

You can Imagine what a drab, unhealthy, stifling, nightmarish World that would be. Well, the same nightmarish scenario will be the case in regard to information and commerce if our Choice for finding things World Wide was limited to one Wall Street based search engine [1]: Google™. Because there is one TRUISM that has held through out the ages, and that is:

Power Corrupts and Absolute Power Absolutely Corrupts
And the above core facts for why we need more Choices in regard to the all important Search engine, based on which Anoox was founded way back in 2004, were proven by the European Union imposing record fines of $2.7 Billion on Google on June 2017 for manipulating its search results. But in fact these fines will have little effect, if we do not have Choice.
We need Privacy - ALWAYS
We do not have Fair/Free Markets, not by a Billion Miles, we need More Fair Markets
So Our mission was simple to start with, which was to provide affordable marketing services to Small businesses. And we have been doing this since 2004. Our longevity in the search engine & social network marketing industry is testament to the quality of services we have been providing. But as the times have gotten much more complicated and uncertain, our mission has grown many fold, stretching our limited resources as a non-profit to its limits. So for the sake of all the reasons WHY we need a non-profit search engine & social network, Get involved
