I used Google for a long time, and now Bing the last few yrs . Both of them give me less and less results for what i'm looking for , and more and more results trying to sell me something related to my search.

Can anyone recommend alternatives to google and bing that will give me more results that have the actual information i'm looking for , and less commercial results ?
The first few years google was around it gave plenty of articles and websites from individuals and "end users" posting relevant info about my search . Even now, i'll try to scroll to the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th page of results where you used to get more articles from individuals ...nowadays the 3rd, 4,5,6,7th page ends me up in china , .cz , .ru , .tw . Btw , i'm not searching for anything illicit, porn or dark web kind of stuff ...haha . It's Usually info on electronics, computers, music, motorcycles, welding, hobbys, etc . I don't need adblock , I don't mind seeing the ad's , I just want less commercial results . Refining the search to .edu and such , doesn't help much.
I use Firefox and internet explorer , I could use whatever ...no preference

Thanks much in advance !

Thanks . I just want more non-commercial results . I don't care if they tracking me. Either way, they have everything you've ever typed, and will type . i appreciate the responses >

use google chrome then get the ad on ad block, If you want to hid what your searching there is no way, it will always be logged somewhere somehow from your ISP or PC

I appreciate the responses but I mentioned in my original post that I don't care about ad's, privacy or tracking. I'm just looking for a different search engine that is not ridiculously monetized like google and bing are now . I used google from the start, it was great, It gave a lot of very relevant results...but every year that goes by, the results are more and more trying to sell me something instead of giving me relevant results. I'm not searching for anything illicit, porn or dark web stuff here. I do electronics, music, wood and metal work too . Try searching something...all you get anymore are links to buy stuff. It's to the point now where i'm looking for a different search engine. I haven't found one that's anything different than google and bing, as far as "sell me stuff" results
