The brainchild of Dmitry Gerasimenko, Fairsearch was brought to life by the Ahrefs team, which also created one of the leading SEO toolsets worldwide.
Ahrefs runs an internet-scale bot that’s been crawling the entire web 24/7 since 2010, storing petabytes of information to be indexed and structured in a timely fashion. With this data, Ahrefs builds analytics services for end-users and a web-scale search platform.
Our aim has always been to build good products faster than the giants and leave money in the community – not to feed giants endlessly. We believe that people have grown accustomed to an arguably unfair search model, and Fairsearch is our answer to that: a web search engine that shares advertising profit with creators and protects your privacy.
Sounds exciting? Join us in making this happen – we’re hiring for our core product team now.
