Babylon Video Search

Babylon Search is the search engine of the Israeli company Babylon Ltd, which is best known for its translation software. The search is a search interface that initially used the content from Google, currently the content comes from Yahoo (2019). The search engine was launched around 2007. Babylon Search was criticized by Internet users because its search toolbar was installed with software packages without the user being asked.

Since 2007, Babylon Search has offered an image search and in 2011 a video, blog and news search has been added. Blog and news searches were discontinued at the end of 2013. The picture and video search did not provide any results from the end of 2018 to 2019. Currently (October 2019) neither of them offer their own results page anymore, instead they link to the results page of Yahoo. In the first few years, Google was used for the web search, which is why it can be assumed that the vertical offers also originated from Google.
