Before you can use Kagi, you need to visit https://kagi.com and sign up for a Free Basic or Premium plan.
To do a basic search, simply visit https://kagi.com and search for something.
Or, if you've set Kagi as your default search engine, you can do a search from your browser's address bar.
Filter Search Results
You can filter your search results to focus on the results you most care about.
Using Search Operators
If you press ? on your keyboard (shift + /) while in search results, Kagi will open a scrollable window showing keyboard shortcuts, search operators, query shortcuts, and widgets. You can also click or tap Help at the bottom of any Kagi webpage to see the same information.
For example, searching for outfit movie ! will take you straight to the first result for that query.
You can read documentation that covers the search operators in detail.
Kagi supports all DuckDuckGo-style bangs. Bangs are shortcuts starting with exclamation points (!) that quickly take you to search results on other sites.
For example, searching Kagi for !w Monty Python will search Wikipedia directly for "Monty Python" and take you to that Wikipedia search result.
Kagi Lenses allow you to customize your searches by specifying which websites (and other parameters) you see in your results. We provide a few Lenses to get you started, such as one to search only online discussions and forums. You can also create your own!
Here's an example using the built-in EDU lens:
You can tweak how the website for a result is treated in future Kagi searches using Personalized Results.
You can see your Personalized Results for all websites in Settings.
