    Make it do something unique. ecosia .org plants a tree every time someone uses their platform to search. I don't see any new search platform doing very well with Google in the picture.

    assuming you are able to do something unique like Ecosia.org, how then do you still market it to the audience, though? How would they know about the search engine if they are not somehow made aware of it?

    Well once you figure out a unique feature your best bet would be to buy ads from Facebook, Google, Bing, and anywhere else that sells ad space. In the case of ecosia, I would make a Facebook ad targeting people who like bing, google, and also environmentalists, hippies, and tree huggers.

    Engage with people, provide them something quick, shallow and fun.

    The problem with that is that a search engine is not a regular website, which has content that you could pay for adwordwords or optimize keywords for. I am looking for a way to take it viral since it has a unique feature that 's its primary selling point.

    So you have an inferior product with no market share in an aggressive marketplace.
    Seems like you are way out of your league on this one.
