The search engine is based on semantic data recognition that give faster "answers" to queries. In addition, Swisscows does not store users' data.[5][6] Swisscows also deems itself "family-friendly", with explicit results entirely omitted.[7] The website's servers are based in underground data centers under the Swiss Alps.[8]

Swisscows uses Bing for web search, but has also built its own index for the German language edition.[9] It also has shopping search, music search (powered by SoundCloud), and a language translator powered by Yandex.

As of 2018, there are 20 million monthly search queries, according to Hulbee CEO, Andreas Wiebe.[10]
