Search the Web

Google and more! Learn about search engines, metasearch engines, internet directories, and expert web searching.



Search Engines

Specialized Search Engines

These engines search only a specific piece of the Internet. See the "Vertical Search Engines" on our Deep Web guide for more of these.

Metasearch Engines

Why use a single search engine when you can use a Meta?  All web search engines are based on algorithms --complex series of lexical orders -- when they are combined, they may actually compete/delete results from some searches. Combining results from two or more engines assures the researcher of a more complete list of informative websites.
