Search Engines


Probably the best subject oriented index around. Yahoo is a great starting place for most people, especially since it is already indexed and catagorized for you.


This is the one I use the most of all the single threaded search engines. It has the fastest turnaround time I have seen. Read the search options, especially on assigning the degree of stregth or importance to a term and on how to cut down on unwanted URLs.


Alta Vista is a commercial product by Digital. The search engine has been chosen by Netscape to be its default search engine. Very comprehensive.


This search engine uses both full text indexing and header material to form its database.


It builds an impressively complete index and indexes the content of documents. Sorts the documents according to how closely they match your search.

SavySearch-Select from www resources, people, commercial, technical reports, news, etc.


There is the simple search which is the default that can search by exact phrase. Also uses AND as well as OR. The Power Search lets you use (AND, OR, NOT, NEAR, FOLLOWED BY). Plus, it can search differentfields of the database such as the: summary, title, contents first header tag, and URL. If that weren't all, there is a "find similar pages" option. This is simple for the novice with more advanced options for experts.

Excite allows for conceptual searching and "More like this". Boolean (AND, OR). Fantastic for searching in general fields if you don't know what to look for.

Hotbot another search engine. Highly rated by PC Magazine.
