• Search Engines...

    If you want to find anything on the Internet, you need a search engine. Search engines are programs that search the Internet for user selected keywords or phrases and display lists of sites (URL's) that contain the words and phrases the user entered. All search engines are not equal. Some are more powerful than others and not all of them search in exactly the same way. Given any particular keywords, some will return few or no listings while others may return many listings. Some are strictly search engines whereas others, like Yahoo, are sites that offer a host of other features as well. Check out the help features of the engine you are using to see the most effective way to enter keywords or subjects and perform the best searches.
     
    Google:  a very simple search engine highly rated for speed and effectiveness.
     
    Yahoo:  A well established and popular site which started as a search engine but now includes all kinds of services and features
