Your current Home Page is more than likely a search engine page. But, there
are many more search engines available as well. Why? Each search engine has a
slightly different method of sorting through the massive amount of data on the
internet. To see what I mean, go to a few different search
links listed here and do a search for the same word - for example, HOBBIES.
You'll notice that you get a different set of results in different order from
each of the engines. Each search engine generally has a link to searching tips
that will help you narrow down your results so that you find what you're looking
for. There are also search engines that search the major search engines. We like
to use WebCrawler and WebFerret.
