Chapter 5. Searching the World Wide Web > Setting Up a Simple Search

Setting Up a Simple Search

Internet Explorer enables you to search for Web pages, people's e-mail addresses, and even for maps and information about businesses contained in online yellow pages. Internet Explorer also gives you easy access to many search engines, such as MSN, Lycos, and Yahoo!.

Tip

How Search Engines Work Search engines are basically giant databases that collect information from the Web sites on the World Wide Web. They build their databases based on keywords that are found on the sites themselves. That's why you often get mixed results when you do a search by a particular keyword. Searching the Web using the word "cheese" gets you plenty of matches that supply information on cheese, but you also get matches such as the Cheesiest Web Sites on the Web.
