Chapter 7. HotBot

Good to Know

  • HotBot rivals AltaVista in the breadth and sophistication of its search offerings, including search customization features.

  • Powered by Inktomi, one of the largest and most frequently updated search engine databases, HotBot is a top choice of professional searchers.

  • Because of its easy-to-use interface, with drop-down menus and radio buttons that allow you to create complex and precisely targeted queries, it's also extremely popular with less-experienced searchers.

  • Launched in 1996 by Wired Digital, HotBot was acquired in 1998 by the company that owns and operates the Lycos search engine.
