Part: 2 The Big Six Search Engines

Part 2: The Big Six Search Engines

The Big Six Search Engines

Once you've got a basic understanding of search engines and searching (either through direct experience or by reading Part 1), you'll be ready for these chapters on six of the very best search engines:

  • AltaVista

  • Google

  • HotBot

  • Lycos

  • Northern Light

  • Yahoo!

As you can see, the search engines are presented in alphabetical order. Feel free to skip around, perhaps starting with a search engine you've used before or heard the most about.

And remember, it's not necessary to master all six of these search engines. Use the information presented here to learn about the particular strengths of each one. Work through the step-by-step examples, and try some sample searches of your own with the book opened to the appropriate Quick Reference guide.

Once you've identified the search engine you like best, consider making it the default starting location for your Web browser, as suggested in Chapter 4. Add the others to your browser's Bookmarks or Favorites list so that you can get to them quickly when you need to consult a second (or third) search engine.
