Hacks 86-91

When the Web was was younger, the search engine field was wide open. There were lots of major search engines, including AltaVista, Excite, HotBot, and Webcrawler. This proliferation of search engines had both advantages and disadvantages. One disadvantage was that you had to make sure you submitted your query to several different places, while an advantage was that you had several inflows of traffic spawned from search engines.
