What's a Search Site?

Put simply, a search site—which you may also see variously described as a search page, search tool, or search service—is a Web page where you can conduct a search of the Web. Such pages have been set up by a variety of companies that offer you free Web searching and support the service, at least in part, through the advertising you'll see prominently displayed there. Figure 12.1 shows a popular search site, Excite.
