Chapter 14. NEWS SEARCHING > Using News Search Engines

Using News Search Engines

Finding news stories in general search engines is useful when you're covering a very major story that's extended over several months, or sometimes (rarely) when you're covering a very minor story that is only covered by small newspapers that aren't indexed by the news search engines. They're also good for covering technical or industry-oriented stories that you'll find in sources that for the most part are not indexed by news search engines.

But for general news, or for news that has a short lifetime, or news that gets a reasonable amount of national coverage, the news search engines work better. You can sort your results by date, view news that was indexed within a certain date range, and eliminate a lot of false positives that you might get for general Web searching. For news searching I can recommend five different searches.
