Search Engines
Search Engines are tools for searching the Internet for keywords entered by the user. They all work a little differently and produce different search results. Each search engine has a Help screen to tell you how best to construct your search.

Ask.com
http://www.ask.com/
Natural language searching (you can type in a question instead of using keywords.) The knowledgebase includes sites that have been reviewed for their speed in loading, reliability of content, unbiased information content and ease of use.

Bing
A search engine by Microsoft. It gives related searches in order to assist in your search.

Dogpile
http://www.dogpile.com/
One of the best of the meta-search engines (which allows you to search information from a variety of search engines all at once), Dogpile presents your results in a very organized fashion.

Google
http://www.google.com/
Google offers a unique ranking system which provides remarkably relevant results. Developed at Stanford University.

WebCrawler
http://webcrawler.com/
Simple meta-search provides single-line list of items retrieved.

Yahoo

http://www.yahoo.com
One of the oldest and easiest to use.
