How to use the Search Engine Resource Center**

To find something click on one of the below 30 links in alphabetical order to help you find it.

My current favorite search engine is Google because of the quality of the sites it gives in almost all the searching I do.  My second favorite is MSN or All the Web and third is Yahoo. Your results may vary.

All 4 One MetaSearch,    (AllTheWeb)Fast,   Alta Vista,    AOL,

Ask Jeeves,    Canada.com,   Dogpile,    Excite,    Galaxy,    Google,   

Hotbot,    I-Explorer,    Infospace,    Inktomi*,   Jump City,   

Looksmart,    Lycos,     Mamma,    M.S.N,    Nernworld,    Netscape,   

Northern Light,    Open Directory,    P.C. Beacon,    PlanetSearch,   

Profusion,    Teoma,   WebCrawler,    Web-Direct,

WebLens Search Portal,    Yahoo

Spend any time online, and you discover that no single search engine meets all your searching needs. As you work with different engines, you find that each one is useful in particular situations. A crawler is great when you're looking for specifics, and hierarchical engine works better when you need help narrowing a broad search.

Choosing the right search engine to match your search is an ability learned over time, and with a little help from the Search Engine Resource Center and your friends at Cutler's Cove.

Be Aware of Paid Placement!

Paid Placement on Search Engines: Many well known search engines, including AltaVista, LookSmart, Overture, Yahoo!, and more, allow advertisers to pay for prominent positioning on your search results page. Look twice to make sure you distinguish between what's paid for and what's not. The first listings are not always the best or most appropriate because of paid placement.

A good article on how to research what you have: What do I have and what's it worth?  Basic search concepts.

According to NetRatings for November 2005 the Big Four search engines are:
Google - 46.3% of searches
Yahoo - 23.4% of searches

MSN - 11.4% of searches
AOL - 6.9% of searches

Results do not add up to 100% as some searchers use more than one search engine.

It is sad but there are just three companies left in the search engine field that really matter: Google, Yahoo! and MSN.

Google is now searching 8,058,044,651 web pages in November 2004
Google is now searching 4,280,000,000 web pages in February 2004
Google is was searching 3,307,998,701 web pages in September 2003
Google was searching 3,083,324,652 web pages in December 2002
Google was searching 2,073,418,204 web pages in January 2002

Google co-founder Larry Page said back in December 2002: "To search our collection of 3 billion documents by hand, it would take 5,707 years, searching 24 hours per day, at one minute per document. With Google, it takes less than a second."

Search Engine Resources Especially for Search Engine Users

*Inktomi does not have its own search engine interface but provides crawler results to many other search engines.

**How to use the Search Engine Resource Center which we call The Easy Searcher's Page here: http://cutlerscove.com/company/searchengines.htm . It has a list of about 30 search engines in alphabetical order to help you find what you are looking for. When you click each link a new window opens and you can complete your search on that engine. If you do not find what you are looking for on that search engine then close that window and you will be back on Search Engine Resource Center page ready to start a new search on the next engine in the list.

Do you know a friend that the above resource could help, please tell them about it.

What is the difference between the Internet and the World Wide Web?
  •  The Internet started in 1969 and is a network of networks. 
  •  The World Wide Web, was born in 1989, and is a system of interconnected Web pages that you can access via the Internet. It did not really take off until about 1993. In the past few years, the Web has become the most common way of using the Internet. In 1993, the Internet had 130 Web sites. Today, it has many millions, and statistics indicate that the number is doubling every few months.

How big is the Web? 

  •  Way big, real big, big, big, or to put numbers on it, at least two billion pages, sometime in January 2002. There never will be a clear answer on the Web's size now that many pages are buried in Intranets behind firewalls. But with the leading search engines now claiming to have indexed more than two billion pages, the public Web is over a giga-plex at least. 

Internet Usage

  •  Radio was in 10% of American households in 1925. By 1935 that had grown to 70%. TV went from 9% in 1950 to 87% in 1960. Internet use in the USA from 2000 to 2004 grew 108%. Internet penetration in U.S. households has reached nearly 75 percent, rising roughly 9 percentage points in the last year, Nielsen//NetRatings reported in its newly-released Enumeration Study, conducted in February of 2004.
