How to Search the Web

Revised 7-6-16

Click Here to check additional listings of search engines

First of all, we need to look at the various search engines available. A search engine is just another web page that provides a service of searching for information on the web. Here are some search sites:

Yahoo The most well known one. I like it for searching and for free e-mail.
Excite: I like this one for searching. And it has a family filter for blocking unwanted material. As does Lycos.
Other general search engines include:
Google, About, Dogpile and others.

Ask.com They piggyback on almost ever program and download you get these days, makes itself your home page and adds a toolbar to your browser.
If you don't want it you have to uninstall it.

Here is a nice list of search engines and other search resources, hotsheet nice list of places you commonly search for & nicely categorized.
