Most popular search engines

Google
1. Google is the undisputed king of spartan searching. While it doesnt offer all the shopping center features of Yahoo, Google is fast, relevant, and the largest single catalogue of Web pages available today. Make sure you try the Google images, maps and news features. they are outstanding services for locating photos, geographic directions, and news headlines. .....
Dogpile
2. Years ago, Dogpile was the fast and efficient choice before Google. Things changed, Dogpile faded into obscurity, and Google became king. But today, Dogpile is coming back, with a growing index and a clean and quick presentation that is testimony to its halcyon days. If you want to try a search tool with pleasant presentation and helpful crosslink results, definitely try Dogpile. .....
Ask
3. The Ask AJ Ask Jeeves search engine is a longtime name in the World Wide Web. The super clean interface rivals the other major search engines, and the search options are as good as Google or Bing or DuckDuckGo. The results groupings are what really make Ask.com stand out. The presentation is arguably cleaner and easier to read than Google or Yahoo or Bing, and the results groups seem to be more relevant. Decide for yourself if you agree. give Ask.com a whirl, and compare it to the other search engines you like. .....
Bing
4. Bing is Microsofts attempt at unseating Google. Bing used to be MSN search until it was updated in summer of 2009. Touted as a decision engine, Bing tries to support your researching by offering suggestions in the leftmost column, while also giving you various search options across the top of the screen. Things like wiki suggestions, visual search, and related searches might be very useful to you. Bing is not dethroning Google in the near future, no. But Bing is definitely worth trying. .....
Yippy
5. Yippy is a Deep Web engine that searches other search engines for you. Unlike the regular Web, which is indexed by robot spider programs, Deep Web pages are usually harder to locate by conventional search. Thats where Yippy becomes very useful. If you are searching for obscure hobby interest blogs, obscure government information, tough to find obscure news, academic research and otherwise obscure content, then Yippy is your tool. .....
Webopedia
6. Webopedia is one of the most useful websites on the World Wide Web. Webopedia is an encyclopedic resource dedicated to searching techno terminology and computer definitions. Teach yourself what domain name system is, or teach yourself what DDRAM means on your computer. Webopedia is absolutely a perfect resource for non technical people to make more sense of the computers around them. .....
Yahoo
7. Yahoo is several things: it is a search engine, a news aggregator, a shopping center, an emailbox, a travel directory, a horoscope and games center, and more. This web portal breadth of choice makes this a very helpful site for Internet beginners. Searching the Web should also be about discovery and exploration, and Yahoo delivers that in wholesale quantities. .....
The Internet Archive
8. The Internet Archive is a favorite destination for longtime Web lovers. The Archive has been taking snapshots of the entire World Wide Web for years now, allowing you and me to travel back in time to see what a web page looked like in 1999, or what the news was like around Hurricane Katrina in 2005. You wont visit the Archive daily, like you would Google or Yahoo or Bing, but when you do have need to travel back in time, use this search site. .....
Mahalo
9. Mahalo is the one human powered search site in this list, employing a committee of editors to manually sift and vet thousands of pieces of content. This means that youll get fewer Mahalo hit results than you will get at Bing or Google. But it also means that most Mahalo results have a higher quality of content and relevance (as best as human editors can judge).Mahalo also offers regular web searching in addition to asking questions. Depending on which of the two search boxes you use at Mahalo, you will either get direct content topic hits or suggested answers to your question. .....
AllTheWeb com
10. Powered by Yahoo, you may find AllTheWeb a lighter, more customizable and pleasant pure search experience than you get at Yahoo itself. The focus is on web search. But at the same time news, picture, video, MP3 and FTP search is also offered.AllTheWeb.com was previously owned by a company called FAST and it was used as a showcase for that companys web search technology. Thats why you may sometimes hear AllTheWeb.com also referred to as FAST or FAST Search. However, the search engine was purchased by search provider Overture in late April 2003, then later become Yahoos property when Yahoo bought Overture. It no longer has a connection with FAST. .....
Duck Duck Go
11. At first, DuckDuckGo.com looks like Google. But there are many subtleties that make this spartan search engine different. DuckDuckGo has some slick features, like zero click information (all your answers are found on the first results page). DuckDuckgo offers disambiguation prompts (helps to clarify what question you are really asking). And the ad spam is much less than Google. Give DuckDuckGo.com a try. you might really like this clean and simple search engine. .....
AOL Search
12. AOL Search provides users with editorial listings that come Googles crawler based index. Indeed, the same search on Google and AOL Search will come up with very similar matches. So, why would you use AOL Search? Primarily because you are an AOL user. The internal version of AOL Search provides links to content only available within the AOL online service. In this way, you can search AOL and the entire web at the same time. The external version lacks these links. Why wouldnt you use AOL Search? If you like Google, many of Googles features such as cached pages are not offered by AOL Search. .....
HotBot
13. HotBot provides easy access to the webs three major crawler based search engines: Yahoo, Google and Teoma. Unlike a meta search engine, it cannot blend the results from all of these crawlers together. Nevertheless, its a fast, easy way to get different web search opinions in one place. HotBots choose a search engine interface was introduced in December 2002. However, HotBot has a long history as a search brand before this date.HotBot debuted in May 1996, it gained a strong following among serious searchers for the quality and comprehensiveness of its crawler based results, which were provided by Inktomi, at the time. It also caught the attention of experienced web users and techies, especially for the unusual colors and interface it continues to sport today.

HotBot gained more notoriety when it switched over to using Direct Hits clickthrough results for its main listings in 1999. Direct Hit was then one of the hot search engines that had recently appeared. Unfortunately, the quality of Direct Hits results couldnt match those of another hot player that had debuted at the same time, Google. HotBots popularity began to drop.Even worse, HotBot also suffered by being owned by Lycos (now Terra Lycos). Lycos had acquired HotBot when it purchased Wired Digital in October 1998. Lycos failed to make search a priority on its flagship Lycos site as well as HotBot through much of 1999 and 2000, as it focused instead on adding portal features. The company refocused on search in late 2001, making significant improvements to the Lycos site and, as noted, reworked the HotBot site at the end of 2002. .....

AltaVista
14. AltaVista opened in December 1995 and for several years was the Google of its day, in terms of providing relevant results and having a loyal group of users that loved the service.Sadly, an attempt to turn AltaVista into a portal site in 1998 saw the company lose track of the importance of search. Over time, relevancy dropped, as did the freshness of AltaVistas listings and the crawlers coverage of the web.Today, AltaVista is once again focused on search. Results come from Yahoo, and tabs above the search box let you go beyond web search to find images, MP3 Audio, Video, Human category listings and News results. If you want a lighter feel than Yahoo but to still have Yahoos results, AltaVista is worth considering.AltaVista was originally owned by Digital, then taken over by Compaq, when that company purchased Digital in 1998. AltaVista was later spun off into a private company, controlled by CMGI. Overture purchasing the search engine in April 2003, then it later became part of Yahoo when Yahoo bought Overture. .....
Live Search
15. Live Search (formerly Windows Live Search) is the name of Microsofts web search engine, successor to MSN Search, designed to compete with the industry leaders Google and Yahoo. The search engine offers some innovative features, such as the ability to view additional search results on the same web page (instead of needing to click through to subsequent search result pages) and the ability to adjust the amount of information displayed for each search result (i.e. just the title, a short summary, or a longer summary). It also allows the user to save searches and see them updated automatically on Live.com.The service was previously powered by LookSmart results and gained top marks for having its own team of editors that monitored the most popular searches being performed to hand pick sites believed to be the most relevant. The system worked well. .....
Lycos
16. Lycos is one of the oldest search engines on the web, launched in 1994. It ceased crawling the web for its own listings in April 1999 and instead provides access to human powered results from LookSmart for popular queries and crawler based results from Yahoo for others.Fast Forward lets you see search results in one side of your screen and the actual pages listed in another. Relevant categories of human compiled information from the Open Directory appear at the bottom of the search results page.Lycos is owned by Terra Lycos, a company formed with Lycos and Terra Networks merged in October 2000. Terra Lycos also owns the HotBot search engine described above. .....
Netscape Search
17. Owned by AOL Time Warner, Netscape Search uses Google for its main listings, just as does AOLs other major search site, AOL Search. So why use Netscape Search rather than Google? Unlike with AOL Search, theres no compelling reason to consider it. The main difference between Netscape Search and Google is that Netscape Search will list some of Netscapes own content at the top of its results. Netscape also has a completely different look and feel than Google. If you like either of these reasons, then try Netscape Search. Otherwise, youre probably better off just searching at Google. .....
Pipl
18. Pipl is tenacious people search engine. Pipls claim to fame is the depths to which it can plumb the deep web to find information. When you search for a person using Pipl, youre not limited to a simple white pages search. Pipl scours databases and indexes that standard search engines normally dont touch. If its there to be found, Pipl returns all manner of things about the person youre searching for, including blog entires, photos, publications, donations on public record, profiles on social and business networking sites, and other overlooked sources. Pipl supports searching by name, username, phone number, and email. .....
Facebook
19. Facebook is principally a social network, but its the first stop for many people searchers due to its widespread popularity. By Facebooks count, 150 million active users frequent the site, about a third of which are in the United States. Even if you take those numbers with a grain of salt, thats still an enormous number of people who have put themselves out there to be found. Therein lies the strength of looking for someone on Facebook: By joining the service, Facebook users have essentially put up a big sign that says, Find me .....
Spock
20. Spock is another people search engine that relies on multiple sources and aggregation to cull as much information as it can about a subject. In addition to indexing information from various news sites and social networks, Spock has a variety of notifications options available. Like 123people (below), Spock supports email notifications of changes to a person search, but you can also subscribe to an RSS feed for your search. .....
123people
21. 123people has a broad reach, delving into blogs and public profiles to increase your chances of finding who youre looking for. 123people is a strong people search engine, but one of the best pieces of functionality available to 123people searchers is its email notification feature, which sends out an email alert whenever the results of a specific search changes. Its a little heavy on the stalk factor (though in a strange way not all that different from Facebooks newsfeed), but it saves you from wasting your time with fruitless return searches. .....
MSN Search
22. MSN, the Microsoft Network, was launched in 1995 as a rival to AOL. It added Hotmail, instant messaging, shopping and other services as it grew into a portal, and in July 2000, it became the leading web destination, with more than 200m visitors a month. Two years ago, Microsoft decided that MSNs search should be powered by Microsoft technology, and this was finally released in 21 countries in 10 languages on February 1.Microsofts offerings are: Web, News, Images, Desktop, and Encarta. It also has a Near Me button for local searches. The results pages look like Googles but adverts are more prominent. As with Google and Yahoo, the toolbar and desktop search software must be downloaded separately.

Unadjusted searches at MSN are rarely better than Google and sometimes much worse. Most of its usage is therefore most likely to come from people who are on the MSN site for other reasons, or are searching from Microsofts Internet Explorer browser, where it is the default.MSN Search does have a drop down tool, Search Builder, which includes sliders that let you adjust the settings for sites that are more popular or have been updated recently. However, these are so cumbersome to use, it seems few will bother. .....

Golden oldies
23. Ask Jeeves (www.ask.com) is one of the biggest engines outside the top table, and claims to be most peoples second favourite engine. The original concept of using natural language (where can I find bike shops in Glasgow?) still holds true, although it also caters for keyword searching. The hard work is done by the Teoma engine (www.teoma.com), which Jeeves acquired in 2000. Both give clean results, including image and related search options, and Jeeves also offers MyJeeves, which remembers your searches and lets you save important ones.Other long standing search names are still going, though most have been bought out by larger rivals or exist in radically different forms. Pioneer AltaVista (www.altavista.com) was bought out by a series of small firms until it was hoovered up by Yahoo, and it now uses Yahoo results, though it still boasts one of the webs best translators, BabelFish ( babelfish.altavista.com). Other engines including Inktomi have also been consumed by the Yahoo brand.

One of the webs earliest search successes, Lycos (www.lycos.com), is still around, though it, too, has changed hands many times. It now works in tandem with Hotbot (www.hotbot.com), a metasearch site that pulls results from across several engines to produce aggregated and theoretically better results.Dogpile (www.dogpile.com) is probably the best known metasearch engine, and draws results from Jeeves, Google, Yahoo and others. It pulls answers from these and removes duplicates, but sometimes misses some of the more idiosyncratic results. It also searches across images, audio, video and news. If you find the results arent quite your cup of tea, you could turn to MetaCrawler (www.metacrawler.com), which is also owned by Dogpiles parent company, Infospace. Metacrawler was launched in 1994, so it has a long track record, and it produces filtered results from a familiar range of sources. .....

Clustering
24. Several of the lower league search engines use a technique known as clustering to help users filter out the best results. This intelligently divides a morass of answers into categories, to help users weed out unwanted pages particularly useful if you get thousands of results on your keywords. Clusty (www.clusty.com) is still in beta testing mode, but combines Google like search functions with clustering options. A search for Guardian Online, for example, pro duced clusters including newspapers, politics, journalism, entertainment, books and angels. You can build categories based on either topic, source or URL, and the news and image searches seem fairly accurate, even if they sometimes return fewer results than you might need.Australian based Mooter (www.mooter.com) has a more visual approach, presenting clusters as a spider diagram, and shows a more traditional list when you click on your chosen category but by the time you get to the results, they seem much the same as other engines.Kartoo www.kartoo.com) takes the visual option further by drawing Flash maps of search results. While visually interesting, it can be cumbersome and seems to throw up a lot of commercial results. .....
Regular and real time
25. Other sites have chosen different ways to change Googles search paradigm. Some have opted for more regular or even real time searching, taking results from the web as they happen rather than relying on an irregularly updated library of results.Daypop (www.daypop.com) trawls news sites and weblogs at least once a day, producing good results, while Technorati.com (www.technorati.com) applies itself purely to weblogs but picks up new pages within minutes of them being published. The basic search is adequate, though it sometimes suffers from time outs. The recently launched tags function incorporates blog categories, social bookmarking site del.icio.us and photo sharing service Flickr to create ad hoc keyword homepages. .....
Local searches
26. Some search firms focus on geographical niches, favouring local results to offer what could be more appropriate answers. Several target the British market, including UKWizz (www.ukwizz.com), which looks quite basic and struggles to compete with Googles local search (www.google.co.uk).Newsnow (www.newsnow.co.uk), a British based news searcher, sifts through headlines on news stories and categorises them by age. It is very good for basic searches (Beckham, for example) but you have to pay to search for multiword phrases or inside the full text of an article.Exalead, which is still in beta, ( http: beta.exalead.com ) is a well designed attempt to provide as many search options as possible, including geographically based ones. It also includes audio and video searching, limited clustering and the ability to search for different document types all without cluttering the interface. .....
Honourable mentions
27. Blinkx (www.blinkx.com) drops keyword search in favour of clever artifical intelligence to find what youre looking for. The interface is clunky, but it draws results from the web, your desktop and other sources.Icerocket (< a href=http: www.icerocket.com>www.icerocket.com) is quite similar to the big engines, but provides a screenshot of the page the result comes from, and searches both blogs and photographs within blogs though that seems limited.Singing Fish (www.singingfish.com) focuses on audio and video search. It is not perfect and is unlikely to give you huge numbers of results (just 10 for Eminem Mosh, for example) but it is customisable and has a parental filter.

Websbiggest (www.websbiggest.com) ranks pages by the amount of traffic they get, while Looksmart (www.looksmart.com), a survivor of the early days, focuses on being a portal, offering little to the search melee.Amazon owned A9 (www.a9.com) organises and recalls searches easily (handy if you cant remember how you found that website last Saturday), but the basic results are provided by Google. It links up with Amazon.com and the Internet Movie Database, making it useful for searching across books and movies.

If you do not want your email address published please say so. .....
