thanks to Debbie Abilock.

Search engines and directories are an important tool for accessing information on the World Wide Web. Some are more sophisticated than others. These are called metasearch engines because they spider out and access more indexes than just a regular search engine. One thing to remember when using a search engine is to check the search strategies that the engine uses. Each one has a different technique for limiting searches. Also remember, if one doesn’t yield any information, try another before you switch your topic. Listed above are of some of the best searching tools.
