Search Engines

Rather than just list every search engine around, this is my list of the better ones.

  • Google - citation based, the more linked web sites are at the top of the list.
  • Alta Vista - one from the early days, very flexible for including and excluding urls or links or words; very broad in coverage.
  • Preview Seek - a newer s.e. with some previewing capability
  • WiseNut - ranking based search engine
  • The "Wayback Machine" - internet archive. Not really a search engine, per se, but an archive of how pages looked in the past. Use it to find something that "used to be there".
