web search facts
Google is the largest search engine on the Web, indexing over four billion web pages

If you really want to find the good stuff, then always use more than one search tool

Yahoo! typically used Google for its search engine results and the Open Directory for the Yahoo! directory. Now Yahoo! has just released its own search engine Yahoo Search!

In 2003 Microsoft bots were detected indexing the Web – rumoured to release its own search engine between July 2004 and January 2005

Web Search Facts
web search facts4
An estimated 73% of the Web is in English

Many search engines are also directories

Some directories are also meta search engines

The Open Directory has 64,000 editors and about 590,000 search categories!

However, directories typically have much smaller databases than search engines

No search tool is able to search the entire Web, though some meta search engines go to the Deep Net, Dark Web or Invisible Web!

Google is the most popular search engine, but the Yahoo! portal is visited more often

Web Search Facts
types of search services
Types of Search Services
  • “Search engines” crawl the web and read your web pages
  • “Directories” like Yahoo depend on human-provided information to categorize sites
  • Most search services are a hybrid of both, but more dominant in one area

Most search engines...

  • are actually user-friendly (not scary) and all you need is a little bit of time...
  • have a ‘preferences’ tab that customises current and future visits
  • have an ‘advanced’ tab that helps narrow your search query
  • have help pages if you’re a newbie!
  • Allow you to use quotation marks and ‘+’ or ‘-’ signs in your search query for better results

evaluating online information
Evaluating Online Information
  • Always judge a web page for relevance and accuracy:
    • Who is the Author?
    • What is the Purpose of the site?
    • Is the information Fact, Opinion, or Propaganda?
    • Is the information Reliable and Credible?
    • Is the information Current?
