search engine

A search engine allows people to find web pages/sites that contain a given keyword phrase. When a user enters and makes a query the engine returns the pages/sites that it determines to best match the search criteria. Each search engine has its own method of indexing a page/site to determine which ones rank best.

search engine types

Note that most public search engines, i.e. Yahoo, AltaVista, Lycos, actually use both a page search engine and a directory.

search engine scope


The following is a list of popular search engines. Often these search engines are only portals to someone else's database.
