Search engines, directories and meta-search engines
- Google Web Directory
Claims to be "the largest human-edited directory on the web" and they may be right. It's certainly worth exploring. Sites are suggested by the general public and the editors are volunteers, so there may be inconsistencies or links to less worthy sites - but there's gold there too!
The official U.S. Government portal, search anything, check out the latest news, government actions, and follow links to the White House, the State Department, and other Federal Agencies. The site also features a topical index.
One of the originals, but in terms of hits it comes up with reliable, relevant suggestions.
- AltaVista Search: Advanced Query
rated one of the best all-purpose search-engines available; if you want to, you can restrict by language, date etc. Can also search for images, URLs and areas which other search engines may not reach.
Simple but good; note the context of your search term(s) to see if the hit could be relevant. Google Türkçe arama yapabiliyor.
- Adobe PDF Search Engine
searches the web for pdf files; gives a summary of the file, letting you know whether this is the one you want to download!
Choose the search engines you want to search, choose how many hits per page.
- Northern Light Search
- A strong search engine; it searches the web and classifies its finds into folders; it also searches its own "Special Collection", a collection of nearly 7000 magazines and journals.
