Search Engines - What are they?

Search engines are the key to finding specific information on the World Wide Web.
Without sophisticated search engines, it would be almost impossible to find anything on the Web without knowing a specific address.

Google today is the undisputed leader of search engines. Google is fast, uncluttered, relevant, and the largest single catalogue of Web pages available today. Make sure you try the Google maps, they are outstanding services for checking locations, geographic directions, and local photos. Google was originally a Stanford University project by Russian student Sergey Brin called BackRub. By 1998, the name had been changed to Google, and the project jumped off campus and became the private company Google. It remains privately held today.

In addition to Google's unpaid editorial results, the company also operates its own advertising programs. The cost-per-click AdWords program places ads on Google as well as some of Google's partners. Similarly, Google is also a provider of unpaid editorial results to some other search engines.

Launched back in 1994, Yahoo is the web's oldest directory,
While similar, Google and Yahoo results are not always the same - click on the title to run a quick comparison of responses for keywords of your choice. Yahoo has two submission options: "Standard," which is free, and "Yahoo Directory Submit," which involves a submission fee.

The Bing, Internet search engine from Microsoft Corporation, is one of the newest major players in the search engine market. Bing used to be MSN search until it was updated in summer of 2009.
