Alta Vista Cory Alice
AltaVista is organized along two business lines: * Internet Search : AltaVista
offers the world's fastest, most comprehensive search service, performing
millions of search queries each day in over 25 languages. * Enterprise
Search Software: offers AltaVista search software to more than 1,200 companies
companies including Amazon.com, Borders.com, Buy.com, The FBI, NASA, Daimler
Chrysler, and Siemens, to name a few.
This site used to have very relevant responses, but it is now very
commercial. I asked about gold panning and it told me where to buy gold
jewelry. Over all I don't think it's a very good site anymore.
Debriefing calls itself the "worlds most powerful metasearch engine",
it says its smart, fast and understandable. It searches the web, the news
and mp3's. and it says that it recognizes the words 'and, not, or' . I
think it is for anyone looking for random things
This is a search engine where you can find anything you want
to find and faster too!. It's called "All results, no mess". There
are different sub categories that you can search through. The website
is organized making it easy to find exactly what you need to find.
"Euroseek.com" states that this is its 411: "Established in 1996, euroseek.com
is one of the largest search portals in Europe. It offers search services
on the Internet in more than 30 languages. Additional services are free
e-mail, news, weather and classified adds. Euroseek features search filters
for language and geographic regions, including all European countries,
thus insuring better results and relevance. Euroseek was formed in 1996
as the first European search engine on the Internet. The aim was to develop
an information and shopping portal focusing on Europe as a market." So
to make a long story sort you can search about stuff and many lingoes.
It seems as thought it would be an easy search engine to use because
it has many different categories: sports, entertainment, news, games,
quote of the day and even the yellow pages. The homepage itself looks
a little cluttered, but I guess it's worth if you have all of the categories.
J' ai trouv� dans ce site que l' on pouvait choisir diff�rentes sortes
de langues.Il contient aussi un moteur de recherche sur les nouveaut�s,
des photos, des vid�os, des MP3 et des FTP.Il contient aussi un systeme
d' aide, de recherche avanc�e et de personnalisation.Il' y a aussi une
rubrique pour trouver des solutions rapides. Et aussi tous les noms des
The site is split into many sections, it has 2 main sections for news,
1 for current events, and 1 for sports. The other small sections contain
travels, fun events, and merchandise.
Google is just a search engine, no directory. It uses a search algorithm
and "low-cost" PCs that are networked together. It also depends on a piece
of software created by its founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, called
PageRank. It work by using links on pages. The more links to a site the
more importance it has. Also, links from important pages weigh more then
less important pages.
It has a directory, it seems to be a division of lycos, probably more
suitable for teenagers. It has all sorts of categories, for everything
you could look for.
"IxQuick.com is a remarkable MetaSearch Engine that
has won numerous awards, praise and recognition for being the best of
its kind. It was created with researchers, educators, historians, librarians,
scholars, students and the world's scientific, literary and media community
in mind: those who are dedicated to keeping us better informed and making
all of our lives richer, easier and more fulfilling. Not an easy audience
to play to. But IxQuick� was also created to make implementation of the
search process as easy as 'child's play'. And to ensure users, everywhere,
that regardless of their quest, they will be in command of information
that is thoroughly relevant to them: without intrusive advertising hype,
unwelcome news flashes and distracting banners. " ... "When a user
enters a query at the IxQuick.com website, our powerful proprietary technology
simultaneously queries ten major search engines and properly formats the
words and syntax for each source being probed. IxQuick� then creates a
virtual database, organizes the results into a uniform format and presents
them by relevance and source. In this manner, IxQuick.com provides users
with highly relevant and comprehensive search results. "One can search
in many different languages with this search engine as well: Dansk - Deutsch
- English - English UK - Espa�ol - Fran�ais - Italiano - Nederlands -
Norsk - Polski�- Portugu�s - Suomi - Svenska - T�rk�e. I don't think this
search engine is specific to a category and there is no directory, only
a search box and several options
Lycos is a web site that has almost anything you want to find. If your
planning a vacation looking for health tips, music, books, want to chat,
need to see your stocks, looking for movies, etc. Probably if you are
looking for a certain phrase or something in general and webpages of this
then lycos wouldn't be a very good site. LYcos is arranged more by categories
that you can look through.
www.metacrawler.com is just another search engine just
like yahoo. Type in whatever you feel like into the box and hit search.
The difference between metacrawler and yahoo is after you perform a search,
it gives you ideas of new searches relating to you topic to possibly narrow
down your results.
It has a search engine feature like a google or a yahoo. But it also contains
some features like aol like an instant messenger, e-mail, and shopping.
It is one of the major sites on the web and has a lot of clients.
www.northernlight.com is a search engine that specializes
in business and world economy.
Directory Project Max
The open directory project at dmoz.com has been called "the largest,
most comprehensive human-edited directory of the Web. It is constructed
and maintained by a vast, global community of volunteer editors." This
website uses an open directory, where there are hundreds of separate groups
following your search.
Well, as it turns out, RAGING (!) search is a small link off of
altavista, it is a "text-only" search part of altavista. Although it seems
that this search engine is very small, and maybe not very popular, when
I searched for "dolphins", it gave me many possibilities, and what I liked
about it was that at the top of the page it had other questions of searches
related to "dolphins" that others had searched for. It looked something
like this: Others searched for: dolphin pictures bottlenose dolphin
Miami dolphins How do dolphins sleep? I like this because
it gave me the options to look for pictures, and not only different kinds
of dolphins, but how they sleep, which, I'm sure, is very interesting.
I think that this is actually a very good search engine for everyone,
despite the lack of decoration on the page.
This is a good site for people who want to get information in Spanish
or in Portuguese. This site uses other search engines like altavista.com
and todito.com and others. The first page says you can get first results
if you put your site on their page.
Thunderstone is a Texas-based search engine who calls their latest program
Texis. I think that they were involved in some other area of business
but they were very obscure about it.
Web Crawler is a search. It's gives the combined search results from the
following websites: fast.com, askjeeves.com, looksmart.com, about.com,
findwhat.com, overture.com, inktomi.com. It is a good way to save time
by giving results from several different search engines at the same time.
www.yahoo.com is a search engine that uses the google
search engine (www.google.com) to perform a varied amount of searches.
The difference between google and yahoo is that in yahoo, you can do so
much more than just searches. You can chat with other people, play games,
and have an e-mail account.
