How to find stuff on the Internet

February 15, 2010 Comments off

Having trouble finding information on the Internet?  Use a search engine. What is a “search engine?” Search engines are software programs that continuously search the Internet and compile a database. When you want to search for something, the search engine looks through its database to find what you want.  Here’s a listing of some of the most popular search engines:

www.google.com

www.yahoo.com

www.altavista.com

www.ask.com

www.msn.com

www.dogpile.com  (this search engine piles several of the best search engines into one and “fetches” the information you want.)
