Searching the Web

Search engines like Google have significantly simplified our lives. No longer do we have to go through web sites and spend a great amount of time to find the pages we are looking for across the Web. The Internet is huge, search engines try to make it smaller – by providing you with related results for any queries. If you are in need of a specific web page or want guidance for virtually anything, utilize search engines. Google is the most popular search engine, although there are many others that provide different and sometimes better results. The quality of a search engine is based on personal preference, you should attempt to utilize multiple search engines when searching the Internet for a certain page or information. Other popular search engines are MSN, Yahoo and Ask. All three search engines use different algorithms from that of Google’s and are all independent of one another. Therefore you should rarely find a search where the results are exactly the same across all four search engines.
