Everone appears to have become Googlized when it comes to Internet searching. OK, Google is a great search engine, but there are lots of other great search engine out there in cyberspace! No single search engine can track all the info on the internet. It is just too vast with millions of new pages of information being added every day, to the billions that are already there.
Just because you can't find it on Google, doesn't mean it's not out there. There are lots of other very good search engines you can try. Here is an extensive list of good alternative search engines to try, it is by no means a complete list of all the best that are out there. Bookmark them in your browser once they are opened, or simply bookmark this site which I have created which lists them all on one page. http://www.ozemail.com.au/~vital1/lstlinks.htm
If you are looking for Australian information try one of these.
Here are some excellent International search engines, be aware that you can also search Internationally through the Australian search engines above.
All The Web, ....... Alta Vista ....... Hotbot. ....... Lycos, ....... Excite ....... Yahoo. ....... Go.com. ....... Looksmart ....... Teoma ....... NBCi ....... Google ....... Northern Light ....... Starting Point. ....... Einet Galaxy. ....... LinkMaster ....... Jump City
Here is a list of meta search engines. A meta search engine is not strickly a search engine in itself, it allows you to submit a search query to half a dozen search engines all at once and bring back a list of their first 20 to 100 results. (It allows you to do searches through lots of search engines all at once.)
You will also find specialized search engines for specialized subjects, or for finding people's email addresses or business contacts.
Why not try going to a search engine and typing “search engine”, (use the quotes it tells the search engine that you are looking for the phrase search engine.) You will be supprised just how many are out there. Country specific search engines can be an excellent way to find specific country related information, like tourist information, hotel booking info, or plane or bus travel information. Break the mold, be adventurous, try something different.
