Who letrepparttar wolves out?

The internet wolves, that is.

Yeah, they're out. The wolves, that is. And they're acting like -- well, they're acting like wolves. Imagine that.

Banana tree plants do what banana tree plants do. Underrepparttar 119102 proper circumstances, banana tree plants produce, well, as you know, they produce bananas.

Try as you might to change a banana tree plant's behavior, it ain't gonna happen. You can dress that tree up to look like a rubber tree. But you won't get any rubber. You're still going to get bananas.

Dogs sniff doggie butts and lick themselves. Dogs have even been known to poop on your clean floor. But hey, they're just acting like dogs. You expect this type of behavior from a dog.

What type of behavior are you accustomed to from a wolf?

You wouldn't expect wolves to show you loyalty, would you? Nope. You'd expect a wolf to take whatever it could from you. And run off intorepparttar 119103 night.

Never to look back. No phone calls. No postcard. No how'ya doin', can I help? Wolves take what they can grab. Don't plan on hearing from them -- until they're hungry again. Wham, Bam, Thank You, Mam.

You could try to contact them. It'll waste your time. But you could try. Wolves don't answer phone calls or emails when their bellies are full. They only howl when they're inrepparttar 119104 hunt.

Yeah. I'm referring torepparttar 119105 internet wolves. If they looked like a wolf, you'd know how to stay away from them.

Butrepparttar 119106 internet wolves come at you all dolled up to look like a, well, they might look like a rubber tree.

You're not stupid. So how do they get away with that?

These wolves will go to extreme lengths to fool you. They sellrepparttar 119107 hell out of their trustworthiness. They'll even pretend to be real people. Just like you.

Some ofrepparttar 119104 better Sourcers come fromrepparttar 119105 computer industry and work independently as well as have an extreme amount of focus, patience, and inquisitiveness.

--- Data Mining ---

Data mining uses various techniques to examine data and organize that data into a meaningful presentation. This is also a part of an area known as Knowledge Management---an entirely different world and best left for a later tome.

* Finding Information

As applied to Internet Sourcing, data mining consists of a set of search techniques (i.e., Flip Search, X-Ray, Peel Back) to acquire information. These techniques allow you to locate relevant and hidden information onrepparttar 119106 Internet that would otherwise be out of your reach. Each ofrepparttar 119107 techniques, mentioned shortly, can be applied to any ofrepparttar 119108 larger search engines such as AltaVista ( and HotBot (

* Organizing Information

Once you locaterepparttar 119109 information, you have to organize it by relevancy. This can be accomplished with various tools, including, Correlate ( This tool allows you to organize links, text, and documents in a tree format to better view and understandrepparttar 119110 information you've acquired.

--- Various Search Techniques ---

Locating information onrepparttar 119111 Web is not as straightforward as you might think. Of course, you can always do a simple keyword search and locate a few thousand links, of which only 25% to 50% are truly relevant to your specific search. To really dig intorepparttar 119112 Web, you need to understandrepparttar 119113 three search techniques explained below. To present valid examples,repparttar 119114 following explanations userepparttar 119115 techniques for searching potential candidates and resumes onrepparttar 119116 Web.

* Flip Search

Flip Search locates items by link association. For instance, instead of searching for potential candidate pages based on specific keywords,repparttar 119117 Flip Search returns pages that are 'linked to' a target Web site. Links might be personal homepages, colleges, industry organizations, companies, publications, or associations. Each of these 'linkers' represents a potential of providing candidates or related information.

Two ofrepparttar 119118 primary search engines that support various Flip Search mechanisms are as follows. Once you understandrepparttar 119119 premise for this search, you can determinerepparttar 119120 specifics forrepparttar 119121 other major search engines onrepparttar 119122 Web.

- AltaVista: Onrepparttar 119123 'Advanced Search' page, inrepparttar 119124 Boolean Query text field, enter ' AND homepage AND "java programmer"' and press Enter. With this search string, you're searching for all links that are associated withrepparttar 119125 keywords 'homepage' and '"java programmer".' You can refinerepparttar 119126 search using skills, job titles, and any term that might refine your search target.

- HotBot: Onrepparttar 119127 'Advanced Search' page, enterrepparttar 119128 URL or domain name inrepparttar 119129 Search text field. Inrepparttar 119130 Look For drop-down box, select 'links to this URL'. Refine your search by entering skills, job titles, and any term that defines your search target inrepparttar 119131 'Word Filter' text fields.

Examinerepparttar 119132 results as you work with different searches to see how this search works. It is extremely powerful and can generate numerous relevant links for any given search condition.

* X-Ray Search

Most sites have documents that aren't accessible through links on their site's pages---hidden from view, yet publicly available. The X-Ray technique searches files in a server and lets you view most of these 'hidden' documents.

To try this out, go to AltaVista's 'Advanced Search' page and type '' inrepparttar 119133 Boolean Query text field. Like 'link:', 'host:' tellsrepparttar 119134 search engine to look for keywords in documents onrepparttar 119135 specified Web site---the Web site forrepparttar 119136 '' domain.

When you clickrepparttar 119137 'Search' button, you could end up with several million documents from your target host. To obtain a more manageable group of results for this example---look for freelance writers. For example, enterrepparttar 119138 following search string intorepparttar 119139 Boolean Query text field: AND "freelance writing" When I didrepparttar 119140 search, I got about 100 results. Consider that, intuitively, many people name their resume page 'resume.' With this assumption, let's fine-tunerepparttar 119141 search again to look for resumes usingrepparttar 119142 following search string: AND title:resume AND "freelance writing" The word 'title:' tellsrepparttar 119143 engine to look for keywords inrepparttar 119144 tag in<IMG height=12 src="/the2.jpg" alt="repparttar 119145"> header of a Web page---<IMG height=12 src="/the2.jpg" alt="repparttar 119146"> text that appears at<IMG height=12 src="/the2.jpg" alt="repparttar 119147"> top of your browser's window. <br><br></font></td><!-- google_ad_section_end --></tr><tr><td>Cont'd on page 2 ==<a class="mlink" href="2-How_Many_Wolf_Tickets_Have_You_Bought_Lately-19102.htm">></a></td></tr></table><script type="text/javascript"><!-- google_ad_client = "pub-5766870852072819"; google_ad_width = 728; google_ad_height = 90; google_ad_format = "728x90_as"; google_ad_channel ="8831454965"; google_color_border = "CFB9A1"; google_color_bg = "CFB9A1"; google_color_link = "000000"; google_color_url = "431B02"; google_color_text = "431B02"; //--></script> <script type="text/javascript" src=""> </script> </td> </tr> </table> <table width="770" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td height="48" align="center" background="images/bg_nav_bottm.jpg"><span class="style3"> © 2005<br> <a href="terms.html" rel="nofollow">Terms of Use</a></span></td> </tr> </table></td> </tr> </table> <script type="text/javascript"> var HASH_ESCAPED="%23"; function TrackIt(adUnit){ if (window.status) { var adDomain = escape(window.status.substring(6)); var pyPage = document.location.pathname; var params =; var hasAnchor = params.lastIndexOf(HASH_ESCAPED)!= -1; params = hasAnchor?
