Search the Web More Efficiently: Tips, Techniques and Strategies (Part I)Written by Daniel Bazac
Search Web More Efficiently: Tips, Techniques and Strategies (Part I) By Daniel Bazac - November 6, 2003 Copyright © 2003. All Rights Reserved. Studies show that after email, searching Web is most popular activity on Internet. Searching is easy; finding what you're looking for can sometimes be difficult. Hopefully advice below will make your next Web search a breeze. Do you really need Web? Before using Web to search for information, you'll have to ask yourself if Web is most appropriate medium to use to find your information. You can find a florist shop in your neighborhood faster by using local, printed Yellow Pages instead of using Web. And sometimes a library can give you better, more comprehensive answers than Web. However, in most of cases, best and fastest way to find information is... a Web search. Obviously, first thing you need to search Web is a computer with Internet access. Before really starting your search, you'll have to decide which browser you are going to use. As a reminder, a browser, according to WhatIs.com is a program "that provides a way to look at and interact with all information on World Wide Web." You can select a popular browser such as Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla or Opera or you can use an alternative browser. My favorite: Avant Browser. (I have NO connection with them) Keep in mind that some browsers are faster or have more options. You can download these browsers from their companies' web sites. Tools for searching Web There are many search tools available: search engines, subject directories / virtual libraries, invisible (deep) web databases, meta search engines, etc. A search engine is a keyword searchable database of Internet files that uses a software program to continually scour Web. The resulting information is then indexed and stored in its database. My favorite search engines are: * Google™ [ http://www.google.com/ ] * AlltheWeb [ http://www.alltheweb.com/ ] * MSN [ http://www.msn.com/ ] * Teoma [ http://www.teoma.com/ ] * AltaVista [ http://www.altavista.com/ ] * WiseNut [ http://www.wisenut.com/ ] A subject directory (web directory) is a searchable collection of Web pages gathered, selected and organized by human editors into hierarchically subject categories. A virtual library is a web directory that includes highly selective links, chosen mostly by librarians. Web directories cover a much smaller proportion of Web but using them will bring you more highly relevant results. The largest web directories index a few million pages compared with billions of pages indexed by some major search engines. Remember that web directories - like search engines - do not search Web directly. Instead, they search their own databases of indexed Web pages. Also, be aware that directories might not be up-to-date. Some search engines are in fact hybrid search tools because they are both search engines and web directories. (Google™, for example, has a search engine and a directory, powered by Open Directory
