5 Useful Search Engines You’re Not Using
Google is great, and for the foreseeable future, it will remain to be my main source for searching on the web. However, Google isn't the only way to find information on the internet. There are a lot of useful search sites out there.
Here is a list of a few of my favorite search sites:
- iSEEK Education
- This searching site is specifically designed for students, teachers, administrators, and caregivers. This means it's safer than a traditional site, and has some neat features designed with educators in mind, such as the ability to find lesson plans.
- Wouldn't it be nice to find the top search results for all major search engines? Well you can! Dogpile searches all of the major sites for you, and puts them into one result so you can take a look at what sites rank the best overall.
- A cleaner search that doesn't track your search history. But my favorite part is all the fun things you can do with it! (see what I mean, view their "goodies" page here)
- Wolfram Alpha
- "A computational knowledge engine"...I'm not sure what exactly that means, but you can find a lot of detailed answers to scientific and mathmatic questions here. If you play around with it, you will find some other neat functions, like this "planes overhead" search.
- This is a search engine made for students, where every website included in the search has been evaluated by research experts. Visit their site to take a look at other searches the provide.
What do you think of my list? What would you add (or remove)?
