Web Searcher Sites

Home page > This Web Searchers page

More links may be added ... and 'dead' links removed ... and
slow and/or really-obnoxious links removed, whenever I revisit this page.

Table of Contents: ( of this page )

  1. GOOGLE web searchers (and DMOZ Open Directory Project)
  2. YAHOO web searchers
  3. Web REFERENCE resources (encyclopedia, dictionary, thesarus, etc.)
  4. "DIRECT" web searchers (more --- in addition to Google and Yahoo)
  5. "META" web searchers (combinations of direct searchers)
  6. SITES WITH LINKS to many web searchers
    (including sites that "search for searchers" or "find finders")

The 'DIRECT' and 'META' groups are basically in numero-alphabetical order by site name.

Some of the web searchers in the 'DIRECT' group are actually meta-searchers, but they are so 'smooth' that they appear to be doing their own searching. I may move some of these to the 'META' group, someday.

End of Table of Contents. Start of Groups of Links.

Note :
You can use the Find-text facility of your browser to find keywords in this page
such as 'proximity' or 'google' or 'directory' or 'dictionary' or 'archive' or 'meta'.

I'm still looking for a better search engine.
Here is a suggestion for a major improvement.

Bottom of Web Searchers page.

There are many more 'meta' search engines out there. They come and go.

And 'direct' search engines seem to get absorbed/acquired/merged into others.

You can put the names of a few of these meta-searchers in Google --- to find web pages that provide links to even more "meta-search" engines. And, thus, you may also find more "direct-search" engines.

To see some current, best-of-class search engines, you can see the bottom of a search page of the DMOZ Open Directory Project (dmoz.org). In July 2006, the search engine links being shown at the bottom of ODP results pages were:

AltaVista - A9 - AOL - Clusty - Gigablast - Google - Lycos - MSN - Teoma - WiseNut - Yahoo

In December 2014, the bottom of ODP results pages showed:

AOL - Ask - Bing - Blekko - DuckDuckGo - Gigablast - Google - ixquick - Yahoo - Yandex - Yippy
