Search Engines

The Internet offers a wealth of information on a multitude of topics. Search engines are an internet tool used to search the WWW for specified information. Search engines, however, can provide numerous "matches" that are of little use to you. You can decrease the number of irrelevant matches by using topic-specific words. Some search engines allow you to further narrow your search with the use of a search syntax.
MetaCrawler is one such search engine.

MetaCrawler is a search engine of search engines. After you have identified the specific words you want to research, you can refine your search by using MetaCrawler's advanced search syntax. You can specify that a series of words be treated as a "string" by enclosing them within quotation marks. You can also specify words that must appear as well as those that must not appear by prefixing them with a plus sign or a minus sign.

In the following example, pages will be selected if they contain the string "rain forest climates" and the word temperate and not the word tropical:

"rain forest climates" -tropical +temperate

Once you have refined your search parameters, MetaCrawler activates six other major search engines and compiles from each a list of the ten most relevant matches.

The ETE team has complied the following list of links for you.
