Having Trouble Finding Things?
The number one reason people visit the world wide web is to find something. That's right, people rarely "surf" the web...
More often than not, a visit to the web is prompted by the need to locate something. Whether it be information on how to start a business, the cheapest airline ticket to Las Vegas or that new portable air conditioner you've been looking for, people want something _specific_ from each web surfing session.
So of all the things you discover online, perhaps the greatest is the skill or ability to find things. After all, who out there hasn't spent literally hours searching for something online, only to end up cursing the computer and going to bed empty-handed at 2 in the morning? ;-)
Well today I'd like to help you save precious time by giving you the ability to find everything you need online a lot faster. No, I'm not going to introduce you to search engines, you probably know all about them already. Instead, I'm going to point you to the web's "meta" search engines.
What is a meta search engine?
Contrary to some people's beliefs, meta search engines do NOT search through meta tags. Put simply, a meta search engine is a search engine that searches other search engines!
When you search on a meta search engine it queries a host of databases simultaneously and returns the results to you in one list. True meta search engines represent a significant advancement in the science of searching the web.
I've been using meta engines to find things for years. Yet many people still do not know of their existence. Instead, they search like I used to -- laboring from one search engine to the next, wasting time looking through hundreds of listings at each. There is a better way, and it's 100% free!
Why use a meta search engine?
The major advantage of a meta search engine is the ability to access a cross section of engines on the web thereby greatly enhancing the coverage of your search. And a good meta search engine provides significantly more coverage than any one engine can, all within the same few seconds it takes to search any one engine.
So what meta search engines are the best?
First of all, I have to admit, I had a lot of help writing today's tip. I'm far from an expert on meta search engines so I called in a pro who has done lots of research. Megan from http://metasearchguide.com/ consults for Internet start-ups in the UK and lectures in the field of International Internet marketing. She knows meta search engines and what makes them tick! At her site she reveals her top picks. She also advises visitors to beware of the phony meta engines ...
"When reviewing the meta search engines it was interesting to see how many engines claimed to search a wide range of traditional search engines but if you actually take the time to investigate the results pages you'll see that a fair bit of bluffing is going on."
At Megan's guide ( www.metasearchguide.com ) she also explains deep space searching technology and reviews the meta search engines that offer it, and then reviews the standard meta search engines.
I tried all of the meta search engines listed at her site and my favorites are as follows...
If you're serious about finding things in a fraction of the time you're used to, I suggest you choose a meta search engine from Megan's http://metasearchguide.com/ site and bookmark it as your new search page.
