What's the Best Engine? Search the web with the best site for you.

Hey, this is Brian Carter, founder of PulseMed.org.  I've been writing to regular folks about alternative medicine solutions for the last 5 years now, and we've reached more than 300,000 people around the world.  
My first book, Powerful Body, Peaceful Mind: How to Heal Yourself with Foods, Herbs, and Acupressure will be published by the end of November.  I literally can't wait to talk to you about it and answer your questions!  That's why I'm starting a series of Teleseminars.  These are phone conference presentations that everyone calls into.  I'll speak on a topic like 'Boosting Your Energy' or 'Introduction to Acupuncture', and then, answer questions from the audience.
Right now you can help me decide which topics to do first - just fill out the survey on this page.  Then, if you want us to contact you later, click on the email link under my black and white photo to tell us.  I look forward to meeting you and working with you!

What's the Best Engine Search Tool?
by Brian Benjamin Carter, MS, LAc

Brian Carter created PulseMed.org in 1999 to promote his services and expertise. Since then, more than 400,000 visitors have read his articles, and he has honed his web design, graphic design, and traffic building skills even further.

We all need to search the web. So, what's the Best Engine Search site? Well there are so many different search engines- I'm going to review them for you below. I really think it depends on what you're looking for, and how you want to search, so you're going to have to decide for yourself.

But at least you'll know what each search engine does before you leave here!

If you want to search fast, Google is your best engine search. It's also the biggest.

If you want to compare your search results quickly before investigating them further, your best engine search bet is ZapMeta metasearch. It gives you Quick View previews each page within your results, and you can preview the sites without leaving the engine's search results.

If you have a broad academic subject and need pointers to quality sites, the best engine search for you is the Librarians' Index to the Internet

If you have very specific ideas about your results, like what kinds of files you're looking for, or what domains you don't want to appear, etc., use AllTheWeb's Advanced Search

You know that Yahoo originally was a directory, not a search engine, right? A directory allows you to browse through categories. Well, you can do both with Dogpile. And the cute dog wags its tail every so often.

Along similar lines, if you also want to know what other people are searching for in the same category, Altavista is the best engine search for you.

Wow, if you want something really cool, you want to search and see categories and see a visual map of the results from multiple engine searches, and even refine them and search further, use the Kartoo metasearch engine. Pretty cool. Although I don't know what their character is- some kind of creepy little arabic vulcan?

Teoma, based on expertise and link popularity, yields very relevant results and allows one click search refining by subject.

Those are all the engines that most of us will ever need. But if you want more information, check out this resource on even more of the best engine search tools or get a PDF chart of them all.
