Smaller Search Engines May Prove the Right Match For Your Research

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on July 20, 2004

From today’s San Francisco Chronicle, this article reviews some alternatives to search engine powerhouses Google and Yahoo, several of which you may have heard of and/or use now, such as clustering engine Vivisimo and Topix.net (which bills itself as “The Internet’s Largest News Site). But other suggested sites may be new to you and worth a try. These include Find.com, focused on sources for business research (in beta, and offering a range of search features that include Boolean operators, stemming, proximity and grouping) and the open source engine Modex (which was unavailable at the time of this posting).
