Search Engines

Google is an example of a search engine.

Google page

When you enter your search in a search engine, it searches within its own database of web pages for the keywords you enter, wherever they appear on a Web page.

Note that Google automatically inserts AND between terms.



Use search engines:

* to find specific terms or phrases
* to find well-known entities, such as IBM or government agencies
* to find news, travel, and shopping services

Another major search engine is Microsoft's Bing.
