Search Tip

Tuesday’s Technology Tip
(Little bits of information to hopefully make your computing life easier)

Google is by far the most popular search engine, but certainly not the only one. Each search engine has its own “formula” for finding results. Google provide results based on how many sites link to the result sites. Teoma (www.teoma.com) provides results based on how many sites link to the result sites within the subject being searched, and also offers tips for refining a search and resources from experts.

This is easier to see by doing – try a search for Martin Luther King in both Google and Teoma to compare. Also see the following link for a comparison of 3 “big” search engines – Google, Yahoo!, and Teoma. http://www.infopeople.org/search/guide.html
