Q: What are the most popular search engines on the Web today? I know about Google and Yahoo!, but aren't there others?

A: Yes, there are several other search engines besides the ever so popular Google and Yahoo! When people first started getting into computers and using search engines a lot more, Yahoo! was the most well known and the most used. In time, Google surpassed that with some new and distinct features. But, what some people don't know is that there are many others that you can use as well.

Here's a list of a few of them:

  • AltaVista
  • All the Web
  • Ask
  • Dogpile
  • Excite
  • LookSmart
  • Lycos
  • MetaCrawler
  • MSN Search
  • Netscape Search
  • WebCrawler
  • …and many others not listed here.

All are very good and can help you get your search done right. If you still like using Google or Yahoo! there is nothing wrong with that either! But, maybe you can mix it up a little next time you do an online search!
