Traditional Web Search Sites, Part 2
This short article lists parallel Internet query engines which you can use to submit your questions to several search engines at one time. The biggest meta engines having the most visitors however can be found in part 1 of our engine list.
Web search engine
A web search engine is designed to search for information on the World Wide Web. The search results are generally presented in a list of results and are often called hits. The information may consist of web pages, images, information and other types of files. Some search engines also mine data available in databases or open directories. Unlike Web directories, which are maintained by human editors, search engines operate algorithmically or are a mixture of algorithmic and human input.
Directories of Quality Web Sites
Subject indexes are for those searchers who know the subject that they are interested in, and want to browse lists of Web sites on that subject. Directories differ from search engines in that the content is chosen by human editors. Consequently the composition of the directory will be dependent upon the subject knowledge and selection skills of the editors. The emphasis of Directories of Quality Web Sites is on editors who may be librarians or subject experts.

Stories from A-Z
Further Topics, Searching and Finding
If you want to add your website to one of our pages or to another list of websites normally it is only necessary to provide the title and a description of your site - but often it is also possible to publish a whole story which points to your website. This method has advantages since one can provide information about topics which interest the reader in order to win new visitors for your homepage.
The most important point when writing such stories is to care about your reader. Offer well structured information and opinions which provoke further interest and deeper discussions. In order to achieve this you should focus on topics that are not self-evident and prove this way that you are an expert in a given field who is able to present new information in his stories in an entertaining way.
Being neutral is an important element when publishing information: There is a reason why newspapers with their political coverage own a better reputation than the tabloid press which focuses on gossip and tittle-tattle. Honest information about various fields of knowledge can also easily be published in social networks where they can be associated with your profile. In this way the interested reader can learn more about you and recognize you as an expert in your field which ledas to more trust in your website and the products and services offered there. Especially in the internet the reputation of a website is important since there is no direct contact between humans and it is therefore difficult to come to an competent opinion about a site.
Many webmasters donít consider that also the website which is referenced by a story has to offer thrilling and interesting information about the topic of the story. Even an excellent story does not help much if you website does not contain further information which fascinates the new visitors and motivates them to stay on the site. For sure it is not always necessary to offer this information in text form: Many visitors like interactive sites, thrilling videos or artistic presentations that make them laugh, entertain them or enchain them in another way.
Also the stories on the page http://www.aval
g.html were written by various authors in order to win new visitors for their websites. If you want to point to this page you can use the following information about our website and the page itself:
- Website: Our short description is "Webshop for Gems".
- Page: Websites and stories about "Further Topics, Searching and Finding" can be found on this page.
In the end well written stories can be much more than only a possibility to find new visitors for oneís homepage - they can build an emotional connection between you and the visitors of your site and enhance your reputation as an expert in a given field of knowledge. For this reason stories that point to your website are much more valuable than references that only use a title and a short description.
