Search Engines and Subject Indexes
A Short Introduction
This introduction to searching the internet gives a brief explanation of serveral terms and defines different types of internet pages for searching like individual search engines, meta-search engines, subject indexes, and more...
Individual Search Engines are used to search for a subject by entering a word or words describing that subject. These search engines will return a list of web sites related to that subject. Meta-Search Engines allow a search to be submitted to several search engines at the same time.
Subject Indexes are for those searchers who know the topics that they are looking for and want to browse through lists of subjects related to these topics. Internet Portals are hybrids containing links to both search engines and subject directories. Kid Safe Search Sites are directories and search engines which have been screened or filtered to remove objectionable content.
Specialized Subject Indexes and Search Engines are search engines and directories for one particular topic such as movies, medicine or government information.
All-in-One Search Pages contain forms which let you submit your search terms to search engines and directories individually from that search page without having to travel to the web site of each search engine.

Individual Search Engine Sites
A Short Introduction
Search engines index web sites using electronic means such as spiders, robots or worms which roam the web and compile a database of information. In its basic form, the results list from a search of this database contains a list of web sites which contain that search term, and the placement of the web sites on that list is based upon the frequency of the appearance of that term, its location on the page and similar factors.
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.

Further Topics, Searching the Internet
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.
For sure a well written story is based on facts and presents them in a neutral way, without being sensational by exaggerating the given information. Try to write in the style of a good newspaper and not of a tabloid press which achieves its number of copies merely by overdoing of facts. In the end you can earn the respect of your readers by written good stories and this respect than also transfers to your website. The visitors of your site will trust you and the information you publish and therefore will appreciate the products and services you offer. For this it is also useful to publish you stories in social networks und to associate them with your profile. In this way your readers can check your profile first and then visit your website.
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.
