More Search Tools, Guides, & tutorials
Due to its rapid rate of change, the search engine world is very difficult to stay on top of. As the Web grows, the monumental task of cataloguing it becomes ever more challenging. Consider the size of this immense resource. Vast, sprawling, and growing exponentially, the Web is now estimated to be nearing four billion pages, expanding at the astonishing rate of 7 million new documents per day! Web servers are groaning under the weight of roughly 400+ million sites, with new domains continuing to be registered every two seconds! Thousands of search engines and metasearchers all claim to make your job of finding the meaningful tidbits in this massive information glut easier. These tools each work differently and all have different strengths and weaknesses. New search tools emerge every day. Robots work around the clock. Databases and indices swell. Old favourites are evolving, disappearing, or merging. Keeping track of this monumental resource is a full-time job. The sites listed here are dedicated to that thankless task, and can provide more up to date information than we could hope to. Other sites on this list are excellent sources of general search information and tutorials, similar to WebLens. Enjoy.
