Searching for Things

The many search engines of the Internet, more specifically, the World Wide Web use software programs called spiders, wanderers or 'bots, (robots), to gather information frome web sites, (by "crawling" them.) Then they index this information for searching. The meta information and indexing can take up huge amounts of computer memory. (Both storage and active memory.) The methods by which they index and the algorithms by which they retrieve and rank data can be different. As a result, different engines can produce somewhat different results. When looking for things of importance, it's usually wise to use at least a few different engines.

Google: Well known, pehaps overexplosed. Great product, but give Teoma a shot as well.
