One of the best resources that are available to
you on the Internet are what are known as search engines. Search
engines crawl the entire Internet adding billions of web pages to
their database. You might ask how search engines do this? The
answer is that search engines follow all the hyperlinks on every
web page and they index web page after web page.
Now, why are search engines useful to you? Since search engines
index almost every website and web page that exists, their
database has all this information that can be utilized by you. For
example, let's say you want to find information on nutrition, all
you have to do is visit a search engine, type in the keyword
"nutrition", and within seconds you will have access to thousands
of web pages about nutrition. It's truly amazing and you have to
take advantage of it!
The two most popular search
engines that exist today are
Yahoo. So, the first step to
finding any type of information would be to visit one of these
search engines such as Google. Located on the home page of these
search engines is a search box where you would enter the keyword
or key phrases that you are trying to find information on. Once
you enter your keywords into the search box, click on "Search" and
you will instantly have thousands of websites and web pages that
appear in the search results.
Now that you know
something about search engines, let's move onto
which is another wonderful resource of the Internet.
