Web Search Alert: What You Don't know about Search
Engines can Hurt You!
Is Google your favorite search engine? Do you use
meta-search engines and other advanced keyword search
tools to make light work of your web searching? If
so, you don't know what you're missing! Become a more
aware consumer of Internet search services by learning
the ways that search engines deliver search results.
Apply the skills you learn to any new search tool
that you encounter. PLUS, learn about the "invisible
web" : the hundreds of millions of web pages
that search engines don't index, and some great tools
for finding them. This session is not for beginners,
but for those who already have a list of "favorite"
web search engines and meta-engines.
