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.
