Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

How to Search the Web is intended for those who use the Web to find things. Those in this category include researchers, librarians, journalists, executives, students and the millions of surfers who regularly use the Web to pursue their varied interests.

As the Web continues to expand-now estimated at about 100 million sites and counting-this very expansion threatens to overwhelm the user and make it difficult, if not impossible, to zero in on material of interest.

If the Web is to realize its potential, there must be an easy and accurate means of finding information in cyberspace. That is where search engines come in. How to Search the Web explains, in non-technical terms, how the major search engines work and describes their strengths and weaknesses. Basic and advanced search procedures are discussed, with sample queries included throughout.

How to Search the Web is a vital reference, helping to bring a world of information to your fingertips.
