I wrote in my personal resolutions post that I will do some link blogging, that is share some knowledge about links that I know about. Here is first link blogging post about various search engines that you can use. If you have your own experiences to share about any of these search engines, your views are welcome. 🙂
Alternative Search Engines to Google
You can compare the results of your search from various search engines like Google, Yahoo, flickr, msn, ask in the same window. You can add this as a widget in your blog, web site. It is available on Facebook as well.
Search everything in one place: Google, Snap, yahoo, stumbleupon, del.icio.us, Twitter, Flickr, Newsvine, Amazon, ebay, Cnet, imdb, and so on. I am tired, can not possibly list all of them together. Make this your homepage.
It is a visual search engine, you can deepen your search using the tags that appear as word cloud. There is also a version available for kids.
Another aggregate search engine that you can use.
A visual search engine. It did work for me when I tried to search free ebooks. Though I find KartOO icon bit irritating when it arrives on search pages.
Here is an search engine that helps you locate people who share your similar interests like music, travel, design. It is still adding people to site.
You can connect with people who share your interests like Spanish language, travel, books and so on. You can also sign up for the service.
Another search engine that can search people as well as companies. However, so far this search engine functions for US people only. I added it here because some of the readers of this blog are in US.
Find Music and Sounds
A special search engine to search your song, lyrics, and band.
FindSounds Search the Web for Sounds
A free site that can bring you clips for the sound you were looking for. Did you want a violin or a tabla sound, you have it here. 🙂
You can search postcards using this search engine. I found this rare and old one on searching for love.
Search for Articles
As name suggests, here is your search database for scientific literature, papers and articles. You could write your next scientific blog post out of it. 🙂 Currently, this web page takes you to CiteSeerX.
Find journals for free if you know the title or author.
Create Your Own Search Engine
You can create your own personalized search robot. I guess it is helpful only if you are working on a research project or you can engage your kids in their search. For a quick search, google is better. 🙂
This is your personal search engine that you can custom as per your needs. It can look in specific web sites you want and avoid those that you don’t want.
It has same almost same function as rollyo. You can customise your search, using this search engine.
Flickr wallpaper search engine is one place where you can find quality wallpapers. Somehow I could not get the right size for use, though.
