If you are an Internet user than you know how vital search engines are to your daily existence. Search engines help people find information, research facts, get directions and find new places, but with so many search engines out there is there really a difference between them all?
The answer to that question is there are slight difference between each search engine that makes them different from each other. Yes, all search engines find websites and display information on keywords but there are little benefits offered by each search engine that make people keep returning to them time and time again.
Here’s a look at some of the differences and benefits of using some of the main search engines.
Everyone has heard the words “Google It” because Google has become a major powerhouse in the search engine field. What makes Google so powerful is its ability to tell if a website is truly information or if it’s one that is placed there by other sites to gain notability. This helps weed out useless websites.
Yahoo used to be a powerful search engine before Bing and Google came along. Now Yahoo Search is powered by Bing. What made Yahoo Search a favorite is it offered users the ability to see websites that were similar in nature to the searched keywords. Yahoo also heavily pushed websites that were from their internal database, so users who found those credible would be directed to those types of websites first.
Search engines might all appear alike but they offer slight differences that keep internet users coming back for more.
