5 Search Engines You’ve Probably Never Heard of
The internet is a big and potentially scary place, with countless millions of websites and resources available through a global network, navigating the entirety of it by yourself is practically impossible. Since, the vast majority of the internet could never be discovered without assistance, we utilise resources such as search engines to find what we need.
Practically, everybody is familiar with household names such as Google and Bing, but did you know that there are many other search engines that can provide more specific assistance in finding content? To shed light on this subject, let’s look at five search engines you’ve probably never heard of (but nevertheless, provide real value to their users).
While major search engines like Google may be perfectly fine for general web searches. Sometimes, you need a bit more detail. Browse in WolframAlpha; which provides substantial flexibility, computing prowess, and a load of potential queries you probably hadn’t considered prior.
WolframAlpha allows you to access a plethora of statistical information, mathematical results and other facts that traditional search engines might not provide easily. Whether you want to search by topic or by a specific command, this search engine is perfect for more refined search queries.
Have you ever wanted to find information on a specific website or community forum, but hated the output of their built-in search function? Thankfully, for those who are responsible for managing their own blogs and websites have other options.
One such option is Elasticsearch Kibana. This useful search engine platform integrates seamlessly with websites to provide relevant information both on-site and from across the web. You can try Elasticsearch with Kibana for free whether you’re a standard user or a webmaster.
Have you ever wondered what you might be missing in search results between different search engines, or depending on when you search? Then Whos Talkin may be a solid search engine choice for you to consider.
With this search engine, you can create topic pages with each search query that you can access anytime. The results are aggregated from across multiple search engines and social media networks, giving you a better and fuller understanding of what is available and what is late-breaking on a particular topic.
If you need to find various documents, opinions, written material straight from the source or published work that might not be widely circulated, then Scribd is an excellent search engine to use. Built around hosting and distributing original content and curations, this platform can be easily used to find content by type, length, size, and age, among other filters.
Anybody who wants to browse videos may often head to a site such as YouTube to find what they need. However, browsing a comprehensive video selection aggregated from multiple platforms and search engines gives users more selection and detail, which is why 360Daily is such a great source.
Not only can users find videos from major websites such as YouTube and Hulu, but videos from lesser-known sources can also be found. This makes it a great source for browsing news clips, enjoying entertainment, and even sampling video-blogs from reputable sources.
These five search engines may not be well-known, but each provide unique value depending on your specific needs. The next time you need to fetch information, consider putting one of these sources to use – you’ll likely be pleasantly surprised.
