About the ‘Search’ Section

Wanting to find something within a website is a common problem. There are two choices here: use the website’s own search engine, or use a general web search engine restricted to that website. Often the former is the better choice, but not always. General web search engines can make use of metadata not available to individual websites, such as how often other websites link to its pages. To use a general web search engine to search within a website, type your query (search terms) into the ‘search for’ box, and click on the name of one of the search engines. Note that the last tool, Feedster, is a search engine for RSS/Atom feeds, and will generally only include weblogs and news sites.

Below is a listing of the tools in this section, along with their descriptions.
