You can search any of these 3 Search Engines YAHOO, LYCOS or EXCITE directly from this page. Go ahead and give it a try.
Most search engines give you the choice of entering words or
following a hierarchy. The hirachie has different classes like
entertainment and business. You can also type words and specify
if you want only pages that contain all searched for words or
any combination of them. It is also helpful to exclude words.
Yahoo lists URL's. In order to be listed you must list the page
with Yahoo. You can also search in usenet or for E-mail addresses.

Exite searches the web and newsgroups using a robot. A robot is
a program that systematically scans webpages. When a page is
scanned the robot depending what kind it is then indexes
different parts of the page. The actual pages not stored.

I choose to look for Spiritual psychology to see what comes up and what the
differences are on the two search engines.
In Yahoo I found 16 listings for this topic.
Excite on the other hand found 409137 entries. When I went
back and commanded the search for documents that contain both words
Excite found 13491 entries. In the next step I excluded E-mail massages.
Now I was down to 2353 entries. In additional steps I included homepage as
a searchable word and so on. The search narrows and narrows. It is always
a good idea to make a plan on what and how to search before you begin.
Otherwise it can be quite painful and frustrating trying to find
something. The information returned is just to complex. Many times
you will find the same pages over and over lited under different words.
