Strategies for Searching the Web
The World Wide Web is a massive and dynamic collection of information. The task of finding specific information may be accomplished through the use of search engines or directories. A search engine is a type of software that searches an index of Web sites and returns a list of sites that match a search phrase. The index may be created through the use of a crawler or spider that scans Web sites automatically. By contrast, a directory is categorical listing of Web sites that is compiled by people. The examples shown in the table below illustrate some of the differences between Web searching tools.
