Google ( has a well-earned reputation as the top choice for searching the Web. Google’s crawler-based search engine provides comprehensive coverage of the Web and great relevancy. This is most people’s first stop searching for results on the Web.

A big part of Google’s strength is in letting you search for more than just web pages. Clicking on any one of a series of “tabs” across its search bar lets you search for images, Usenet newsgroup discussions, the latest news from more than 4,500 news sources compiled completely by a newshound robot and additional information through the Open Directory. Additional features include catalogue searching and product searching (

Google has also developed an impressive solution to running up against the “dead link” or “page not found” responses by offering a cached or archived view of pages that are no longer live. Another feature to speed searches that often go awry through typographical errors is an intuitive spell checker that corrects your mistakes and then automatically initiates the search with the correct terms.
Superb spell checking, easy access to dictionary definitions, integrated stock quotes, street maps, telephone numbers and other baseline information needs are al part of Google’s strong service offering. It’s no wonder many users have downloaded the Google Toolbar to add to their browser make searching even quicker.

Google’s search prowess is so widely accepted that Google’s unpaid editorial search offering is used to provide search results to a number of other search engines. Google also has a cost-per-click program called AdWords that discreetly places paid ads on Google as well as to a number of partner sites.
