Search engines are very useful when you need to find broad information on specific topics in cyberspace. If you don`t know exactly what you`re looking for and don`t know where to find it on the Internet, search engines become a very useful tool.
You will find yourself using three or four of these sites for the majority of your Internet searches. Once you are online, you will also wander into what I call reference sites. These are specific sites that can be used to "zero in" on specific subjects.
You will find these to be very useful in your day-to-day lives. Make yourself a hero - share these sites with your kids. They will find these sites especially useful when doing research for school projects.
After surfing these sites, maybe you`ll be able to consider yourself an expert on just about any subject. Spend a little time at these sites, and, who knows, you may be ready to sit across from Regis going for that million dollars!
