As a nonfiction writer, I find search engines indispensable. Below I’ve listed my favorites. Next month I’ll share tips on how to improve Google searches!

Blekko.com — a spam- and virus-free search engine that allows users to search news, jobs, blogs, and more

Clusty.com — a meta search engine that clusters results, includes customization tabs, and can search the blogosphere

Dogpile.com — a combined search of well-known search engines

Draze.com — a comparison search engine with free e-mail, web hosting, and more

Goodsearch.com — a search engine that donates a penny to a school or nonprofit with each search

Ixquick.com —  a search engine that can search in several languages and is popular in Europe

Mamma.com — a metasearch tool for webs, news, image, video, and Twitter

MsFreckles.com — this Swedish engine can search images, blogs, definitions, news, 35 languages, stocks, products, movie reviews, and more

MSN.com and Yahoo.com — two popular searches I find handy when I’m already on their opening page

WebCrawler — a source to search images, video, news, and local information using Google, Yahoo! and other popular search engines
