ABSTRACT
The article presents information on several Internet search engines. As a Web search engine, Ask.com works much like Google, and the same search on both will usually produce similar results. Ask.com also classifies the results by subject, automatically grouping pages that have words or phrases in common. Kosmix and exalead are two other search/classification engines that take the classification function into new and intriguing directions. The search engine exalead classifies not only by subject, but also by several other important Web page characteristics. Kosmix produces topic-related classifications for several high-demand subjects, including health, travel and autos.
