Nothing lasts forever in the world of search engine optimization. The world may worship Google for now, but it wasn't so long ago when Yahoo! was at the top. It's safe to assume that 2004 will be a year full of change, but one can only wonder whether it will bring excitement or frustration.
Inspired by this discussion, which contains alternatives to DMOZ, we thought it would be interesting to explore some alternatives to Google.
Try to take some time this week to review a search engine you've never used before and share your thoughts. You may review the search engine from the end user's perspective, or you can go a step further and actually submit your site to the search engine, then provide a review it from a website owner's perspective. It's up to you!
A few things to consider:
Are the search results useful?
Is the interface user-friendly?
Would you recommend using this search engine?
Start off the new year by trying a new search engine -- and tell us what you think! We'll be featuring the responses to this thread in an upcoming issue of WebProWorld, so stay tuned...
