    Why Are Search Engines So Popular?

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Is there a guaranteed formula for success online? Many well-visited sites have found the answer: provide a search engine for the Internet public at large. Why are they so popular? Hint: it isn't just that no one can find anything without them. Keep reading to learn their secret.

    Search engines are consistently tops in traffic lists, and often referenced even outside the online world. Even those who arenít highly familiar with the mechanics of the Internet can easily use search engines, and often do. When it comes to popularity online, search engines seem to know how to corner the market.

    Whatís the secret of this traffic-driving success? Is it simply because no one can find anything without the online search engines? Or does the siren song of search offer more than what meets the eye? Why are search engines so popular?

    The find-and-retrieve function provided by search engines (and sites which include search on their pages) canít be beat. This easy-to-use application saves users the time and trouble of hunting and finding, clicking endless Web sites to find the one small piece of the Internet they seek. Search makes the Internet work. Without it, we would all simply be floating around cyberspace and never accomplishing anything, lost in a mindless jumble of Web-based content.

    And if you ever need to find something online, you probably turn to the search engines first. In fact, youíve probably got a favorite engine that you use all the time. Doesnít everyone?
