How to find information from Internet - Part XI Specialised Search Engines

We have discussed mainly three categories of search tools 

  •  Directory-based search engines 
  •  Spider based search engines 
  •  Meta Search Engines

These general-purpose tools are usually sufficient for routine searches. However for complex or focused searches, you need more specialsed tools.

As case study, we discussed resources on business directory search last week and reviewed more than 30 directories on India and a few select world directories. This week we review more resources on special search engines.
