More on Search Engines – Ask v. Google

September 29, 2006

When it comes to using search engines, we should always be looking for incentives to step outside our comfort zone.  Love Google, always have; love its simplicity, gmail, GoogleEarth, and am a big fan of my personalized Google Homepage for news at a glance and all manner of useful widgets.  That said, check out LibrarianInBlack‘s post on Ten Reasons Librarians Should Use Ask.com Instead of Google.   It’s always a good idea to run your searches through a different search engine if you really care about your results. Thanks to Nicole at What I Learned Today for that!
