Search engines allow you to search for information on the web by using keywords. They then search their database of sites for those words.
Many search engines also divide the Web sites in their database into categories called subject directories. These categories allow you to navigate through a subject from general to specific.
Metasearch engines send the keywords you enter to a number of search engines.
