A Trip Through The Google Gateway
Would you use one book to do all your research on a subject? Probably not.
That is what you do when you use Google as your only source.
Google, as wonderful as it is, is not the only search engine in town. It is huge, yes, but still limited. However, it is a great gateway to many other search options on the Web.
To demonstrate this process, I used "Gun Control" as my topic. I looked up "Gun Control" in nine different search sites. Some results were similar to each site and many others wildly different .
To begin I've listed the first seven items from Google. Following are the different results from the other sites I searched. The sites are a mix of search engines, databases, and directories or Meta Search engines.
