Next to email, search is Internet users’ primary activity. But most people don’t realize that there’s a LOT more search engines out there than just the Big Four: Google, Yahoo, AOL, or MSN. [Lifehacker]

Listed are:

  1. Clusty – metasearch engine;
  2. Indeed – job search engine;
  3. Isohunt – Bit Torrent search engine;
  4. FoodieView – recipe search engine;
  5. Ditto – free image search engine;
  6. Healthline – medical information search engine;
  7. FirstGov – an absolutely mammoth search engine/portal that gives the searcher direct access to searchable information from the United States government, state governments, and local governments;
  8. AuctionMapper – search engine that focuses only on eBay listings;
  9. Daypop – current events/blogosphere search engine;
  10. Blinkx – search engine that allows you to search for audio, video, and podcasts using not only keywords and phrases, but also content in the actual clips that you’re looking for.
