Mecklermedia provides this search engine that covers all things Internet. The Lycos powered search engine contains sites selected by (Mecklermedia) editors. However, this is a search index, not a subject directory, as the large amount of retrieval from simple queries (in the hundreds of thousands) aptly demonstrates. Users must skillfully apply the sparse syntactical tools available at present (phrase searching and indirect or implied Boolean AND/NOT) to narrow their retrieval. Testing of the site revealed duplications in retrieval as well as retrieval that was unrelated to Internet content (as might be expected from a search index). As the site and its search language are developed, it can realize its potential as a useful tool for webmasters, system administrators, and other information technology professionals.
