Search engines are specialized Sites that allow you to search for other Sites that contain information on a particular topic. Usually, you simply enter a topic and the Search Engine will return a list of Sites that relate to your topic.

Search Engines are basically the electronic equivalent of the Yellow Pages. They are particularly important if your Site's target audience includes people who need to find your product or service, but who aren't aware of your company or organization's existence.
