Search with a difference

The sum total of all wisdom is not necessarily found in the first three responses provided in one of the popular branded search engines.

Sometimes you need a specialist search engine to really get the information and insights you need.

In this week’s ABC Australia’s radio segment Adelaine, Nadia and I take a look at some of the other great search engines that are out there, including:

Blogs
IceRocket.com – Searches for content from blogs, Twitter, Facebook and more.

Images
TinEye.com – a reverse image search engine – this finds out where an image came from, how it’s being used and where you can find the best resolution version.
PicSearch.com – Searches through more than 3 billion online photos.

People
Pipl.com – Search for people all over the world from a simple interface.
123people.com – Aggregates public information from a number of sources to give a spread of person-specific information.

Music
MixTurtle.com – Basic music search engine by artist and / or song title.
SongBoxx.com – Search over 7,000,000 tracks from the one location.
Music-Map.com – Type in your favourite artist and then a map of similar artists will be returned (very cool).

Audio and Video
PodScope.com – The web’s leading podcast search directory.
Blinkx.com – Search over 35 million hours of video.
