QWhy is there more than one search button?

AThere are over 100 search buttons. You can try them all. The two main types of web searches.

The VISIBLE WEB  is searched with search engines such as Google, Yahoo, & MSN
Search engines find content in web pages. The search engines used here are Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
Google has a restriction of only 10 words, so multiple searches are used to achieve the desired results.
Some of the searches are limited to specific genealogy web sites like RootsWeb and others.
The INVISIBLE WEB has no common search tool. Each database must be searched separately
The invisible web is a term used to describe web pages that are not indexed by search engines like Google.
Much of the invisible web is database content. This WebSearch searches of over 100 specific databases not indexed by Google. Each database has its own search form that is automatically initialized by the names you enter.
