What is a vertical search engine?
Google's mission is "to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful." By contrast, a vertical search engine provides access to limited subsets of information, often with greater accuracy and depth of coverage. Example includes:
Scirus - a search engine specifically for the scientific community.
Wolfram Alpha - a computational engine that attempts to answer factual queries.
What about other search engines like Bing, Yahoo and Cuil?
As of September 2023, search queries conducted at Google represent 88.46% of all searches conducted in North America, followed by Microsoft Bing (6.37%) and then Yahoo! (2.69%). Of interest, YouTube receives a greater number of searches than Microsoft Bing, making it number two on the list.
