Are you tired of looking at the same search engines day in and day out? Looking to get some new information? Why not try out the following unique search engines for a different perspective of what is out there on the Internet when it comes to everything from Arizona wedding photographers to zookeepers!
NowRelevant.com is the best new search engine to hit the market of alternative search engines for niche topics. What is special about this search? You can find information about any topic that has been posted within the last 14 days, and only information posted in the last 14 days.
NowRelevant scans over 55 million news sources and blog feeds to find only the latest information about your niche. There is also a slider that appears after you perform your search so you can select a date range of anything from the last day to the complete last 14 days worth of data.
I personally enjoy entering date queries. Entering my birthday yields exactly how old I am, down to the number of days, and other interesting information such as notable births, deaths, and anniversaries that happened on the same date. It even shows the exact phase of the moon on that day.
Twitter advanced search allows you to go beyond just what has been published on webpages, news sites, and blogs and see real time conversations about any topic. You can simply search for a keyword, or go more in-depth and narrow down your search to tweets from particular locations, tweets from particular users, tweets with that are happy :) or sad :(, tweets asking a question, and much more.
If you really want to get into monitoring conversations online for your business, your blog, or just your personal curiosity, using tools such as HootSuite will allow you to organize your Twitter searches in tabs with 10 columns each.
