Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to expound on search engine limits and to offer more novel approaches to searching the web. Design/methodology/ approach - Examines alternative search engines to Google. Findings - Not only does Google have competitors and augmenters, but they keep on coming.

While Google continues expanding and evolving, others persistently appear on the horizon with their own slant. As always, librarians need to stay aware. Originality/value - The paper offers examples of more specialized search engines that provide a valuable alternative to Google in many areas and across all file formats.
