UK search engines are a good example of specific country search engines. In most cases, they exclude web sites which
do not have a top level country domain name (such as .fr, .de, .uk). They can often produce very targeted search results.

UK Search Engines

Click HERE to find people!UK search engines are a good example of specific country search engines. In most cases, they exclude web sites which do not have a top level country domain name (such as .fr, .de, .uk). They can often produce very targeted search results.

Since we are UK-based, we thought that we'd show a little parochialism by listing some of the main UK search sites. Some of them offer global coverage, but generally they focus on UK Web sites. It is common for US-based search engines to open up local versions. Yahoo UK is a good example.

Mirago
A fast and frequently updated UK resource. Good for business searches. You can confine your search to highly specific parts of the UK (e.g. areas of a specific city).

Try it from here:
UK Plus
Confined to UK sites submitted to UK plus. Now owned by the Daily Mail & General Trust. More a directory than a search engine.
http://www.ukplus.com
All Search Engines UK (a Meta Search Engine)
Let's you say how long you want to wait for the results. I said "5 seconds". It took over 60 seconds! But it was worth the wait. Shows you from which search engine it got the results, and what position the page is in the engine. Useful for ranking reports!

Scoot
A useful 'where to find' directory of businesses and services in the UK. Find a local plumber here!

Yahoo UK and Ireland
All the benefits of the parent Yahoo, but with a UK and Ireland focus.
http://www.yahoo.co.uk
