Search Engines differ because of which types of Boolean searching they do. Here are a few sites to explain about how searches are conducted, so you know why different search engines produce different results.

Web searching tips
  • Another reason why search engines differ is because once they spider sites for their database they also have links submitted to them. To find local links, it is good to check out a search engine which is native or used by the country you are searching for results in. If your family tree extends from Saskatchewan to Australia, use an Australian search engine, and so on.
