Google and Yahoo are both good, why?

Since the start of the Internet backs in the mid 90's the biggest benefit modern society received from technology was the invention of search engines. With search engines, people could get information on anything in the world, 24 hours per day, within seconds. The problem was how was all of this information categorized and displayed to users. This is where the race for search engines started. Since then, we have had a lot of search engines come and go. However, since then two have managed to keep their ground. Google and Yahoo.

Most people these days just search Google, but why? Google may have a better search technology and more creative tools but overall they both show the same information, it's just displayed in different orders. I have personally searched for various keywords, images, news, and blogs on Google and found them on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th page. However, on Yahoo I found it on the 1st page. The same thing goes with Google. This is why they both need to be checked simultaneously. Sometimes users may not find what they are looking for on Google and never check Yahoo.

The top two search engines in this country are Google and Yahoo. They both need to be checked in order to secure accuracy of your search. is the first site on the net that makes this possible.
