Where can I find more information about smaller search engines?  I only know of the three main search engines: Google, Yahoo, and Bing.  Well I want to submit my site to smaller search engines too.  Thanks for any help.

Small search engine = Small traffic.

In the US, the most diverse market, the research company Compete gives the rankings as Google  74%, Yahoo 16%, Microsoft's Bing 6%, Ask 2% and AOL (powered by Google) 1%.

That leaves about 1% for the rest to squabble over, though that still translates into 100m searches in one month alone – and that's only in the US. Worldwide, in the past quarter Google has more than 80% of searches, while Yahoo and Bing have 9% and 5% respectively, a situation Microsoft hopes to change this year.

You can find more information about smaller search engines by doing a simple internet search. There are many resources available that list and provide details on smaller search engines. Some popular ones include DuckDuckGo, Ask.com, and AOL Search. Additionally, there are search engine directories that can help you discover even more options. Don't forget to check their specific guidelines for submitting your site as each search engine may have its own submission process.

 smaller search engines that you might find interesting:

1. Yandex: It is a popular search engine in Russia and other parts of Eastern Europe. You can submit your site to Yandex through their webmaster tools.

2. Baidu: This is the dominant search engine in China. If you're targeting a Chinese audience, consider submitting your site to Baidu.

3. Ecosia: It is an environmentally-friendly search engine that uses its ad revenue to plant trees. You can submit your site to Ecosia by following their submission guidelines.

4. StartPage: It is a privacy-focused search engine that provides search results from Google while protecting your privacy. You can't directly submit your site to StartPage, as it relies on Google's search index, but ensuring your site is indexed by Google will make it accessible through StartPage.

 more smaller search engines that you can explore:

1. Dogpile: It is a metasearch engine that gathers results from multiple search engines, including Google, Yahoo, and Bing. You can't submit your site directly to Dogpile, but making sure your site is indexed by the individual search engines it uses can increase your visibility on Dogpile.

2. CC Search: It is a search engine specifically designed for finding Creative Commons-licensed content. If your site offers Creative Commons content, you can consider submitting it to CC Search.

3. Qwant: It is a European search engine that prioritizes privacy and does not track users. While primarily serving Europe, it is accessible globally. You can submit your site to Qwant through their webmaster tools.

4. Swisscows: It is another privacy-focused search engine that does not store any personal data. Submitting your site to Swisscows is not currently an option, as it relies on Bing's search index.

 few additional smaller search engines you can explore:

1. Gibiru: It is a privacy-focused search engine that claims to provide uncensored and unfiltered search results. You can submit your site to Gibiru through their website submission form.

2. Ekoru: It is a green search engine that uses its ad revenue to fund ecological initiatives. While it primarily focuses on environmental topics, you can still submit your site to Ekoru and potentially reach an environmentally conscious audience.

3. Mojeek: It is an independent search engine that aims to provide unbiased and spam-free search results. You can submit your site to Mojeek through their website submission form.

4. Boardreader: It is a search engine specifically designed for searching across forums and online communities. If your site has active forum discussions or community engagement, you can consider submitting it to Boardreader.
