Alternative Search Engines posted a list of 100 alternative search engines.  The advantage of using one of these niche-specific search engines is that is zeroes in on the specific content you want, and excludes much of the irrelevant & excessive info you don’t need.  Below are the major areas in which these resources specialize.

– Ebook & PDF Search Engines
(Highlights in this genre include Comic Seeker, Free Ebooks, Google Books, )
– Audio & Music Search Engines
(Highlights in this genre include BeeMP3, Find Sounds, and SkreemR–I like the names of these!)
– Video Search Engines
(Highlights in this genre include Hello Movies, which searches NetFlix, Hulu & more simultaneously, Blinkx, and ClipBlast)
– RapidShare Search Engines (file sharing)
(Highlights in this genre include Rapid Share, Files Pump, and RS Finder).
