About the Guide!
New users and experienced gurus agree: the Guide is the only search
site you need to bookmark. We provide access to twenty of the web's
best indexes, and unlike other "meta" sites which require all options
to be left on the default settings, the Guide is designed so that a
complete set of options is available to custom tailor each search.
Don't need all the options? Don't worry! They're already optimized to
provide you with the best results.
The Guide first opened on April 12, 1996.

Attention! Internet Explorer users - make us your default search
site! Simply download this file and
select "open" when prompted.
The Amazing Internet Guide is simple to use. The first step is
to select an index from the list on the bar to the left. You can simply
start at the top of the list and work your way down, or you may want to
select your favorite.
Next, fill out the form by entering in the keyword(s) you want to
search for in the dialogue box and change the options to suit your
needs. If you are unsure what some of the options do, simply leave them
in their default positions. Click on the "Reset" button if you want to
clear the dialogue box and return all options to their defaults.
The last step is to press the "Submit" button or ENTER. This will send
your query off to the selected index. You should receive an answer back
quickly, but please be patient as some indexes are bogged down. If you
receive an error message please check our troubleshooting
document for possible causes and work arounds.

Do you know of a great Web-based Internet index that we don't have?
Send us the address and we'll check it out!
If we add it to our list we'll respond to your email to let you know.
Please note, we only accept indices that search web sites or usenet groups. Also,
we cannot submit your sites to the indices on this page. We have provided,
however, a link to each site's registration page.

Description of features:
- Indices that offer Web Sites allow you to search either a site owner's description or the
actual content of web pages and other resources available on the Internet.
- Usenet newsgroups are groups of message bases that are updated
regularly. They provide candid conversation on almost any topic, from politics to computer hardware.
- News services provide up-to-date news and information from a variety of sources.
- Some indices provide unbiased Reviews of selected Internet Web sites.
- Telnet servers allow you to log on to computers and Bulletin Board Systems
that are connected to the Internet.
- Gopher servers provide an additional (and sometimes quicker) way to surf the Internet.
- Searching for media files allows you to find pictures, sound files, videos and even Java programs.
- Company directories searchable databases of business names,
addresses, phone numbers and other relevant information.
- Catagorized Sites allow you to easily find different sites on
the same subject matter.
If you are receiving an error when you query an index, check this list for a possible solution:
- The keyword(s) you entered could not be found.
Try another index with your keyword(s).
- The index you queried was down.
Select another index to use your keyword(s) with.
- The index you queried changed the format with which it receives requests. Try another index.
- Another unforseen problem has occurred.
If it happens consistently, email us with the problem. Please include any error messages that appear.
