4.7. Beyond Google for News Search

After a long dry spell, news search engines have popped up all over the Internet. Here are my top two:

Rocketinfo (

Does not use the most extensive sources in the world, but lesser-known press release outlets (such as PETA) and very technical outlets (e.g., OncoLink, BioSpace, Insurance News Net) are to be found here. Rocketinfo's main drawback is its limited search and sort options.

Yahoo! Daily News (

Sports its source list right on the advanced search page. A 30-day index means that sometimes you can find things that have slipped off the other engines. Provides free news alerts for registered Yahoo! users. One drawback is that Yahoo! Daily News has few technical sources, which means stories sometimes appear over and over in search results.
