Search Engines are the web based tools that help you find the information which are available on the Internet. We all know Google, Bing and Yahoo are the most famous search engines, among of these Google is leading ahead of all of this.
Moreover, there are 100’s of other search engines as well like ask, blekko, duckduckgo and many more but today I want to share 5 search engines which I have found while browsing the web which you might not know but should know.
Here are those 5 search engines:
A very simple search engine with a very simple and user friendly interface. It shows you the web results against your queries as well as social media results. You can also search images on this search engine.
2. Smash Fuse
Smashfuse is a true social media search engine. It shows results from almost all social media in the form images but when you click the results it may take you to webpage, image, tweets and videos.
Topsy is a social media search engines and especially designated for Twitter. Even it is a certified partner of twitter and it shows results in which those search queries are mentioned somewhere. It makes products for search, analytics and draws insights from conversations and trends on the public social websites like Twitter and Google+.
4. Social Mention
Social Mention is a search engine which is somewhat like Topsy but it gives depth insights about the search queries by providing the results and analytics which shows how frequent users search that particular query and what are their sentiment towards it.
5. Wayback Machine
Wayback Machine is also a kind of search engine which shows you the older look of website. It keeps on taking snapshots of website at regular intervals. Even you can find the details about the website which doesn’t exist anymore
In this image you can see that sky colored circle on the dates. When you click on these circled date it will take you to the snapshot of the website which was taken on that particular date. Even if you have redesigned your website you can use Wayback Machine to see the old look. This tool has helped me many times at my work. Thanks to this!
These are few of amazing search engines which I have found over www while surfing. I have shared this on TTW to make the readers aware of these. I hope you would enjoy using these search tools online. Let me know your feedback in the comments.

There is no internet without this search engines i think. Nowadays everyone using this search engines to find anything they want. Because we can use this search engine to download songs, movies, videos, games, mobile applications, torrent files etc. etc… it goooooooooessssss on….
I know wayback machine of alexa, but i didn’t hear about the rest of search engines. Anyway thanks for sharing this. Surely i ll check this all and i ll share this post to my network.
Thanks Nirmal for reading the post and taking time to comment! Search engines are very useful for web users because these helps us find the info. Thanks for sharing the post.
I was expecting duckduckgo in the list but actually it made it to the place above the list! Just after reading this post I tried out Smashfuse. It was really nice and effective. Especially for the fact that it searches social media making it something unique.
I have tried WayBack Machine some time back too. I used it to find the changes in Google and Facebook home pages for an article.
Thanks for the information about all these search engines Atish bhaiya.
Duckduck is famous search engine bro. I have made a list of SEs which are not famous but we should know about these. Wayback machine is one engine which I have been using since 2011.
Thanks for coming by Mahaveer. Keep coming.
Hi Atish,great post☺. Junoba and SmashFube are new to me.
Social search engine is very useful.
I am glad that you find something new here. Keep visiting.
Apart from submitting urls to these other search engines, I don’t think they play any significant role in searches. Google and Bing are the ultimate search engines. Others retrieve the search they make from the top ones!
I have left this comment in kingged.com – the content syndication and social marketing platform for Internet marketers, where this post was shared.

I agree with you Sunday. they don’t play any role but they are good ones for what they made for. Thanks for coming by.
Nice post, all are very new for me except junoba. Good to know about them and their features. Thanks to share your list.
Thank you so much for stopping by Sonam. Glad that you found few new ones apart from one you know already. Keep visiting.
Interesting selection, I have to admit that I was expecting something else from this post, but I was nicely surpriced. Yeah social search is a topic that definitely need dedicated artice.
May I know about your expectations from this post? I would try to satisfy to that. thanks for stopping by.
Social Search Engines are very popular with us now days, not like before we would go to the library and stay there for a very long time till we get what we are searching for.
Today we just enjoy going to the library to read books, history and reminisce (but we can now do this online too), while search engines do all the research for us, from a students homework and project, workers, bloggers, you name it search engines got almost everything for you, from one country to another, language by language, it’s so fascinating.
I haven’t heard of these search engines before, but It looks like I must try them out.
Thanks for posting!
Social media is the current and future trend so these search engines will grow more and will have more significance with time. Thanks for sharing your views over here Ann.
This is indeed a surprising one!
I know only few search engines like Google, Bing Yahoo but the list given is indeed new to me, i need to check it out and know more about it. Thanks for your research and development of this post.
But I think when we have those giant search engines like Google Bing etc do we need more search engines, i think almost all shows some what similar result is not it?
Would like to hear more on this line
May you have a wonderful and profitable week ahead
Hey Atish, I read this post notification at Kingged.com and kingged it and posted the above comment there.

Yes, we do use Google to search everything but these are mainly social search engines which looks to be good which you can use someday just to feel different.
Thanks for coming up with this wonderful list, to be sincere i never heard of all this search engines until now.
I love reading researched articles, this shows you make some proper research before publishing this article.(THUMB UP).
There is no doubt, we all know the power or search traffics and getting extra traffics from all the listed search engines will definitely be a added value thing.
