- Searching the internet with Google -- A link to their "advanced searching" / scroll down on the linked page
- Search Categories -- List of main categories at http://www.about.com -- Autos, Business & Finance, Cities & Towns, Computing & Technology, EducationElectronics & Gadgets, Entertainment, Food & Drink, Health, Hobbies & Games, Home & Garden, Jobs & Careers, News & Issues, Parenting & Family, People & Relationships, Religion & Spirituality, Shopping, Sports & Recreation, Style, Teens, Travel, Video Games. Each of these link to lots of subcategories and finally various subjects within that gategory. This might not be a bad place to start if you are trying to compile a universal list of categories and subjects.
- Searching by Categories -- Preliminary thoughts on the subject -- not complete -- don't take it seriously at this point
- Searching the internet by using directories -- Directories are generally human selected and alphabetical and are an alternative to using "fill-in search windows"... We think directories are more efficient and will ultimately become recognized as the best way to find information on the web -- The following is a list of directories from the UC Berkeley library

- American Society of Indexers / Indexing Courses and Workshops << http://www.asindexing.org/site/courses.shtml >> This site tells about indexing courses which evidently were originally developed for book indexing. The same basic approach can probably be used to index websites and the entire internet. The courses are for indexers (people who do the indexing) -- but the information is valuable for people who search the internet and thereby use the indexes generated by the indexers.
