FOCUS ON WIKIPEDIA -- ONE OF OUR TARGET SITES: Wikipedia is a wonderful
site with an enormous amount of helpful information. Unfortunately its organization is sometimes erratic and
confusing -- there are simply too many ways to find the information on the wikipedia pages. Its size is also a
hinderence to effective searching. We hope the following will help you find what you are looking for.
Finding Content On Wikipedia: Try the 7 methods listed immediately below.
Then check out #8 if you are interested in reading about some of the troubles
we had trying to figure out how the site works.
1) Window searching -- Go to <<http://wikipedia.org/>> and use the search widow there. If there is an article,
page, category or content with that exact title, you will be taken there. Almost any single word or simple phrase
will work. This is particularly good for finding all sorts information for specific places like cities. Type any city
name in the window and click and you will get to a page with that title and various related information.
2) FUTEF searching for topics: searching for topics in Wikipedia. Read the "about" page at the link on this line,
it is for the "FUTEF" site. In our first test, the FUTEF search box was superior to the Wikipedia alphabetical index
when searching for the topic "indexing". The Wikipedia index did not have the word "indexing -- however we found
exactly what we were looking for by typing "indexing" into the FUTEF search box.
3) Browsing the site's A-Z index: Another way of finding content -- When you are at what they call "Main Page",
click on "A-Z index" at the top of the right column. That will take you to an enormous 2-symbol index of what appears
to be subjects (there are no words telling you what this is an index of -- it could be subjects, contents, articles,
categories, portals or whatever. In any event the 2-symbols evidently take you subject matter that begins with those
2-symbols. Just browse and click.
4) More than 4,000,000 pages can be found by going to <<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Allpages>>. Each
of the 4,000+ printed lines on that page is a launching-line. Each launching line is a link that goes to a target page
that has about 1,000 topics. The topics on the target page are in alphabetical order between the two topics on the
launching-line. This is the online equivalent of the headings in a phone book, dictionary or encyclopedia. The total
number of topics is therefore more than 4,000,000 (4,000 lines x 1,000 topics / line).
5) All topics: An index of all wikipedia topics <<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Topical_indexes>>
6) A-Z lists of more than 250 popular topics: on alphabeticalist.com -- most of these links go to wikipedia topics
(see "wp" suffix) <<http://www.howto-ville.com/A-Z%20lists.html>> By the way, just one of those A-Z lists goes to
2,900 topics from the NY Times -- and each of those topics leads to hundreds of good articles.
