The Best Search Engine

If you’re just not finding the information you need searching on Google, try our “Best Search Engine”.  It will help you to find high-quality technical information that is hidden from Google.

Our best search engine was developed with the help of PhD’s who told us that this is a similar process to the one that they use when doing serious and deep technical research.

Below is our seven-step best search engine search algorithm.   For all of your important searches, use our “Best Search Engine” seven step process to supplement your Google search. You’ll uncover lots of in-depth resources that you will simply not find in Google!


1.  Use the site search box at PDF Search Engine to find free PDF files on your subject of interest.

2.  For a different perspective, try these other Internet search engines:

 3.  Search USA’s Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC®) for your subject of interest.  The DTIC is the largest central resource for government-funded scientific, technical, engineering, and business related information available today.

6.  Search the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) for your subject of interest.  The NTIS serves as the largest central resource for government-funded scientific, technical, engineering, and business related information available today.  They provide businesses, universities, and the public timely access to approximately 3 million publications.
