Yandex is an excellent alternative to Google. Not only does it work in the same way, so you'll immediately be familiar with the interface, but it also provides extra functionality that goes way beyond anything that Google can offer. It's a real search engine for real information professionals. If you're tired and fed up with the limitations that Google places on you when you're trying to search, take a look at Yandex.
This is one of the videos in my Advanced Internet Search course, so hopefully as well as being a useful and interesting video in its own right, it'll give you some idea of the way that I've put other videos together. This video covers the basics of Yandex; there's another that goes into more detail on the many excellent advanced search functions. The idea is that you will have access to all of them - currently 6.5 hours worth - all of the time, so you can quickly refresh your memory when it comes to running searches, or trying to find a more effective search engine than the one that you're currently using. If you want more information on the courses, you can go to my training site at http://philbradleytraining.weebly.com/ Anyway, enough of the advert - I hope that you find the video useful to you.
