alltheweb

Causes and effects of drought. 13,900,00 Useful, got the info I needed. 1st was Wikipediea, a lot of govt sites as well.
 

webbrain

Causes and effects of drought. 0 Not really, like I said, stuffed today. Obviously stuffing up today.
 

yahoo

Causes and effects of drought. 14,500,00 Very useful as it seemed to get more Australian content and at a simpler level A lot of Australian sites and seemed set at a more high school level. Less technical than alltheweb.
lycos Causes and effects of drought.   Fairly useful. Best feature is that it shoes images of the webpage which help you judge the usefulness of the site more quickly. Somewhere in between Yahoo and Altheweb, used some sites from both.
