Tried Yandex? Russian Search Engine Available in English
The search engine Yandex is big in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus,Kazakhstan, and Turkey, and an alpha version in English has also been available for awhile. Yandex builds its own search engine databases and currently has a web, images, and video database on the English Yandex site plus web-based email. All versions of Yandex also have a cache copy of pages, which makes it an alternative source for cache copies. On the search results page, the "more" link finds other page matches from that site, and you can do a follow-up search just within that sites. Some sites' icons show up on the left, and unusual among today's search engines, Yandex dares to number the results!
Its advanced search page is, like too many others, not linked on the home page, but it is linked near the top search box on results pages. It not only includes date, site, filetype, and languge limits and a title search option, but it also shows the chosen limits in the grey box at the bottom highlighted in this screenshot. The advanced search page even includes an option for turning off lemmatization (searching all grammatical variants) by clicking the "used in text" option as in "this exact form."
Yandex.com may not yet have much market share, but it is well worth a look for anyone interested in a Google alternative.
