engine (as different from the meta or secondary engines) works best for

later for a more extensive search
Which search engine will you link to your 207-cover-page and/or your Resource Page?
Please add those search results which seem most useful for your project and a sentence or two about your evaluation of the search engines you used to your RESOURCE PAGE. You may also want to bookmark some of the Economic Geography and Location Quotient sites for later reference. Thanks!
