My personal search engine of choice is www.google.com
sunflow, what you can try is "defining" what to search for..
for example, say you wanted ot find one piece yellow pajamas from ralph lauren.
try this in your search box
pajamas+one peice+yellow+ralph lauren
this will search for web pages that have all of these terms in common, and only show pages that have all of the search terms on it. Keep in mind that the more terms you add the less likely you are to find anything. (I'm told this is a boolean function)
now, if you are interested in finding, for example:
archie comic books for sale
all you need to do is put quotation marks at the beginning and end of the search string
"archie comic books for sale"
this will search for web pages with that EXACT phrase in them.
hope this helps
also, most search engines have advanced search features.....google does....im not sure about webferret

you could use boolean operators or truncation to help define your search

Boolean Operators can really help,also add thesee things,
i think GOOGLE gives the best of results on any kind of topic you can imagine...Altavista is also KOOL...
