There's no denying that the big search engines like Google and Yahoo are very useful, but when I need specific information I sometimes find it's better to use a smaller, more targeted search engine.
This is especially true if you're looking for information specific to a country. That's where the Directory of Search Engines (www.searchengines.ultimate-resources.com ) comes in handy.
This is a page of links to country-specific search engines, and you'll be amazed at how many there are.
There are five search engines that pertain to Haiti, for example. Tiny Liechtenstein has four. You'll find more accurate information quicker by using these search engines, and it's certainly faster than slogging through hundreds of pages of hits on Google.

It seems like data have not been upgraded for a long time.
As for Poland, about the half of search engines does not exist more.
Anyway, may be usefull for specific needs.
Thanks!

But I tried the 12 links for Poland and they all worked...
The UAE trials resulted in 8 out of 9.
