Jerri Collins (2019): »News Search is sortable by relevance and date, with search results returned from sources as varied as Fox News, ABC News, and Topix. The Yellow and White Pages searches are standard, with fields to search by business name, individual name, etc. Throughout all these various searches (except for the Yellow and White Pages), the ubiquitous "Are You Looking For" feature is always there, steering users to better-worded search queries.« Source

Critical points

There's a local filtering system I can't change - Dogpile News Search only shows me German results - a bit disappointing for today's news search [kd].



Features & Functionality

Eyal Rabinovitch (1997): »From the home page, you enter your query and specify whether to search the Web, Usenet, FTP sites, or news sources.« Source
