So, I bet you are wondering what the heck Kartoo is. Am I right? Well, so did I and I was really surprised to find that it is a Meta search engine. Yeah I know, who needs another search engine, right? Well, I do. This one is different though, which begs the question of how? I must say, I can’t wait to tell you!

First of all, this site requires FlashPlayer to be installed. If you don’t have it already and want to get it, you will find the directions as to where you can go to download it right below the main search field.

Ok, the main difference I saw in this search engine is that It displays the search results much differently than any other search engine I’ve seen. It gives you visual results that are spider webbed together to show relevance. It also shows topics that could be cross-referenced from your topic. Cool, huh?!

You will find the mapped results of your query in the middle of the page and on either side, you will find more results displayed. On one side, you will see sponsored links and on the other, you will find topics that could relate to your query, as well as, other popular searches.

If you need help navigating, there is a Help section that you can get to in several ways. You can put in a query and click OK. Then, when it brings up the next page, you will find help at the top of the page. Scroll over it and there is a drop down list of the different help sections that you can check out. Lastly, you can go there directly from the main page by clicking the More Information link. There you can find the help sections on the side menu.

You can even ask this search engine questions. It does search very thoroughly when it is asked a question, but make sure you don’t leave off the question mark. You can also search in more than one language too, which I thought was pretty cool.

I’m off to play with this nifty search engine. Being a visual learner, this engine just rocks my socks off!
