Where Can I Find … ?
According to worldwidewebsize.com, more than 8 billion web pages are indexed by the major search engines, including Google, Bing, Yahoo! and Ask. With so many sites to search though, it can be a challenge to find exactly what you want online. Luckily, there are some great kids’ search engines that only include kid-friendly sites. KidRex, kidrex.org, uses a custom Google search to filter out adult content, and its search results are specifically from kids’ websites.
Another great option is Kigose, kigose.com, which combines search results from multiple kid-friendly search engines. You can use the drop-down menu to search for specific types of content, such as images, videos, games or books. In the search results, you can look at the results from each search engine by clicking on the different tabs.
Some people like to find sites by using a directory, which lists sites by category and subcategory. For kid-friendly directories, try KidsClick!, kidsclick.org, or Open Directory’s Kids and Teens section, dmoz.org/Kids_and_Teens. These sites make it fun and easy to stay safe online!
