Gregory Tsigounis, Editor Premier Issue ship among search engine compon  Welcome to the premier issue of Newbie News, the newsletter for people just starting out with the Web. Each  month, Newbie News will bring you tips, hints and insights that will improve your understanding of the World  Wide Web and enhance your experiences as a Web user. We'll try to point out interesting Web sites, explain how  things work, and even get you started writing your own Web pages. If you're new to the Web, Newbie News is for you. Read on, learn and enjoy! In the Driver’s Seat: Web Directories he Web is huge and getting bigger even as you  read   this.   It's   a  community   with   millions   of  members,   all   of   whom   have   the   ability   to  produce, as well as consume, information. With  all of that information out there, one of the most essential  skills for anyone hoping to make productive use of the Web  is knowing where to find the information they need. T Sometimes you'll get lucky and see an ad for a product or  service that interests you which includes the address of an  associated Web site. However, most of the time you won't  have that luxury, and then where do you turn?   Fortunately, there are numerous search tools available on  the   Web,   each   one   vying   for   your   attention   and   the  opportunity to solve this very problem for you. Each of  these   tools   attempts   to   distinguish   itself   from   the  competition in various ways, but the general approaches to  the problem fall into two basic categories.
