In a nutshell, weâre like Google for science. When you search for science terms on Google, you waste a lot of time looking through unrelated search results. However, when you search for something on The Science Dictionary, we show you only scientific websites. We use the same engine that powers Google, then apply a proprietary technique on top of it to filter out any non-scientific results. Because of that, you only get the best and most relevant science results whenever your search on The Science Dictionary.
The Science Dictionary is a specialized science search engine that queries billions of the web's top science pages for scientific information. The Science Dictionary was founded in 2006 and has since processed over three million (3,000,000+) queries. Every month, we receive over 250,000 page views from over 40,000 people worldwide who visit our site to learn more about a particular science topic. The Science Dictionary has been featured as a trusted resource by numerous educational institutes (K-12 and higher education) in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Researchers, students, and professionals around the world use The Science Dictionary as their goto website for finding relevant scientific information.
The Science Dictionary leverages Google's over one million servers and enormous web index of over 13 trillion web pages to perform its search queries. On top of Google's search index, The Science Dictionary has implemented a filtering system that determines which websites are trusted, science websites and which websites aren't.
In layman terms, every time you perform a search on The Science Dictionary, The Science Dictionary first accesses Google's 13 trillion page index to find matching pages. Then, The Science Dictionary takes the returned results and filters them so that only pages that are thematically matched with your search term are returned.
