A search engine designed specifically for students. SweetSearch helps students find outstanding information, faster. It enables students to determine the most relevant results from a list of credible resources, and makes it much easier for them to find primary sources. Not only obvious spam sites are excluded, but also marginal sites that read well but lack academic or journalistic rigor. As importantly, the very best Web sites that are often buried on other search engines appear on the first page of SweetSearch results.
