Abstract

Performing a category search to identify categories of web sites that relate to a search term includes receiving at least one search term that then is compared with a hierarchy of category identifies, and with terms related to one or more categories, to determine whether matches exist. A category identifier is selected based on the matches that are determined to exist within the hierarchy and the terms, and at least the category identifier is displayed. Searching different data stores based on a classification of a search term may include receiving at least one search term and classifying the search term among at least first and second categories. Website search results obtained from searching multiple electronic information stores may be displayed transparently without distinguishing the electronic information store. The results may be combined in a single list of results.
