A portal is just another word for links to a website outside of your own. For instance the infoseek go network has links to other domains.

To show up on those portals you have to go to those domains that host the portal.

This is just my simple way understanding of it.


>I want to know the difference between a Search engine and a Portal . How are the two different ? Is yahoo a search engine or a portal?
>I tried to search for my site by giving the URL in Yahoo but got no results. Where is it better to get entry of the web-site --- On a Portal or a Search Engine ?
>I have heard a lot of people visit portals. So it maybe helpful if I get my website listed on it.
>Also, how different are Portal and Search Engine in working ? What do they provide? Some people call Yahoo a Portal. Please give a list of Popular Portals.
