AbstractA method, system, signal, and software program for handling search through the use of a page index. Searches are performed across a plurality of content information sources and content types. For every search that returns unique search results, the page index is updated to include links to those pages. Accessing the same page multiple times does not cause multiple entries in the page index, and no search results nor page index entries are deleted as a result of additional searches performed.
