A: Sometimes the keywords are in the hidden HTML. When you hit view source, it will show them.
Other times, the search engines indexed a page, and then the page contents changed. So at one time the page had your keyword(s).

You can add your own search engines, and also we will be coming out with Search Engine Extensions that can be plugged-in to WebSeeker to add more search engines.
