Now because of Jane's expertise in the field, she knew that the web sites at the top of the first page would not need to be the best solutions.
Dick was leaving over Jane's shoulder looking at this incredible sight and began feeling overwhelmed and disturbed. Dick thought that this was going to be easy. "Oh my!" said Dick. Jane felt Dick's apprehension and told him not to worry. She would simply narrow the search by typing in a more specific search term. Jane typed in "Individual Health Insurance Quotes". Great success, there were now only just over 1 million results. "Oh my!" said Dick and Jane.
On the first page alone, there were words like affordable, free, medical, individual, state, national, easy, cheap, benefits, coverage, customized, low cost, personal, family, information guides, comparisons, insurance company specific. "What do we do now?" Dick questioned Jane.
"I suppose we should select a web site that offers multiple quotes." said Jane. Jane clicked on a web site that offered free quotes, and their Health Insurance adventure began.
