    with or by??

    Dear Teachers

    When you did a little research on the internet using a search engine, for now let's say the search engine's name is "gohoo" as an example,

    Which preposition is more appropriate to use in a context of
    "I searched with/by/on/in the gohoo"?

    I know most of the people now use google as a verve. but it'll be great if someone can ask this question.
    Thanks for yoour help in advance.

    Thank you very much Anglika.
    Your answer helped me a lot.

    One of my friend from Australia (native English speaker)suggested me to use
    "with",
    Does "with" work as well in this case?
