All-In-One Search Engines

Metasearch Engines allow searches to be sent to several search engines all at once. The results are then blended together onto one page. Below are some of the major metasearch  engines

Dogpile - Dog Pile is a "meta" search engine - it querries multiple search engines and gives you pages and pages of results, usually one page from each search engine. Dogpile currently gets its results from Google, Yahoo!, Live Search, and Ask – together in one search box to deliver the best combined results. The process is more efficient and yields more relevant results.

Triplify.com - It is a new search engine for finding and comparing top results for the keyword you entered to its search bar. Triplify, which, as the name implies, helps to simplify the trio search engines so that you can search, compare the search results.

 

Features:

  • Compare search results from Google, Yahoo and Live search engines.
  • Sort results by position, title, description, URL and search engine

In addition to that, the results that are produced are completely sortable – all you have to do is hit the title of the column to rearrange them as you see fit.

 

URL.com - Basically URL's a search engine that pulls results from Google, Yahoo and MSN, ranks the results on the screen according to position and allows users to rank or comment on what they see. On the whole it does the job reasonably well, and is worth taking a look at.It collects the top 10 results from all engines and arranges them in a nice tabular layout. It also offers search suggestions in case you misspell a query.
