Web Searching, Sleuthing and Sifting Lesson Six:
Using Meta-Search Engines
What is a Meta-Search engine?
A meta-search, multi-threaded or multi-search engine searches other search engines' databases in parallel (at the same time) and collates the results (which usually consist of a predetermined maximum "number" such as 10, 20 or 30). The search engine does not maintain its own database. Major differences in the meta-search engines include:
  • Selection of databases searches Submission of queries to the search engines Manipulation and presentation of results Response time
Selection of Databases Searched
Most meta-search engines will search several of the "major" search engines at once, usually: Altavista, Excite, Lycos, Webcrawler, Yahoo and Hotbot. Sometimes because of an agreement with one search engine, the meta-search service will not search another, specified, search engine. A number of directories such as Looksmart, Galaxy, and/or smaller search engines and specialized databases such as Deja News (newsgroups), stock quotes, or news wires may also be included. Sometimes this is wonderful but at other times a lot false hits from irrelevant sources can create a bad search set. This is why the ability to customize is so important being able to choose which search engines your query is sent to.

The justly famous Yahoo index. Not a search engine so much as a library listing, maintained by humans. Perhaps the broadest search engine/index is Lycos. It has the top page per site, rather than every page, however. If you want depth, try Alta Vista . Various translation services are available here too. Be advised that the nice folks from Double-Click (the ones who read your cookies and tell advertisers where you've been) hang out here. One that claims to be more complete than any other search engine is Excite . How true this is I don't know. One of my personal favorites, and one where I often search first, is Google. For another search engine, and a different method of presentation, look at the Webcrawler . Webcrawler and Excite seem to be the same people wearing different hats. Search the Usenet at DejaNews . They've become advertising-driven, and it's somewhat difficult to find useful content amid the ads. You should also be aware that the terms and conditions they've placed on messages posted through them give them rights to your words that most people don't want to give away. Still, if you want to search Usenet, there's nothing like it.

Introduction "Metasearch" engines (aka "compound" ~ "parallel" ~ "inference" engines, aka "pumps" aka "metas", aka "multi-threaded") Metasearch engines are search tools that send a query simultaneously to several search engines and Web directories... and sometimes to the so-called Invisible (Deep) Web: online informationand databases not indexed by the traditional main search engines. Advantages : they query more search engines at the same time, which is important given the low degree of overlapping among the main search engines. Disadvantages : 1) they are good mostly only for unique terms queries; 2) they spend a short time in each database; 3) they discard complex searching logic; 4) they try to "accommodate" all search engines they drain using always the same query (not very good); 5) they don't drain some important main search engines (which you should always consider using if you want to cover more than 1/3 ~ 1/2 of the Web).

Use Advanced Search to restrict your query to specific domain or file format, or find out who links to your page. Google also offers site search, for instance, narrowing searches within university site such as Nanyang Technology university. Google added video search that searches TV transcripts from C-SPAN adn San Francisco TV stations.
