One search engine or ten? Why settle for half measures?

Sunday, July 09, 2000
When searching for software, clip art, MP3s, or anything for that matter, use a 'meta' search engine. Meta search engines take a query and submit it to a multitude of diverse search engines simultaneously, amalgamate the results and then present them to you in a logical, standardized format. A single search engine cannot possibly index everything the web has to offer and as a result they miss many relevant hits. Because meta search engines have access to the leading search engines they are able to offer much more comprehensive results than any single search engine. The number of search engines utilized by meta search engines varies considerably, but obviously try to find one which searches the highest number of portals and will therefore harvest the most results. Metacrawler crawls metas like no other if you're open to suggestions.
