Meta Search Engine Characteristics
A meta search engine itself does not index or rank web sites. Instead,
it queries multiple web sites simultaneously and will deliver a
page of combined results of the best sites from each search engine.
The higher you rank on each individual search engine, the higher
your site will rank on a meta search engine.
Note: You don't need to submit your site to metacrawlers
as they query other search engines to get results.
The Major Metacrawlers
Popular metasearch site that sends a search to a customizable
list of search engines, directories and specialty search sites,
then displays results from each search engine individually. Owned
by Go2Net, which also owns MetaCrawler.
It is one of the oldest meta search services. MetaCrawler queries
the top search engines including Altavista, Looksmart, Lycos,
GoTo, Direct Hit, Google, and Infoseek (Go Network).
Sends search requests to major search services, with results a
bit heavy from search engines that sell listings.
