Metasearch Engines


Permission to reproduce ProFusion image pending.

Profusion.com is an example of a metasearch engine.

Metasearch engines search the databases of several search engines at a time (e.g., HotBot, Excite, and Yahoo).

Best for an overview of your topic on the Web, seeing which search engines will produce the best results, and for simple searches.

Downside, they don't always include every available search engine in their search options.

Other metasearch engines: Highway 61, Mamma.com and Dogpile.com
