Want to Get Results From Multiple Search Engines? Yes, You Can!
It is no secret that Google is dominating the search engine market. However, it is also no news that there are people (about 35% of users, actually) who prefer other search engines – such as Yahoo!, Bing and others. Blekko is gaining some ground as does GoDaddy… It this situation, it was only a matter of time when another level of search is created, one level “above” search engines. www.megasearches.com is exactly this thing – a search that combines several search engines results, presenting it to the user in a tabbed way.
The site, created by Arshat Ali Suzon, a California State University graduate student, integrates results from Google, Yahoo!, Bing, Ask, AOL, Wolfram Alpha, Baidu, Snap and Wikipedia – you can browse through those by clicking the appropriate tab on the search page. You can also define which search engines you are after, by pressing the “+” sign; creating several “configurations” is also possible. In addition, there is a “More>>>” tab, that will present a list of eleven more search engine sites (including Lycos, AltaVista, WebCrawler and About.com). By clicking on each of those, you will be taken to a new page, presenting results produced by the selected SE.
The site has been around for about eight months now and already has gathered several thousand of adept in 25 countries. Is this mega-search the next big thing in the search industry? Let’s wait and see.
