Links to Meta-Search Engines
 

Remember: 

Most meta-search engines do not:
  • Return more than the first 10-30 records actually present in the target engine
  • Carry over syntax (Boolean, field search, etc.) as you entered it
  • Cover all of even the three largest search engines
These are most useful when:
  • You are searching for a single, very rare, word
  • You don't care to find all of the relevant records (but in that case, why not just pick one of the big "real" engines and search it, using all of its capabilities?)
