Excellent

Fast, easy to use, good results

Poor UK searching, limited range of services

After being a dedicated Yahoo and Altavista man- I decided to have a look at some of the other search engines available on the net. Sometime ago I started using MetaCrawler and I haven't left since! When you first visit metacrawler.com, you immediately notice its neat, simple and uncluttered...

Combine ALL the search engines you know, and it probably still wont be as good as this! Easier than Yahoo, faster than Altavista, more spot on hits than hotbot, more flexibility than dogpile.com more exciting than excite - what more could you want? The user interface has gone through many changes...

“Tangled web untangled”

published 05/12/2000

Comprehensive search results

none

Metacrawler.com, as the name suggests is a meta search engine, any clearer?? In an ideal world you’d have plenty of time to quiz loads of search engines and you’d end up getting all sorts of results depending on things like ranking and whether or not the web master submitted or was accepted by...

“No frills, just good results”

Everything, gets the job done with no fuss

None

Metacrawler is a search engine that searches other search engines! It is a brilliant idea and even though the name suggests it is slow (crawler), it is faster than some. It searches other engines such as infoseek, google, altavista, yahoo and others. I found out about Metacrawler through my...

good search engine

none

I have used metacrawler search engine for a couple of years now, on and off. Although , there are some really god search engines about, I do think that metacrawler is a very accomplished site and a good search engine. Although, some of the results aren’t that good, sometimes you can find a...

Good search engine

Not always breinging back what you want.

Have you ever used Metacrawler? Well you should do. Its different to other search engines. Instead of you applying to a search engine to register your site in a directory, Metacrawler searches the meta tags registered on peoples pages to find their site. when you create a page using meta tags...

Maybe just a few to many adverts

Searching lots of search engines for a few pages is tedious. Usually the same pages crop up time and time again between them, even though you don't want them. Wouldn't it be great if a website took all of the pain out of trawling vast lists and actually searched the main search engines for you...

Good meta search engine.

Not a very well designed site

Metacrawler is the best of the best. It's meta search facility is certainly very capable, as it gives you very accurate results, but what makes it better than the likes of Yahoo or Excite? Well, let me explain. You can choose where your results come from: As with many search engines nowadays, you...

“Under rated search engine”

published 31/01/2001

Wide search resource

Not a very good results interface

This has got to be the most under rated search engine that is on the internet today. Metacrawler.com has by far the best search over the entire internet that I have seen. Metacrawler.com combines all of the top search engines on the net such as Google.com, Hotbot, Alta vista etc all in one. The...

“SOMETIMES A BIT SLOW BUT”

published 30/08/2001

Search within many sites

A bit slow

Once you use Metacrawler you will never stop. It does not replace other search engines, it uses them! It has several advanced search capabilities, including some simple selections on the main page. There are some dead sites, but for the most part the sites are either up or you will be redirected...

None i can think of

I used to use other search engines until one day i stumbled upon Metacrawler, and from then on its all I use. To put it short its brilliant! You can sign up for an email account, access information about often browsed topics at the click of a button and because it searches so many search engines...

very good

a few better ones

I used to use this search engine quite a lot especially when we had the internet a couple of years a go. But, now there are so many good search engines that we are literally spoilt for choice. However, I still find metacrawler helpful. It’s ability to search key phrases or sentences is very good...
