When this search engine was first recommended to me I was sceptical about whether it would be as good as popular search engines such as Altavista or Google. It was better than I thought but still not good enough. One good feature is that it searches a total of 17 search engines which gives you a wide variety of results. Engines searched include Lycos, Altavista, Yahoo and GoTo.
When searching, the download speed of results was very quick, one of the fastest Ive seen. Google is the only engine with a faster search speed, that I have used.
The advanced search options are not up to standards and fairly restricted. All you can do is select which engines it searches.
As Dogpile searches over 15 engines the results are always wide and vast, even sometimes too wide.
Overall I would recommend other search engines such as Google or Lycos.
