A Search Engine That Actually Works

AdvantagesFast, easy to use, good results

DisadvantagesPoor 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 layout, that the likes of Altavista, Lycos and Yahoo don't seem to be able to achieve. This layout means the search engine is an absolute doddle to use, the ..." Read review

Alta-what? THIS is the webs best kept secret

AdvantagesEasy to use, FAST, thorough spot on search results, minimal/no adverts

DisadvantagesNONE. Not many people using it means it runs better for people like me!

"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 since I have used it. But it has never failed to the simplest and easiest to use. In no way is any information, sections or links clattered together like ..." Read review

Tangled web untangled

AdvantagesComprehensive search results

Disadvantagesnone

"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 the engine in question. Well a meta search engine searches other search engines so you don’t have to. Cool eh?? Metacrawler searches a dozen search engines ..." Read review

Still very good

Advantagesgood search engine

" 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 site that other searches miss out. The homepage has changed a lot since it first started out, for the better mind you. It’s easy to follow, ..." Read review

No frills, just good results

AdvantagesEverything, gets the job done with no fuss

DisadvantagesNone

"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 university, as there is a link on the business school’s website. It is fantastic for searching for information on coursework or projects. It is also good for ..." Read review
