Meta Search Engines

  1. 1. I . Metasearch Engines <ul><li>By: Megan Biggi </li></ul>
  2. 2. II. How Do They Work <ul><li>A . Intro </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. Multiple Lists.  Some metasearchers do not collate multiple-engine search results but display them instead in separate lists as they are received from each engine. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. III. When do you use Metasearch engines? <ul><li>A. Intro </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. Use metasearchers when you are in a hurry. Metasearch engines are useful and get you a quick overview on a subject and/or term. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2. Use metasearchers when you are looking up simple searches and also when you are not having any luck pulling up documents in your search. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. IV. Benifits <ul><li>A. Intro </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. Metasearch engines can give you a good general picture of what's available across the Web and where it can be found. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2. Metasearchers are also very fast. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. V. Disadvantages <ul><li>A. Intro </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. More and more, metasearch engines seem to be casting smaller nets by relying on subject directories and pay-per-click engines for their Web results </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2. Metasearch engines don't offer the all of the search options that individual search engines do. </li></ul></ul>
