More about Search Engines

A search engine is a program that looks for specific words or phrases in documents on the Internet. With hundreds of millions of pages on the World Wide Web alone (and ever-increasing), no search engine covers them all and each one looks and operates a bit differently.

A metasearch engine searches across several search engines and combines the results--without having to search multiple search engines individually. Since search engines operate differently and have unique indexes of websites, metasearch engines can be a useful tool.
