Google is the Web Search engine that I use more often, but I would like to know if there are web apps were you can define a list of search engines or webisite you want to retrieve the data for, in a single shot.

The idea is to specify, for example, that I want retrieve the search results from:

  • 10 top results from Google
  • 10 from Bing
  • 10 from Microsoft MSDN Forums
  • 10 from Stack Overflow

Do you know something useful?

MetCrawler is an online solution:

MetaCrawler.com utilizes metasearch technology to compile results from many of the Web's major search properties, delivering more relevant and comprehensive results every time you search. By accessing multiple search engines for each query, MetaCrawler.com provides you with a richer and more relevant spectrum of results than you would from using any single search engine.

Here's one that's been around for a while:


From the front page it looks like it searches Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask.

Powered by Metasearch technology, Dogpile returns all the best results from leading search engines including Google, Yahoo!, Bing and Ask, so you find what you’re looking for faster.
