New Meta Search Engine AllPlus


In the recent past I was interested in search engines. You have different kind of search engines, the most famous being Google. Google is a traditional search engine.

A meta-search engine is a search engine that sends user requests to several other search engines and/or databases and returns the results from each one. Meta search enables users to enter search criteria once and access several search engines simultaneously. Since it is hard to catalogue the entire web, the idea is that by searching multiple search engines you are able to search more of the web in less time and do it with only one click. The ease of use and high probability of finding the desired page(s) make metasearch engines popular with those who are willing to weed through the lists of irrelevant 'matches'. Another use is to get at least some results when no result had been obtained with traditional search engines.

Science Roll , A medical student's journey inside genetics and medicine through web 2.0, had an article about a new meta search engine: AllPlus
It delivers results from:

  • relevant sites/articles
  • blogs
  • news
  • relevant images and videos
  • cluster tree and graph
