Companies who create their own versions of metasearch engines must have given up on trying to compete with Google and the other top search engines, and instead take advantage of the API’s and technologies available via the big three or four search technologies, integrating that data into one interface with a unique spin on ranking or listings formats. Here at the Journal, we’ve been featuring some of these metasearch engines; especially the new ones. But we won’t be able to cover them all (although we try). So the best we could do is come up with a list of these metasearch engines, made up of metasearch startups and others have been around for quite some time now.
