Definition of Meta Search
The term Meta Search (often phrased "metasearch") refers to a search engine that searches other search engines for search results.
For example, MetaCrawler returns aggregated search results from Google Yahoo!, Bing and Ask.
Advocates of metasearch technology say that by compiling results from many of the Web's major search engines, meta search engines can deliver more relevant and comprehensive search results.
