Metacrawler
By Submit Corner
Tell a Friend About This Page

Overview: Metacrawler is a meta search engine which queries multiple sites at once including major industry players

Originally launched in 1995 by a graduate student and an associate professor from the University of Washington, Metacrawler became a popular meta search engine. In February of 1997, Go2Net acquired Metacrawler and now owns one of its competitors, Dogpile. Metacrawler has been voted twice by PC Magazine as Best Search Engine and has won other various awards. Today, Go2Net owns two of the largest meta search engines on the web and together queries the top search engines including Altavista, Looksmart, Lycos, GoTo, Direct Hit, Google, and Infoseek (Go Network).

Submission & Ranking Process


Metacrawler Characteristics A meta search engine itself does not index or rank websites. Instead, it queries multiple websites simultaneously and will deliver a combined results page of the best sites from each search engine. The higher you rank on each individual search engine, the higher your site will rank on a meta search engine.

Ordering Results Metacrawler sorts its results based on the number of times a website was found in the top rankings. For example, if your site was found in the top 10 on 5 search engines, your site will be ranked above a site who was found in the top 10 on only 2 search engines. The higher your site ranks on a search engine, the better chances you have on getting higher in Metacrawler.

Getting Listed (Comments) Metacrawler does not accept submissions directly through their site. Rather, you must submit to any one of the search engine partners that they use in order to get listed. We attempt to cover as many search partners as possible within this guide. Use the links in the overview section of this page to locate a partner for additional information on how to optimize your rankings for each individual search partner.

Submission Time Getting listed in Metacrawler is usually instantaneous once your site becomes ranked in a partner's search database (Wait time varies per partner). Since GoTo is the fastest submission partner, we suggest you use GoTo to submit your site through (see additional information on GoTo).
