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

Originally launched a few years ago, Dogpile was one of the first meta search engines which queries multiple search engines simultaneously. Recently, Go2Net (owners of Metacrawler.com, a key competitor to Dogpile) acquired Dogpile for $55 million in stock and cash. 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, Infoseek (Go Network) and Yahoo!.

Submission & Ranking Process

Meta Search 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.

Search Engine Order Dogpile has a pre-defined search order which they return results on. Therefore, if you rank higher on one of the first search engines Dogpile queries, chances are quite good of your site ranking higher. We anticipate the default ordering to change often citing market conditions and companies who pay for higher rankings (ie: GoTo and Looksmart pay per delivered hit and so Dogpile has a financial interest in delivering these results first). As of September 1, 2000, the default ordering by Dogpile was:
  • GoTo
  • Looksmart
  • Dogpile Internal Catalogued Search
  • FindWhat
  • Sprinks (About.com)
  • Direct Hit
  • Google
  • Infoseek
  • Lycos
  • Altavista
  • Yahoo!

  • Getting Listed (Comments) Dogpile 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 above 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 Dogpile 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).
