Crawl.com "The Web 2.0 Metasearch" Enters Beta


Monday, March 5, 2007; 05:52 AM

Crawl's custom search engine technology uses a mix of AJAX, PHP, C++, and Javascript programming and is presented to you using web standards like XHTML and CSS2 to deliver the most relevant results in a rich and unique Web 2.0 format.

Conventional wisdom tells us that the three major search engines return similar results. An independent study conducted by Crawl innovations showed that less than 3% of results found in the top 10 results returned by the top 3 search engines overlap. According to ComScore Media Metrix May 2005, people use a total of 2.8 different search engines per month while searching for information on the web. Crawl brings together results from the top three search engines on the web in a comparative metasearch format that has become more popular since late in 2006.

By combining Crawl's highly customized metasearch results together with their "Crawl Vision" search preview window, Crawl is offers a refreshing new look to searchers who enjoy being able to visit one search engine instead of three to get the most relevant results.
