What is a web meta-searcher?
A meta-searcher helps to make this task more efficient by providing a central location where the query is typed in once, and results can be obtained from multiple search engines.
Meta-searchers differ from other search engines and indexes:
Single search engines and indexes provide a collection, or database of resources that can be queried.
Meta-searchers do not provide a database. They provide a service that sends a single query to multiple databases.
