Dogpile – Pile up of Search engines

dogpile logoDogpile is one more search engine that draws and decides the results of searches from other search engines just like Fuzzfind but the algorithm is entirely different. Fuzzfind included social bookmarking websites into the search results too, but here, only the relevancy from search engines is shown.

The algorithm that dogpile uses here is Metasearch which includes averaging the search results of 6 search engines into one, and trying to bring out the best results. According to Searchenginewatch, Dogpile had made many algorithmic changes, some of which are –

  • Improvements in the blending of results
  • Tabbed search categories on the home page
  • The launch of a SearchSpy social networking widget for Netvibes or iGoogle
  • Deep links – This is similar to Google Sitelinks

And their mascot Arfie, is a dog is being always shown with some messages to save wildlife etc. Some of the glances on the homepage that i could capture are –

Dogpile pulls results from 6 other search engines, including Google, Yahoo! Search, Live Search, Ask.com, About and others. Its the best results seeing whether the website in search results is present, and in which search position it is located in every search engine.

    Ahh good old meta search engines. I am still not a big believer in these and think that they still duplicate alot of the results. Stick to what I know best for me.

    The search engine is good but unfortunatly its never going to be a rival to that other search engine beginning with G.

  7. Yet another search engine that won’t compete with the top 5… but we’ll see, definitely not going to compete with Google or Yahoo though…

  11. I nearly always use Dogpile to search. As a matter of principle I use Goggle as little as possible otherwise I just get the search results which have PAID to be near the top, whereas I want unbiased results from my searches. Big G has its place but to use it slavishly is to deny yourself some arguably more interesting results from your Internet searches – go on try it and compare – and no, I don’t get paid to say this ;-))

  12. Wow! Google, Yahoo! Search, Live Search, Ask.com, About all at a single place. A worth mention.. and this would surely help in my keyword researching. Thanks for the share.
